Frequently Asked Questions

regarding memberships

2019/20 SCBC Memberships

2019/20 SCBC Memberships are now available for purchase. Your membership fees are used to pay for administrative costs for SCBC including insurance, marketing and memberships (CEC, SportBC). This year has seen an increase in the cost of ranked memberships to offset these administrative costs.

Full financials will be presented at the AGM on October 5th, 2019, but a breakdown of costs can be found here.

Ranked vs Un-ranked

A Ranked competitor will have their points tracked by SCBC and count towards Provincial Rankings, Provincial titles and Team BC. selection.
Un-Ranked competitors may compete up to the Provincial Championship level but will not have their points tracked and are not eligible for Provincial titles. Un-Ranked competitors may not compete at Regional nor at National Level competitions.

Regional & National Comps

  • * Youth D competitors may NOT compete beyond the Provincial level and therefore cannot compete at either Regionals or Nationals.
  • * Youth C competitors MAY compete at Regionals but are NOT eligible to compete at Nationals.
  • * Youth B and Open competitors ARE eligible to qualify for both Regional and National competitions.


You may upgrade your membership at any time throughout the competition season. When you upgrade from an Un-Ranked to a Ranked membership, results from competitions prior to the upgrade will NOT be counted towards your ranking.

Age Categories

Youth categories are divided into two year increments. Your correct category is determined by your birth year and not your age.

Youth A and Junior will compete with Open for all SCBC competitions and will be scored in their respective Youth category as well as in Open.
