Alabama's Original Curling Club
Founded in 2018, the Rocket City Curling Club is the first club in Alabama dedicated to the Winter Olympic sport of curling. We currently curl at the Ice Sports Center in Huntsville, AL.
If you've ever wanted to try curling yourself, join us for one of our upcoming Learn To Curls! Our 90-minute classes are fun and informal, and once you've learned the basics, you're ready to play in one of our weekly curling leagues.
New leagues start three to four times a year, and we're always looking for new members! No equipment is necessary—our club has brooms and sliders for members to borrow. Send us an email if you have any questions or if you're looking to learn more.
Our weekly summer leagues started the weekend of May 20—but if you aren't signed up yet, it's not too late to join as an individual!
We're offering three different leagues this season: our 12-week open league for all club members, our 4-week leagues for beginning curlers—and, for the first time, a 6-week social league on Friday nights for curlers of all skill levels looking for a more casual environment.
Watch out for more info on registering teams for our second beginner and social leagues later this summer. If you have any questions or registration issues, send us an email!
WHAT IS CURLING?
If you're reading this, you've probably seen curling on TV—maybe even when Team USA won gold in 2018—and wondered what the heck is going on. There's a bunch of rocks, there's some yelling... and what are those guys with the brooms doing, anyway?
First played in Scotland over 500 years ago, curling is now one of the fastest-growing Olympic sports in the world, particularly in the southern United States. Curling is an opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to come together to compete and socialize, with a focus on mutual respect and good sportsmanship.
We love our sport, and we think you will too. Check out this two-minute video from Curling Canada (or this longer intro from USA Curling) to learn more about the game—then contact us and find out how to join the fun!
2022 Summer League
Registration is now open for our summer leagues, starting May 20 and 22! We're offering three leagues on Fridays and Sundays for curlers of all skill levels—find out how you can take part.
