The World Curling Federation is calling for nominations for its Athlete Commission. United States’ Ann Swisshelm, who chairs the commission, and Kelly Scott of Canada are both due to stand down having completed the full four-year membership rotation.

Both Ann and Kelly have been representatives for women’s curling, therefore the new nominees should have competed in the World Women’s Curling Championships or Olympic Winter Games women’s events in the past eight years.

Completed nomination forms must be signed by the nominees Member Association and should be submitted to by close of business (17:00, British Summer Time) on Friday 8 June 2018. The elections will take place shortly after this.

The expectations of any member, who is successfully voted into a position on the Athlete Commission, are:

  • Attendance in and around the European Curling Championships for group meetings (three days).

  • One member will represent the group at the Championships and Rules Commission meetings, normally held in late January.

  • Two members will represent the group at the World Curling Federation Open Meetings held during either the World Women’s or World Men’s Curling Championships.

  • A minimum of three members will represent the group at the World Curling Federation Congress held during September each year.

  • Availability for conference calls as necessary throughout the year to ensure the objectives of the Athlete Commission are being met.

    The World Curling Federation has emailed the election details and nomination form to all athletes they have contact details for. If an athlete has not received this directly and they believe they should have done so having competed at the World Men’s, Women’s, Wheelchairs or Mixed Doubles or the Olympic or Paralympic Winter Games in the last eight years please contact Competitions and Development Officer,

    Please note with changes in the data law and the introduction of the EU General Data Protection (Regulations (GDPR), the World Curling Federation has recently revised its Privacy Policy.
