Safety First

Business of Curling

Today’s Canadian curling centres aren’t just a building with some frozen water with rings painted in them; they’re places of business, looking for that little edge that will make their centre a little more appealing to potential customers.

Coaching Info

Every great curler can tell you a story about a coach who had a significant impact on their career, and in some cases, continue to have that impact. This is where you’ll find out what it takes to be a coach — whether you’re just starting out, or looking to add to your coaching tool-kit!
