Good luck to Teams Virginia as they hit the ice today to represent the Club in the 2nd Arena National Curling Championships in Michigan!
Thirty-two teams from California to South Carolina will compete in this national curling championship, which is conducted by the US Curling Association and designed for club curlers who utilize arena-style ice conditions to determine the top arena team in the nation.
Stitch in Time!
The Curling Club of Virginia is excited and honored to make it on the new webpage for Rich’s Stitches of Richmond!
Rich’s Stitches has been outfitting Club members in our sleek competition uniforms for a second year, and our members couldn’t be happier! From our Nationals jackets and bonspiel shirts, to our matching baseball hats and fleece vests, our club members routinely get compliments on our sharp dress.
When Rich’s Stitches unveiled their new website this week, we were surprised and honored to find a picture of our Inaugural Arena Championship teams featured! Thanks to Rich’s Stitches for showcasing us in our jackets, and for making us look good when we take the ice!
Representatives from U.S. Curling Association are coming to Richmond to offer a workshop to train future curling instructors. Participants from New Jersey to South Carolina – including 14 future instructors from the Curling Club of Virginia— will receive training to help beginner curlers play the game and improve basic skills.
This is the first time the national curling organization has held a course in Virginia. Since the Winter Olympics, the Curling Club of Virginia has taught more than 500 Virginia residents during one of the Club’s many new curler events.
