To keep ourselves, our families and our communities safe, we’ve all had to make changes in our lives. And so it is with curling. There will be changes to how we play the game we love – but it won’t take much time to get used to them. Following are the highlights.

HELP!! Keep the game safe for everyone
Jasper Place Curling is counting on each curler to follow the guidelines to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the building. We also ask that you point out to others if they need a reminder about the rules. Let’s work together to make the 2020/21 curling season another great one.
Triples curling is designed to offer a fast (six ends), fun game where no player stands around to ensure social distancing. It also offers each of the three curlers a chance at the three different positions (delivering the rock, sweeping, and determining strategy and calling line) Check out the details.

Do each of the three players in Triples curling play two consecutive ends in the same position, then move, or do they change positions every end?
Each member plays two consecutive ends at the same position, then rotates to a new position.
Can I switch out of Triples and into regular 4-person team play – or switch into Triples play from 4-person play – part way through the season?
Yes, wherever possible, you can move between the club league and the triples league on the same night whenever the 5-game square ends and is re-drawn for the next 5 games.
Where do the three Team B players stand when Team A is throwing?
They will stand on the identified marks at the side of each sheet.
How do the teams determine last rock without a coin toss?
There are lots of ways. Choose odd or even, determine a number between 1 and 10; play rock-paper-scissors; use your phone’s random draw feature if it has one; make up your own way with your opponent.
