Stay Active And Involved In The Community
Even though we have been delivering the curling program for people who are vision impaired for many years throughout various clubs in the city. We want to say a special thank you to the Thistle Curling club!. We are celebrating five years at our home club at the Thistle, 280 Burnell St in Winnipeg.
The Thistle is a great place to call home because of the welcoming and friendly environment. Great job to the staff and volunteers. You are Awesome!
VIRN’s Vision Impaired Curling (VI Curling) program continues to offer grassroots development, recreational and competitive curling.
VIRN remains committed to ensuring that there are coaches and volunteers on hand to help people wanting to learn to curl or continue to curl regardless of whether or not you are losing your vision or have been vision impaired all your life. It is important to stay active and be involved in the community.
VI Curling involves friends and families, because inclusion is a very important aspect of sport. Many of the people who have taken and who continue to take part in VIRN’s Vi Curling program have gone on to curl alongside curlers who make up the multitude of leagues throughout the province.
In addition to providing coaching VIRN is giving VI Curlers opportunities to play against teams of varying abilities. Teams from other provinces and countries will be contacted to spread VI Curling and to make as many opportunities as possible available for everyone who enjoys the sport.

The long awaited curlingforlife.com website has arrived. This website gives information about what CurlManitoba is striving to achieve by way of growing and developing our sport and supporting our Junior curlers in Manitoba with the interest built from this fund.
In partnership with the Winnipeg Foundation, CurlManitoba has started to take donations. The goal is $1,000,000. If every registered curler in Manitoba alone donates $40, CurlManitoba will have reached its goal. $1,000,000 affords CurlManitoba $15,000 a year in interest to donate to scholarships, develop programs for non curlers and keep our sport alive and healthy.
Every donation counts. Please consider to give generously.
