Canadian Curling Association

The primary area of administration and the most financially consuming of the Canadian Curling Association's (CCA) responsibilities are championships.

On an annual basis, the CCA sanctions and conducts eight national curling championship events. Approximately 15,000 competitive curlers from all provinces and territories enter play at the curling club level with the hopes of becoming one of the Canadian Champions, crowned annually.

The CCA also provides a broad array of programs and services to its Member Associations (MAs). The philosophy of the Association is to develop resources and services nationally and deliver them provincially/territorially.

Partnership opportunities are continually being developed by the CCA with other national, regional and provincial program/service providers or funding agencies. These partnerships are sought to increase the affordability of quality programming and provision of services.

These centers increase the ability and effectiveness of the sport to deliver programs and services across the sport’s full spectrum of operation. This ranges from the community-level end users (athletes, volunteers, club executive/boards) to the high performance end users (athletes, coaches and ice technicians who participate at the national, international and Olympic levels of the sport of curling).

Another active division of the CCA is development. It primarily involves a series of programs aimed at retaining curlers and developing programs and materials to recruit new ones.

It is through the development programs that direct contact is maintained with approximately 1,050 affiliated curling clubs, 14 provincial/territorial associations, 12 affiliate member and regional development centers and over 1 million Canadians who play the sport each year.
