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.
For winter sessions, registration begins December 10, 2019 and programs begin January 11, 2020.
Program is 8 weeks in length.
Pre-registration is only available for past participants. New registrations are first come first serve — instructional programs tend to fill quickly, so call/email early! Click on links below for registration form and information.

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.

This adult instructional league is designed to be an introduction to league play for people who have recently taken curling lessons.

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
