Curling Ice

Golden Bears and Pandas

Building on a tradition of athletic excellence, curling is the newest varsity sport at the University of Alberta. The inclusion of curling as a varsity sport coincides with the establishment of the CIS/CCA Curling Championships, and creates tremendous opportunities for student-athletes.

Golden Bears & Pandas Curling brings together outstanding coaching, a well-balanced schedule, and world-class facilities. These elements give us the opportunity to become the premier university curling program in the country, and we would like you to share in our success!
