About SVCC

Silicon Valley Curling Club

We are a California-registered, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation with the goals to support and develop the capabilities of amateur curling athletes in order to participate in national, international, and Olympic competition.

We run introductory clinics for the public to try the sport and lesson series to develop skills. Our members participate in leagues throughout the year, travel to other clubs for bonspiels (tournaments), and bid to compete in national events such as US Arena National Championships.

Our activities are held at Solar4America Ice Centers (formerly Sharks Ice) in San Jose and Fremont. Our friends at the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club hold similar activities at Oakland Ice Center and are building the only curling-only facility in California. Our friends at Granite Curling of California travel far and wide to promote the sport.

SVCC and its members belong to the Mountain Pacific Curling Association and the US Curling Association.
