Thinking of trying the sport of curling?
Curling is a unique sport that requires both skill and strategy. It is often referred to as chess on ice. It is a lifelong sport that can be learned at any age. Whether playing in a fun league or in a competitive ladder the emphasis is always on sportsmanship and fair play. Being a social sport by nature, it is not uncommon for teams to socialize off the ice where lasting friendships are often made.
When are games played?
The curling season at the Simcoe Curling Club runs from the end of October to mid April. Learn to Curl and the Youth program typically are on weekends. Leagues run during the weekday, weeknights and evenings on the weekend. See our Leagues and Fees page for full details.
