The Spirit of Curling

Curling is a game of skill and of traditions.
A shot well executed is a delight to see and so, too, it is a fine thing to observe
the time-honored traditions of curling being applied in the true spirit of the game.
Curlers play to win but never to humble their opponents.
A true curler would prefer to lose rather than win unfairly.

A good curler never attempts to distract an opponent
or otherwise prevent him/her from playing his/her best.

No curler ever deliberately breaks a rule of the game or any of its traditions.
But, if he/she should do so inadvertently and be aware of it, he/she is the first to divulge the breach.

While the main object to the game of curling is to determine the relative skills of the players,
the spirit of the game demands good sportsmanship, kindly feeling and honorable conduct.
This spirit should influence both the interpretation and application of the rules of the game
and also the conduct of all participants on and off the ice.
