The sport of curling has seen a high rate of growth in recent years, with each Olympic cycle attracting new countries to the sport. Creating and running a Junior Recruitment Programme for your curling club or National Association allows you to take advantage of that interest and build sustainable growth, attracting new curlers to your club and ensuring you have curlers for the future.
With curling enjoying its status as one of the fastest growing Winter Olympic Sports, the World Curling Federation and Curling Canada have worked together to produce indepth written and video resources to aid new athletes in Curling.

These videos are designed to help with the instruction of volunteers who wish to become timekeepers. It is assumed the volunteers have a basic knowledge of the game. If they do not, then they should first receive some instruction on how the game is played, and the terms used. It is recommended that the instructor first explains the basic idea of “Thinking Time”.
Together with our results service provider, Curlit (www.curlit.com), we have developed a new Last Stone Draw measurement app that calculates the real distance from the centre of the house to the centre of the stone using the official formula from the World Curling Federation. Curl Distance is free to download on iOS, Android and Windows devices from the links below.
The World Curling Federation (WCF) Olympic Celebration Tour - Road to the Olympics, is a series of instructional tours with curling Olympians intended to attract interest and promote curling within WCF Member Associations (MAs). The Tour began in September 2013.
Available to download below is a comprehensive reference manual and additional documents which are intended to provide important information and advice for the Local Organising Committees who will host WCF Curling Events.
The Curling Equipment Programme (CEP) was designed to assist Member Associations by providing them with a specified amount of curling equipment for distribution at one of their organised camps or clinics. We believe that supplying quality equipment for the new curler and providing Intermediate and Advanced equipment for those respective skill levels will help these curlers improve their game.
