Upcoming Events

Established in 1958, the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is the oldest arena curling club in the United States. SFBACC is a nationally-recognized leader in curling development, providing learning opportunities, youth scholarships, competitive development, recreational leagues, corporate and private events, and more. We have already taught thousands of Bay Area residents to curl in 2014. Now, we are raising funds to build a dedicated curling center right here in the Bay Area so that we can take these programs to the next level. Will you join us?

A Year-end Letter from the President...

Hello SFBACC curlers and friends,

Every season, we worry about having enough curlers to fill a league, and yet we have done this non-stop since January 2006. Absolutely unbelievable!

I want to thank all of you for the support that you have given to grow our club. I won't name names, because I'm sure to
