Class size is limited. Clubs may register up to three (3) representatives.

Registration is NOW OPEN for the seminar. Please note that there may be a nominal registration fee charged at registration the day of the event.

Welcome to the new

Thanks for taking a moment to visit the new digs. We hope you like what we’ve done to the place!

Our new website features most of the same functionality of our previous site, along with some new self-serve features that will make it easier for you to promote your clubs programs and bonspiels with us.

The website features:

  • Our events calendar, where you can promote your inter-club bonspiels, or your Open Houses.
  • A NEW self-serve “classified” section where you can promote your Learn to curl programs, or advertise openings in your youth or adult programming
  • A NEW self-serve youth free-agent listing service, where players can find teams, teams can find players, or coaches can find a team to coach for the upcoming season.

We’re still pulling the down the scaffolding and packing away the drop cloths, so if you find something that doesn’t quite work right or needs a bit of finishing, let us know at

Good curling in 2021!
