About Curling

The sport of curling traces its roots back to the fifteenth century Scotland. It is a sport steeped in tradition and in 1998 rejoined the Olympic games in Nagano. We invite you to explore the sport by clicking on one of the following links.

Curling is a game of skill and traditions.  A shot well executed is a delight to see and so, too, it is a fine thing to observe the time-honored traditions of curling being applied in the true spirit of the game.  Curlers play to win but never to humble their opponents.  A true curler would prefer to lose rather than win unfairly. A good curler never attempts to distract an opponent or otherwise prevent another curler from playing his or her best. No curler ever deliberately breaks a rule of the game or any of its traditions.  But, if a curler should do so inadvertently and be aware of it, he or she is the first to divulge the breach. While the main objective of the game is to determine the relative skills of the players, the spirit of the game demands good sportsmanship, kindly feeling and honorable conduct.  This spirit should influence both the interpretation and application of the rules of the game and also the conduct of all participants on and off the ice.
