The Royal Caledonian Curling Club

National Governing Body for Curling in Scotland


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