It’s time to get back to Curling!
As we all look forward to a new start this fall, the RA will put everyone's health and safety first as part of Return the Play (RTP). RTP guidelines have just been released by Curling Canada and CurlON, and the executive will be updating protocols to ensure compliance with any and all civil authority health requirements that will be in effect when the curling season begins.

We are thrilled to announce that the RA has undertaken the development of a Curling Centre of Excellence – ensuring that curling remains ingrained in our history while inspiring our future. Under the leadership of the RA Management and Board, and with the avid interest of CurlON and the OVCA, the former hockey arena at the RA Centre will be re-developed into a Curling Centre of Excellence ready to welcome RACC members for club play this upcoming curling season. Our initial focus in this multi-phase Curling Centre of Excellence project will be to prepare the ice surface and plan the on-ice experience for play this Fall.
The RA Curling Club (RACC) is proud to offer leagues for all ages and skill levels. As an active club, we offer day and evening leagues. Our curlers range from novice to competitive. If you are new to our club, new in the area or new to curling, our volunteer conveners and executive committee members will help you locate a team.
New curlers can sign up for our Learn-to-Curl programs given by trained instructors and can participate in our mentoring programs. We also offer a Youth Program. The club hosts a number of fun, social events and all members are welcome to participate.
Join us! – We have something for everyone!
August 10, 2021 – A pair of events that will have significant ramifications in the qualifying process for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing will be staged at the RA Centre, it was announced today by Curling Canada.
Earlier this month we announced that the Curling Centre of Excellence will evolve through a multi-year plan, expanding RA Curling Club programming and training opportunities, partnering with provincial and national organizations and events to leverage the creation of a stadium ice experience.
We are pleased to share with you the announcement of the first-ever events to be hosted at the RA this Fall in partnership with Curling Canada. The Canadian Curling Trials Direct-Entry Event and Canadian Curling Pre-Trials Direct-Entry Event will run concurrently Sept. 22-26 at the RA’s Curling Centre of Excellence. Click here to read Curling Canada’s announcement.
We are thrilled to be welcoming this pair of important curling events in this first stage of our multi-phase redesign. Curling Canada chose to bring these events to the RA Curling Centre of Excellence despite it being only in the initial stage of redesign because of the advantage athletes gain through valuable experience competing in a stadium setting on a competition-level ice surface.
