What is curling?

Curling is an international sport dating back to the 16th century. Compared to Canada which has almost one million players, the United States is relatively new to the curling landscape.

When curling became an official Olympic sport in 1998, a new generation of Americans discovered the sport. Sometimes referred to as “chess on ice,” curling offers a unique combination of strategy, finesse, athletics, teamwork and camaraderie.


With your support, we can build the only dedicated curling facility in California providing youth and adaptive programs, competitive development, recreational leagues and more.
