About Schools Curling

Introducing Schools Curling – the only ice sport with regular school team competitions! Rooted in the tradition of the Spirit of Curling, our Schools Curling program emphasises sportsmanship, camaraderie, and a vibrant and fun atmosphere.

On the ice, students learn about teamwork, technique and strategic thinking... and a bit of physics! Our inclusive sport welcomes students of all ages and abilities. Students with different physical abilities, including wheelchair users and vision or hearing impaired students are welcome to join our Schools Curling programme!

Contact us to find out how you and your students can experience the unique thrills of curling. Though our Schools Curling programme typically hosts secondary school students, we can find ways to cater for all ages.
