Curling Events

In-Club Leagues

Highland has a variety of regular curling activities scheduled for your curling enjoyment. There is a league or event for all curlers, whether you are experienced or a beginner.

Get Started Leagues

Our “Get Started” leagues focus on instruction for new curling members, and curlers wishing to improve their skills.

GSL - Level I runs on Tuesday evenings, at 6pm.

Qualified instructors give the participants the tools they need to play the great game of curling.

Instruction is provided from October to December starting with learning the basics of curling. In January, the participants are put into teams and they play actual curling games, with the instructors’ assistance. This helps participants to learn the strategy of the game.

GSL - Level II runs on Tuesday evenings, at 8pm.

Level II is ideal for curlers that have completed GSL Level I or for those that have past curling experience but have taken several years off from the sport and want to brush up on their skills.
Participants are divided into teams and games are played, with guidance from instructors when needed.
