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 teach thousands of Bay Area residents to curl every year!

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. But we can't do it without your support. Please join us and make your tax-deductible gift today: DONATE NOW!

Get Your SFBACC Uniform Jacket!

Loreen is taking orders now for the new uniform jacket! This is the first time we've done this and there were several reasons: 1. so club members have something cool to wear when they're curling or teaching, 2. so club competitors can save money by not having to purchase a jacket for every playdown. The club is planning to purchase a few jackets that can be rented and that will have velcro on the back to attach a last name, if you choose not to buy, but the size choices will be limited. Purchased jackets will have your first name stitched on the front, as well.
