Curling has no height limit

Youth are an important group here at the Rose City Curling Club. Programs like the Little Rockers organized by the U of A Augustana Vikings Curling Team encourage and support children as young as 6 years old to try the sport of curling. As kids get older, the Camrose Academy of Curling’s technical training program and student curling leagues are there to provide continued instruction and guidance.

Online payments now available

Online payments for Credit/Debit are now accepted through the curling.io registration system. In order to pay with a debit card online, it needs to have a Visa or MasterCard logo. This service is available for league registrations and locker rentals as well as bonspiel entries and special events. The Cash/Cheque payment option is also still available requiring you to make payment in person at the curling club office.

We hope by offering the ability to pay online, our registration process will be easier for both the curlers and our management. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns and thank you in advance for your continued patience as we transition into using curling.io.
