They say that change brings opportunity...
For the 2018-'19 season, Curling Alberta has implemented a number of revisions to its policies for competition aimed to increase participation, highlight developmental opportunities, and promote fairness. We encourage you to read the updated Competitor’s Guide (and appendices) and the notice of Competitive Structure Changes and FAQ to become familiar with the changes.
