Denver Curling was originally established in 1965, and Denver curlers enjoyed the benefits of dedicated ice near I-70 and Quebec. In its recent past, Denver Curling Club was home to three women's US National Champion teams and three World Championship teams. We sent curlers to US Junior Nationals; we were represented well in many bonspiels throughout the country.
The DCC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to teaching, developing, promoting and encouraging the spirit of curling; to develop youth and adult programs that lead to local, national, and international competitions.
When those doors shut because of a dwindling curling community and resources, Denver lost a unique pastime. In 2007, as a result of the overwhelming interest in curling during the 2006 Turin, Italy Winter Olympics, Denver Curling decided to resurrect itself. What started with 36 dedicated curlers has now blossomed into a curling community with over 300 active curlers. We curl on rented ice, two nights a week during the fall/winter/spring months. We have Rookie and Open league programs, offer many Learn To Curl opportunities, corporate events, and hold an annual bonspiel (tournament) in November.
The DCC continues to develop programs and raise awareness by offering opportunities for youth, the disabled, adult, senior, and local businesses to learn the game of curling and refine their skills of leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship and communication. With the evolved group of leadership the DCC has developed a diverse membership demographic, but it has reached capacity due to the limited availability of rental ice time. The awareness for the Olympic sport of curling continues to grow and the DCC continues to improve its approach to sparking interest and sustaining membership, but it needs its own facility to meet the growing interest
