New Member's Guide

Welcome to the Nanaimo Curling Club!

This is the New Member's Guide, a series of articles that were created to help our new curlers get started with curling at NCC. Curling can feel a bit intimidating at first, but we hope to address some of your questions and concerns here. You also will find that curlers are a very social and welcoming lot and are eager to answer your questions and explain things.

If you feel there is anything missing from this guide or have any feedback, feel free to ask someone at the club or contact our manager at
