“Curling is a sport I’m passionate about, sure but it’s also a safe space, an inclusive space, where all of life’s issues are set aside for a few hours, with friends that last a lifetime. I feel at home on that pebbled ice, sometimes when I really needed it, and that’s why I love curling.”

WHY CURLING

OVERALL HEALTH

The physical, mental and social benefits from staying active and participating in a sport like curling are profound. Instilling good lifestyle habits at a young age can result in a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life for years to come.

CHARACTER BUILDING

Curling can test, push and help define one’s character—discipline, compromise, leadership and self-confidence are just a handful of the attributes developed through this passionate game of inches, and at times centimeters.

MENTAL APTITUDE

It’s bigger than the game, and more than the championships.  Curling offers the chance to improve mental capacity, increase an awareness of surroundings and hone the strategic thinking skills that can lead to academic and professional successes.

SOCIAL CONNECTIONS

All team sports, and curling in particular with its incredible sense of community, have the potential to foster deep and meaningful, life-long friendships. Curling clubs across Canada welcome every athlete, spectator, coach and curling enthusiast with open arms—it’s simply the curling way!

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

Curling enhances balance, strength and hand-eye coordination. It’s an accessible and adaptable sport that can grow with every athlete at every level of the game. From the elite of our sport to our smallest rock throwers, athletic and physical developments are a reflection of the time and energy invested.

HEALTHY COMPETITION

Life is full of competitive scenarios. Learning how to win and lose with grace, as well as how to persevere to achieve goals, will serve curlers exceptionally well in everyday situations throughout their lives.

WAYS TO GIVE

There are many ways to give back to the sport you love and
invest in the future generation of curlers across Canada.
