Use the form below to register your team for the SFBACC intra-club playdowns for the 2015 Men's and Women's Arena National Championships to be held July 16-19, 2015 in Cedar Rapids, IA. The goal of this event is to help arena curlers get national-level experience and to build the arena curling community. Like other national championships, the event will have officials and timed games - something few arena curlers have an opportunity to experience. Arena Nationals is expected to feature 16 men's and 16 women's teams selected by a regional lottery from all entries.
