We have one more week before we crown our winter league winners. But that doesn't mean curling is over for the season!

Deadline looming to sign up for spring league

Registration for our spring league is open. 

Spring league will be from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, April 11 to May 16 (with one bye scheduled).

Deadline is March 24.

Volunteer for public learn-to-curl

We will host our last public learn-to-curl event of the season Tuesday, April 4. We expect it to be full and will need all the volunteers we can get from 6:30-9 p.m. You don't need to be an expert curler--we need helpers of all curling ability!

Want to help CRC get dedicated ice?

Cedar Rapids Curling has a wonderful relationship with ImOn Ice Arena and we sincerely look forward to continuing to curl here for years to come. Unfortunately, arena ice that is shared with skating sports has unavoidable impediments to long-term growth, which is why most of the 219 curling clubs in the U.S. play on dedicated ice. 

As CRC explores paths toward dedicated ice, we need your help. We will soon be passing out at league and posting on our member site a handout that includes information you can use when speaking to people outside the club and sport, makes a few asks, and offers ideas for how you can help reach our goal of creating Iowa’s first modern dedicated curling facility.

You also can fill out a voluntary survey that we are using to gather and assess any potential contacts, resources, and skills our member may possess that could help us on our dedicated ice journey. 

Stay tuned for more information!

CRC merchandise now available to buy online

If you're wishing you had a few more Cedar Rapids Curling-branded items in your wardrobe, we have you covered. We have opened a CRC merchandise store within the members-only part of the website. You can find it in the Member Menu under CRC Merch.

The items offered are what we have in our own stock. These are the shirts/socks that you see us selling during Learn-to-Curls and other public events. 

We are NOT shipping at this time. Anything you buy, you must pick up at league or another CRC event. 

Please excuse any hiccups in this process. We are still working out bugs for how to make this easy for everyone involved. If you have any questions, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Cedar Rapids hosting arena funspiel, MCA Arena National Playdowns

Cedar Rapids Curling will host a casual, fun bonspiel with our fellow MCA arena clubs, St. Louis and Des Moines, May 13-14 in Cedar Rapids. This casual spiel will be a great way for new and experienced curlers to meet and play each other.

The fee will be $35/curler. Participants are responsible for food and beverage costs. Pins will be awarded to the winners and runners-up of the four events.

You can sign up as an individual or as a team. 

Questions? Email Kari Kozak at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The deadline to register is April 22.

Register now   

Alongside the funspiel that weekend in Cedar Rapids will be the MCA Arena National Playdowns. The winners -- one women's team and one men's team -- will represent the Midwest Curling Association at the 2023 Arena National Championships in November (dates and location TBA).


  • Non-mixed event: men's and women's teams
  • Players must be a resident of the U.S. as of deadline
  • All team members must be dues-paying, league-playing members of the same MCA club
  • All team members must be USAC members (FYI: if you are a CRC member, you are a USAC member)
  • $100 USA Curling fee + $25 MCA fee per player

The deadline to register is April 15.

We encourage ALL CRC members to consider giving Nationals a try. You don't need to be a really experienced curler. We've had members who had only been curling a year compete in this competition. It's a wonderful way to meet and learn from fellow arena curlers from across the country!
