The Cincinnati Curling Club was founded in 2012 by four Canadian transplants who missed playing the game they loved as their careers had taken them from Canada down to Cincinnati. At the time it was founded, the club was Cincinnati's first official curling club.
Since that time, the club has grown from 4 official members up to 96, has taught over 1,000 people a Learn to Curl class, hosted many dozen corporate curling outings, and organized adult curling leagues, youth curling leagues and instructional curling leagues.
We have had the opportunity to curl in some fashion locally at the Cincinnati Gardens, Indian Hill Winter Club, Sports Plus, Goggin Ice Center at Miami University, and Fountain Square.
At this point, the club does not have their own dedicated ice, but is curling at the Sports Plus facility in Evendale on 5 sheets of arena ice.

Membership Sign Up using SmartWaiver:
This year CCC will be using SmartWaiver for its member application and waiver. This brings the application and waiver to an online platform. CCC will be able to easily update member data using its MailChimp platform. Participants will receive an electronic copy of their waiver. Allows corporate events, learn to curls, etc. to sign waivers in advance. CCC will be able to easily update participant data after events using MailChimp and make follow up contact, hopefully transitioning them to future membership and/or league play.
