Whether you are interested in becoming a qualified umpire, are umpires looking for updates, a curler or coach wishing to learn more about the rules and this aspect of the game, this section will cater for all.

Historically, curling has been a game of camaraderie where established rules were written but the “spirit of the game” was the enforcing agent. For many years curling was played without umpires and it was rare to see an official on the ice at any level of curling except for the occasional measuring of stones.

However, as the game has developed the role of the umpire has become an important part of many competitions and championships, not solely to apply the rules but also in the organisation and running of those events.
