Goal: To grow the sport of curling in areas where it is new or without dedicated facilities.
This website discussion group provides information to U.S. arena curling clubs playing on ice designed primarily for hockey and figure skating. We cover a variety of topics such as ice making, equipment, club member recruitment and retention, finance and business, club governance,and anything else you need to keep your arena club thriving.
As a member of an arena curling club, the importance of your contributions to building the sport of curling in the United States is both recognized and appreciated. If you are relatively new to the challenges of growing and managing curling in an arena facility, please let us know what information you would consider most helpful.
This forum can boast members of clubs from across the country. No two arena curling clubs will be exactly the same because of following:
LOCATION (climate, population, market)
ARENA (building, contracts, arena support)
RESOURCES (people, money, equipment)
There are many ways to accomplish tasks and activities. Don't reinvent the wheel. The members of this group have the expertise to help you - just ask!
If you are part of an arena club that has been around long enough to have solved a good number of problems and have some tips or success stories to share, please donít be shy.
Also, be sure to check out the FILES section (see menu on left) - an entire library of resources is available.
