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?

Curling on Parade

Come make curling history! SFBACC is celebrating curling and our community with a half-million people at our first San Francisco Pride on Sunday, June 30th. Sponsored in part by the USCA's Darwin Curtis grant, we aim to raise awareness of the sport in the Bay Area and beyond.

All members, family, and friends are welcome. Pride Parade contingents are packed with people who aren't LGBT, but support those who are and celebrate their organization's role in the community. We want Bay Area Curling to be a big and vibrant bunch. The more, the merrier.

Advanced Lessons with Wes Seeger

We are thrilled to announce that our very own USCA Certified Master Trainer, Wes Seeger, will be holding a set of advanced lessons on Fridays and Saturdays this summer. See inside for details.

Spring Competitive Curling BBQ - All Are Welcome

The SFBACC is holding its semiannual competitive curling BBQ/pot luck on Sunday, May 19(the weekend before the bonspiel) in Mountain View. The food and fun will start at 3, and then a group discussion of any and all issues related to competitive curling will start at 4 pm. This is a great chance for new curlers who are curious about the competitive curling process to meet folks and ask questions.
