Background

Diversity and Inclusivity

Curling is a place for everyone. An individual’s journey into curling begins with community clubs. Therefore, it’s crucial that clubs are able to create environments where people feel welcome and enjoy their experience. This will help foster a new wave of diverse members. It is important that they feel safe and free of any discrimination or maltreatment. 

We have created a digital resource kit in support of creating meaningful change towards greater diversity and inclusivity in the sport of curling.

This guide has been broken down into tangible areas of focus, that can be reviewed, adapted and implemented, either independently or as part of a more holistic journey for the growth and betterment of our sport.
