How to Get Started Curling
If you need some extra instruction, we have a Learn to Curl program for adults in fall and winter sessions, and a Greenhorn league to get new curlers involved in league play with the extra help of instruction if needed.
If you are ready to join a league, CCC has league play every day throughout the season from 8:30 in the morning through to 11 at night. There are club leagues every evening, and associate leagues during the day.
Visit our Leagues Page for information on all of our leagues as well as contact information for the associate leagues that might be looking for more teams.
Our winter session begins 1st week of January — see below under specific programs for availability.
Next season youth program registration begins September 11, 2017 and programs begin mid-October.
All programs are about 8 weeks in length.
Pre-registration is only available for past participants. New registrations are first call first in — instructional programs tend to fill quickly, so call/email early!
