Thinking of trying the sport of curling?
Curling is a unique sport that requires both skill and strategy. It is often referred to as chess on ice. It is a lifelong sport that can be learned at any age. Whether playing in a competitive or recreational league, the emphasis is always on sportsmanship, fun and fair play. Being a social sport by nature, it is not uncommon for teams to socialize off the ice where lasting friendships are often made.
When are games played?
The curling season at the Highland Community Curing Club runs from October to April. Youth leagues run on Sunday mornings, while adults leagues run on week-days, week-nights and weekends.
Refer to Curling > Leagues for more details.
Do I need to be part of a team to join the club?
You do not need to be part of a team to join the club. You can register for leagues as an individual and the league convener will work to place you on an appropriate team. Teams is our competetive leagues are formed for the entire season. In our recreational leagues, teams are shuffled by the convener 3 to 4 times per season, so curlers can try new positions and play with a variety of other curlers. If you want to curl as a couple, or with a friend, generally that can be accommodated too.
What leagues are right for me?
We offer leagues for all skill levels and interests. Our Club 'C' leagues provide a competitive environment for teams of all abilities. Our recreational leagues focus more on skills development, possibly trying a new position, playing with different curlers on a team, and the social aspects of the game. All leagues are founded on the principles of fun, sportsmanship and fair play.
Please refer to Curling > Leagues for more details about our available leagues.
