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.
NOTE: Adult Learn to Curl and Youth Lite Rock programs are suspended for the fall sessions in 2020. We will decide on the winter session possibilities some time in November.
For fall sessions, registration begins September 2020 and programs begin October 2020.
Youth registration is only available for past participants, Greenhorn for those with previous ice experience.

In this program participants use “Lite” rocks which are similar in size to regular rocks but are lighter so they require less effort to deliver them. The program consists of instruction and play time in game-like situations but the primary focus is on fun and skill development. Brooms and sliders are provided. All participants must wear helmets and clean, soft-soled shoes. It gets chilly on the ice so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately.
It is expected that an adult responsible for your child be at the club while your child is on the ice.

Adult Greenhorn League
Next session begins October 24, 2020, cost $105 plus gst
Registration begins September 22, 2020
Saturdays 5-6:30pm for 6 weeks
This adult instructional league is designed to be an introduction to league play for people who have recently taken curling lessons. While the main focus of the league is game-play, there will be instructors present to provide guidance, give pointers and answer questions. The first day of each session will consist of a refresher lesson before heading into a game. Subsequent classes will consist mostly of play.
All registrants must have participated in introductory curling lessons such as Learn To Curl, a Curling Crash Course, or private lessons. Participants are required to provide their own curling equipment, which can be purchased or rented from Curler’s Corner, located inside the Calgary Curling Club.
NOTE: Registration is individual, as teams are made up each week to allow players the chance to play and learn all positions. Spares are not required should a participant have to miss a program day
