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 teach thousands of Bay Area residents to curl every year!

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!

More on the New High Performance Plan

To SFBACC members,

As you know, the USCA has been holding town hall meetings to explain the High Performance Plan (HPP) that was created in 2008 and used last year to help prepare our Olympic teams. These meetings also cover the ongoing process to revise that plan, what it could mean for current and future athletes and how it relates to our funding from the US Olympic Committee.

USCA High Performance Meeting - Wed, July 28

The US is changing its approach to high performance training and this is your chance to learn about that and give input. USCA COO Rick Patzke, 2010 Olympic coach Phill Drobnick and two Olympians will be at the meeting. Sharks Ice at San Jose, upstairs conference room, 5 pm, Wed July 28. (This is before the Vernon Davis charity curling event.) We'll try to hold some alternate sessions for folks who can't make it (and possibly some web/conference call options.) Questions? - or to let organizers know that you'd like to attend but can't make this session, email gabrielle@bayareacurling.com.

San Jose Spring Leagues wrap-up

Two San Jose leagues completed on June 22, 2010. The 10-week league had Team Okada (Takashi Okada, Andrew Lam, Laura Klein, Eric Prestemon) triumphing over Team Bollinger (Steve Bollinger, Boris Fedorov, Kelly Jeffery, Robert Garber).
