Messages From Our President
Welcome to our new Acton Curling Club website!
We welcome all prospective, new and current members to our website! We hope you will visit our site from time to time to become familiar with our curling club and learn about the various curling leagues we offer, our learn to curl programs, bonspiels and when we will be hosting OCA competitive events at the Acton Curling Club! We also have opportunities for both members and non-members to rent our ice and lounge area to host your own event, curling bonspiel, and/or corporate or charity event!
Acton Curling Club has been an active curling club with members from the Town of Acton, Georgetown and surrounding towns and rural areas since 1962. The operation and management of the Acton Curling over the past years has been by a volunteer Board of Directors elected each year from the general membership. We are very proud of our long standing history of being a volunteer managed curling club! One of the very few positions we proudly employ is a full time Ice Technician who takes a great deal of pride and care to provide our curlers with quality and dependable curling ice for their enjoyment. We also employ paid bartenders to serve members and guests their chosen beverage to relax with after a great game of curling while they enjoy some social time with other curling friends in our lounge.
We are also extremely proud to have a long history offering home cooked meals direct from our kitchen prepared by volunteer members. We provide these scrumptious meals during in house bonspiels and while hosting outside curling events. It is worth the drive to Acton for our home cooked meals!
We are always progressing forward with new ideas, and currently have undertaken plans for a future renovation. We are in the midst of planning to modernize our curling club lounge and lower level areas. We are following the province’s legislated mandate to ensure accessibility to persons with disabilities and to modernize our space for the long term enjoyment of our current membership and our community.
At the Acton Curling Club, we offer many opportunities for members of all ages to participate in many various leagues. We offer a youth curling league, a very active and competitive men’s league, a women’s league, Wednesday and Thursday mixed social leagues, Friday night mixed competitive league and an active senior curling day league. We are very proud to offer for our third year a Special Olympics league held late Sunday afternoons for our Special Olympics Athletes. We are a very active, progressive and vibrant club offering many curling programs seven days a week!
Learn to Curl Programs
We also provide a seven-week Learn to Curl program inviting potential new members to learn the basic skills of curling. Upon graduation, we welcome our new Learn to Curl Graduates an opportunity to join our current leagues. This program is taught by well qualified Level ll curling trainers.
We also offer local schools a learn to curl school program. During the winter months our curling club welcomes many elementary school students from our community an opportunity to learn the sport of curling as part of their physical education curriculum. We have volunteer members train these young students the fun game of curling!
The Acton Curling Club is a strictly member owned and managed facility. Our members work very hard throughout the year to ensure your experience at our club is exceptional! We invite you to come to our club and experience what we have to offer! You will find great leagues, learn to curl programs, both fun and competitive spiels and a great opportunity to meet and socialize with many new and eventual life time friends. Thank you for taking your time to become familiar with the Acton Curling Club through our new website. We look very forward to meeting you soon at the club! “Good Curling & Hurry Hard”!
President, Acton Curling Club
