Saturday Social curling at VCC offers you the chance to curl when you want without having to make a weekly commitment. Novice curlers are welcomed too!
Register online each week by Wednesday night to curl on the following Saturday, either individually or in groups. We'll let you know on Thursday who has signed up to curl on Saturday and set the games up. For more go to our Saturday Social page.

I’ve taught curling to countless groups and individuals over the years since I first started working in curling at the old Vancouver Curling Club in 1993. It’s been my observation from both teaching the fundamentals and working on my own game in preparation for competition that balance is the key ingredient separating most club curlers from those playing at a competitive level.
