Upcoming Events

Established in 1958, the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is the oldest arena curling club in the United States. SFBACC is a nationally-recognized leader in curling development, providing learning opportunities, youth scholarships, competitive development, recreational leagues, corporate and private events, and more. We have already taught thousands of Bay Area residents to curl in 2014.

Now, we are raising funds to build a dedicated curling center right here in the Bay Area so that we can take these programs to the next level. But we can't do it without your support. Please join us and make your tax-deductible gift today: DONATE NOW!

Continuing Events at the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club


Ever wanted to try curling? This is your chance! Throughout the year the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club offers many low-cost curling clinics. Curling clinics are a comprehensive introduction to the Olympic sport of curling. You will learn the basics of the game, a bit of curling history, and technique fundamentals. During the second half of the session we also hold mini-games as space and time permit.
