“As a young curler, my role models in the sport were instrumental to the development of my goals and ambitions. It is now my privilege to be on the other side of the equation, giving back to the curling community through volunteering at local curling clubs, coaching junior programs, and introducing the sport to new curlers.”

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.
