Curling Canada Introducing a New Individual Membership Fee Effective 2017/18 season Let’s talk about the new $2 per curler membership fee, what it will do for you and for the sport of curling in Canada.
Curling Canada will be replacing the existing per-sheet assessment that has existed, well, forever, it seems with an Individual Membership Fee. The existing system has an abundance of problems, not the least of which are that it is inconsistent with Sport Canada’s requirements for a National Sports Organization, and it makes Curling Canada one of the very few, if not ONLY, NSO that does not collect individual member data.
So, those are Curling Canada’s reasons for needing to switch to the individual membership fee. But the benefits to your clubs are just as important as we continue to work together to build our great game. For instance: • Under the existing system, your curlers have no way of seeing how the money they pay you is being divided. The new system will show how their club fees are split between Curling Canada, your Member Association and elsewhere. It will be a transparent transaction. • When curlers register, their information is secure. Full stop. Firewalls will be in place to ensure that individual curler information remains within their curling club and goes no further. But the general data — the key information that shows demographic trends in age, ethnicity, rate of participation — will be used by us and our government funding partners to plan around, as well as for, those trends, to make sure curling continues to grow at a healthy pace. • While the way a fee is collected will change, your club will continue to receive the same benefits from Curling Canada, supporting national club and membership development, technical and coaching resources, national marketing of the sport and the highly successful Season of Champions television product.
For 70% of clubs the $2 per member fee is cheaper than the per sheet fee.
As you go through this process, please don’t forget one key fact: We have worked with Curling Canada to keep our national membership fees low. They are currently the lowest national membership fees in Canada.
