Facility Support Programmes

As part of the World Curling Federation’s commitment to the development of curling and its recognition of the vital importance of places to curl in, it offers a number of programmes to support the development of dedicated curling facilities.

Junior Recruitment Programme

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.

Curling Timing Training

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”.

Curl Distance App

Together with our results service provider, Curlit (, 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.
