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?

Update: Finding a Location, Part 2

Hayward exteriorWarp speed-like progress... after touring the 5 potential sites last Wednesday, we quickly whittled it down to 2 locations, 1 in San Leandro and 1 in Hayward. Then a larger group (a few construction/engineers types) went to check these 2 locations again on Saturday with an eye for what would work best.

Update: Finding a Location

Hi everyone! This is the first of many frequent posts updating you on what's happening with Dedicated Ice (DI). We're hoping to post frequent updates on our progress as we get closer to building out a facility.

Members of the DI committee have been working with a Commercial Real Estate Broker (Cushman Wakefield) to help us find a suitable building somewhere between Oakland and Fremont. In December we started with a list of 42 properties. After reviewing the list with the broker and offering our feedback (too big, too small, wrong configuration, not close enough to public transportation, etc.), the broker created a short list of 11 properties — 2 in Oakland, 5 in San Leandro, and 3 in Hayward.

San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club officially announces dedicated ice fundraising kickoff!

San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is excited to announce that we're officially kicking off our fundraising campaign for a dedicated curling facility in the Bay Area. Our initial goal is to raise $600,000 to build a 4-5 sheet club with all the basics, including ice and refrigeration equipment, warm room, bar, and restrooms. The club is currently planning a number of fundraising events, including viewing parties before and during the Olympics, as well as an auction (start thinking about what you can donate!).

Curling Demo in Union Square!

Help us get the word out about curling and the SFBACC! On Saturday, December 14, from 9-10am., we will be demonstrating curling at the Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square. Volunteers are needed for the first ever outdoor curling in San Francisco! We will be demonstrating how the sport is played (demo only, no instruction), and signing folks up for learn-to-curls. Help is also needed to move rocks and prep the ice.
