Looking for a cool activity?  Drop-in on our wheelchair curling program this winter and see what its all about.  Learn the foundations of stick curling in a welcoming and fun atmosphere.  Each week we work on some skill development with our resident coaches and experienced curlers, and then play a scrimmage of 2-on-2 where you can practice what you learned.

We are happy to help make accommodations for people of all abilities.  We have a variety of curling sticks for people to use depending on your hand coordination and strength.  We do have a spare wheelchair for those to try if they do not own their own.  We recommend dressing in layers so that you can stay warm while out on the ice surface.

If you have a request, please contact us and we will work with you to make accommodations to the best of our ability.  Please email info@calgarywheelchaircurling.com with your request.
