Academy is a Scottish Development Programme supported by The Royal Caledonian Curling Club.

We aim to invest programme support in athletes/teams who are fully committed to a Development Programme with the prospect and ultimate outcome of being able to medal at World level.

Inclusion in the programme will be seen as an “investment decision” for future potential.  The key question that will be asked when making any selection decision:-

 Is there a realistic potential of this athlete being World Class Medal standard?

The RCCC intends to build a strong pathway which delivers and aligns with the World Class Programme and which identifies and develops athletes.
