The Kansas City Curling Club is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 Not-for-Profit Organization, whose main objective is to promote the sport of curling across the greater Kansas City area. Our club coordinates curling activities for people of all ages by offering instruction, training, practice and league play by providing equipment and ice rentals. This foundation gives our curlers the means to become competitive athletes on the regional, national and international stage. Locally, the club hosts an annual Bonspiel Curling Tournament much like most curling clubs do when we travel to them. This event has attracted curlers from all corners of the United States (i.e. Seattle, New York, Texas), as well as several Canadian teams from Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
Having maintained a more than 10 year continuous track record of programs, our current longer-term goal is to build a dedicated curling facility taking our 501(c)3 organization to the next level. This curling facility will allow us to expand curling to 7 days a week as well as expand programs to differing groups and levels of experience of various junior, high-school, university, adult, and senior leagues, among others. This would make our club the only dedicated ice curling facility within a 350 mile radius.
In order to help us achieve our goal of a dedicated curling facility, we would greatly appreciate any financial support to curling in Kansas City you can provide. All donations are tax deductible.
More importantly, we want you to give this sport a try. We hope to see you on the ice!
