Day Curlers


    General Information

    The Day Curlers’ League is a day time, friendly, open, senior league that meets at least twice a week to curl and is primarily attended by, but not restricted to, retired men and women age 50 and above who prefer the “Tag Draw” curling format as well as regular special events. 

    The Day Curlers’ mandate is to provide a balanced curling program between social, recreational and competitive curling activities as well as satisfying the wide diversity of age and physical ability of its members. Fun, fellowship, and exercise are our main objectives.


    Primary Activities

Submit your name tag at the time/day of arrival indicating your preferred team position.
