The Missoula Curling Club is a non-profit organization that aims to introduce people to the sport of curling as well as organize recreational and competitive leagues.

We want to hear from you! August 26, 2020

Please take a few quick minutes to let us know about how you feel about returning to curling in Missoula.

We have identified several rule changes and logistics tweaks that we believe can offer players the ability to play while still social distancing from one another.

Some of these changes include:

  • Curlers will be required to wear masks.
  • Only one sweeper will sweep the stone.
  • Those waiting to throw or sweep will have general areas to stand away from one another.
  • Games will start in alternating directions to minimize groups on one side of the ice.
  • Curlers will be responsible for moving their own two stones.
  • Players will be encouraged to wear gloves when curling.
  • Stones and surfaces will be disinfected between games.

Still, we understand many hold health concerns or are under new financial pressures due to the hit the economy has taken during the pandemic.

Therefore, we are asking you all to take a couple of minutes to fill out a quick survey so we can gauge interest in curling and concerns you may have.

Club Announces Return to Curling Rules August 11, 2020

We are beginning to plan for a return to curling that promotes safe play and social distancing. The Club has been working with USA Curling to develop plans to combat COVID that we have begun to outline on a new site.

In the coming weeks, we will be announcing playing options that offer flexibility and affordability -- two things we have heard from you are important this season -- for you all.

Headgear Options November 06, 2019

As we kick off this brand-new season of curling some people have been asking about the curling safety gear that players, including myself, have been wearing. I have seen multiple players receive concussions from impacts with the ice. Speaking as someone who has had loved one have to deal with TBI, I can tell you that the brain is a delicate thing. Protect what you got!

 

Here are a few head gear options to check out. I know there are other options available, but I wanted to send links to safety gear that I have seen our membership wearing on the ice. I'm sure that I can speak for the other players out there, I would be more than happy to show you what I wear so you could check it out, first hand, some of these options.
