Additional Details for the Day!

Equipment -  No curling gear - no problem! GCC has brooms and sliders available if needed at no additional charge.


  • Stretchy/athletic pants and short jackets for a comfortable delivery.
  • Layered clothing and thin gloves/mittens to stay warm.
  • Clean indoor shoes that are flat and preferably have rubber soles (for extra grip).

Do Not Wear

  • Boots.
  • Shorts.
  • Long scarfs or coats.
  • Pants with ripped knees.

Basic Safety & Operational Rules for Garrison Curling Club

  • Shoes should be cleaned by using the boot cleaner before entering the ice area.
  • Do not lift rocks off the ice. This is unsafe and often results in damage to the ice and potential injury to the curler.
  • Listen carefully to all instructions from GCC staff. They are there to ensure you have fun and remain safe.
  • If you’re wearing a slider, always step on the ice with the non-sliding foot first. Only use a slider when you’re delivering a rock.
  • Don’t throw a rock to the other end without someone there to catch it. Don’t allow rocks to impact the hacks or end boards.
  • Use discretion when throwing rocks, as they may be dangerous to others.
  • Don’t run on the ice. Picking up your feet in a conventional running stride often leads to a slip-and-fall.
  • Return the rocks, sliders and brooms to their original spots at the end of the game.
  • Avoid placing hands, kneeling or lying on the ice; it degrades the pebble.
  • Only water in spill-proof containers may be brought into the arena. All food and other beverages (this includes alcohol, coffee, etc.) must remain in the lobby.
