Academy programs cancelled for 2020/2021

UPDATED November 27, 2020

Please be advised that the Board of Directors for the Camrose Academy of Curling have made the decision to cancel all programming for the 2020/2021 curling season. It was a difficult decision but the health and safety of our athletes is our primary concern. The Board will be reconvening following this curling season to determine next year’s plans and programming.

If you have any questions, please email us at the Rose City Curling Club –

Stay safe and healthy everyone!

Programs postponed until January 2021

Please be advised that the Board of Directors for the Camrose Academy of Curling have made the decision to postpone the programming for the remainder of 2020. It is our hope to start programming early in January 2021 provided the Rose City Curling Club is in operation and there are no other health or facility restrictions in place at that time. Our primary concern is the health and safety of our athletes.

Registration is now open

for both the Technical Training and Student Curling League programs. Please visit the Registration page for more information. Program fees will be determined at a later date and will be prorated accordingly. Further information regarding the January start dates will be provided to all registrants by early December. Please contact the Rose City Curling Club at 780-672-4152 if you have any questions or concerns.

We look forward to seeing you in January.

Curling Season Ends

Rose City Curling Club closure

To the members and parents of the Camrose Academy of Curling Monday Student Curling League:

Please be advised that due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the City of Camrose has made the decision to close the Recreation Centre starting the morning of March 15th and until further notice. This means the curling season is over at the Rose City Curling Club. We would like to thank everyone for participating this year and we hope to see you back in the fall.

Just a reminder: The City of Camrose will be painting the main floor interior including the locker room during the off season, therefore we ask all curlers to remove the locks and contents from your locker as soon as possible. Access to the curling club will only be allowed through the north door and only between the hours of 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday to Friday this week so please stop by to pick up your belongings. If you are not able to pick up your stuff this week, please call the club to talk to Sarah about this. Any locks or contents remaining after April 1st will be removed and placed in the lost and found for next season. We ask that you not stay longer than absolutely necessary when you come for your belongings.

It probably goes without saying that the Year End Pizza Party has also been cancelled. Sorry that the year came to an abrupt end. Hope to see you all back next year! Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
