About the VCC

The Vancouver Curling Club is located at Hillcrest Centre in the facility that hosted the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games curling competitions. With eight sheets of ice in a modern, bright and accessible building, the VCC has about 1,400 members who participate in over 20 leagues. 

Mission Statement:

The Vancouver Curling Club is a community facility that welcomes the public for curling and social activities.

Vision Statement:

The Vancouver Curling Club will ensure its long-term viability by growing its membership, building active and diverse partnerships and by providing an enjoyable curling experience.

Leagues and Membership:

Aside from the novice, junior and high school leagues and programs, all VCC leagues are run by volunteer league reps. These leagues recruit members and pay fees to use the Vancouver Curling Club's ice facilities. For information or to join a particular league please contact the league rep associated with the league of interest. League list can be found here.
