Wauwatosa Curling Club
Five-Rock Rule
Add one rock to the the Free Guard Zone Rule

Effective 2018/19 season

Effective with the 2018/19 season, the Free Guard Zone Rule will go from 4 to 5 rocks. This change has been adopted by the World Curling Federation, USA Curling, and most curling clubs, including Wauwatosa.

The idea is to keep more stones in play and to make for a more interesting game, particularly when one team has a significant lead in score.

Under the Five-Rock Rule, teams are not permitted to eliminate from play their opponent’s rocks that are sitting in the Free Guard Zone until five stones have been played in a given end (two from each team plus one more).

The Free Guard Zone (FGZ) is the area between the hog and tee lines, excluding the house.

The rocks in this area are in play but cannot score unless they are advanced into the house. Players can still hit and move their opponent's guards in the Free Guard Zone, as long as they do NOT knock them out of play prior to the delivery of the sixth stone of an end.
