Sparing Guidelines

  1. Try to find a spare from those listed as available to spare within your league, before looking in other leagues:
    • Member-Central > Find A Spare
  2. Try to find a spare who normally plays at the same position/level.
  3. Please use Member-Central > My Sparing Availability, to indicate if you are regularly available to spare in a league.

It is the responsibility of all HCCC members to be aware of our League Guidelines and to adhere to the Sparing guidelines, rules and restrictions within:

  • Curling > Leagues > League Guidelines

Any infraction will be subject to review and possible action.

We are a fully volunteer run club and rely on the honour system for adherence to our Sparing guidelines.
