Lewiston Curling Club League Structure:
Lewiston Curling Club leagues run for 12 weeks each winter. Leagues typically start around the first week of January and continue through early April, with a week off in late March to coincide with Spring Break. The season culminates with the club championship playdowns, which typically take place around the first Saturday in April (depending upon where Spring Break and Easter Weekend fall on the calendar). The championship playdowns consist of the top 8 league teams during the season playing a single day tournament; winners are awarded the Glen Alsobrooks Memorial Cup.
There are four different league nights available from Monday through Thursday with games starting at 7:00pm. Each league night consists of four teams, which are created each season by the club's Games Committee in order to try and spread the competitive balance across all of the teams on a given league night. This also ensures that new/less experienced curlers are paired with more experienced curlers, and all curlers benefit from playing with a different set of teammates each season.
Mini season is a four to six week session that typically starts in the last week of November. Mini-season is a non-competitive league that is designed to allow curlers to "get their curling legs" back under them in advance of the regular season, as well as teaching the game to new curlers. Players change teams and positions each week during the mini season. Mini season sessions are held on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights with games starting at 7:00pm. First year curlers who want to join a league night will be required to play mini-season. We also have a "New Curler 'Try Curling' Option" for aspiring new players who would like to try curling during mini season.
Friday Social League:
The Friday Social League is a non-competitive friendly league that meets each week of the season on Friday morning. Players change teams and positions each week just like the mini-season, with the goal of providing a friendly atmosphere in which to play and socialize with other club members.
