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?

If you want to participate in the US Mixed Championships 2011, please remember to register by January 20 at the USCA webpage.
Our regional playdown is administered by MOPAC. It will be held at the Seattle Curling Club February 26 and 27. The Seattle Calendar shows Monday 2/28 as overflow date, so MOPAC might use it if there are too many teams (WA state is held in parallel sharing the ice).
