The Calgary Wheelchair Curling Association is gearing up for another great season of Wheelchair Curling and inviting all who are interested to come out and give it a try.

Since 2005, the Calgary Wheelchair Curling Association has grown to be the largest wheelchair curling league in Canada with over 30 members. Many of the members are new to wheelchair curling and range from 9 to over 60 years of age, with varying forms of mobility or cognitive disabilities.

The League starts October 3, 2009 from 10:30AM to 12:30PM at the Ogden Legion Curling Club 2625 - 78 Ave SE. Calgary and will run most Saturday mornings until March 2010. First time curlers are invited to attend free of charge. Curling sticks and equipment are provided so we just need the curlers.

The Calgary Wheelchair Curling League is also looking for volunteers and sponsors this season as we expect to grow our membership.

For further information on the program details or to be a volunteer or sponsor, please call Jack Smart at 403.201.0041
