Let's RAISE THE ROOF!

Curling is an important part of sporting and social life in the region, and appeals to a broad demographic.

In our region alone, there are active Mixed, Women's, Men's, Senior and Junior leagues. Curling attracts people from eight to 80, involves First Nations communities, and functions as a fundraising activity for groups such as the Royal Canadian Legion and the Elks. Both our Public and Separate school systems utilize curling facilities during the week, and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are regularly taken up with bonspiels.

In our province the curling rink has historically been the heart of the community. The curling season absorbed our communities and saw us through the long winter. In Canada curling numbers are on the rise, perhaps reflecting its inclusion in the Winter Olympics in 1998. The Greater Battlefords community has the critical mass to make an energy-efficient curling facility thrive, and this sport will become even more popular with the construction of a new rink in a new facility. The synergy created by other sports such as soccer and swimming combined with the provision of new ice sheets creates the ideal conditions for the continued growth of this popular winter sport.

The Greater Battlefords region has hosted provincial competitions almost every year since 1997, including World Curling Tour events. In 2008, we hosted the Provincial Women's competition, and in 2011 we will be hosting the Provincial Men's competition. Our new cultural and recreation complex will include six sheets of ice with all associated support spaces and spectator seating.

With the potential expansion of spectator seating in the curling facility the only limit to what the new centre can host is our own community imagination!
