Each year the Castlegar Curling Club offers a Learn to Curl program following the Curl Canada guidelines.  The program last weekend, taught by qualified instructors, gives newcomers everything they need to get themselves onto the ice and participate in this fun, social, skilled and strategic sport.

The curling season begins in October and usually runs until March or April and is open to men, women, and youth of all ages. Games run Monday through Friday throughout the day and evenings. The public is welcome to come and watch the games from our upstairs lounge (licenced) or from the viewing area at ice level for those under the age of 19.

If you would like to learn more about curling, a Fun League is offered on Tuesday evenings as well.  Call the rink at 250-365-6666 for more information.
