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.

From the USCA:
Please let your club members know that all curlers are invited to participate in an online USA Curling Webinar to learn more about opportunities for curlers to compete at the national level. Sam Williams, Chair of Grassroots Competitions, will discuss the growing number of championship events available to curlers across the country. He will also be able to answer your questions about recent developments in the rules. In addition, Shelley Dropkin, past president of the United States Women’s Curling Association, will discuss developmental programs offered by the USWCA. Some may be surprised to learn that several of these developmental programs are open to participants of both genders!
