About Us

The Toronto Curling Association (TCA) is a volunteer organization dedicated to building the health of the sport of curling in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) for our generation and the next. Our Mission Statement is to ensure that curling clubs prosper and grow across the GTA.

There are 26 curling facilities in and around Toronto that are members of the TCA. A Board of Directors runs the association and each member club is represented each year at the TCA’s annual general meeting by one or two member club reps.
