The curling season at the Brockville Country Club runs from late in September to early April each year.

The BCC maintains the most current in curling technology with its Jet Ice, ice cleaning and nipping techniques. The Club also has a full service food and beverage curling lounge overlooking the curling rink. Players and their guests are always welcome to come and watch the curling.
Various curling leagues are provided to accommodate the curling and social requirements of the young and not so young; novice, intermediate to expert curler. See "Curling Leagues" tab for more details.
LITTLE ROCKS PROGRAM
Little Rocks is offered Sunday afternoons. Little Rocks use a special plastic rock that weighs 16-18 pounds, enabling the younger juniors to throw the rock the entire length of the ice. Instruction on how to slide, sweep, and deliver the smaller curling rocks is provided. Team play is held and they even have a Tim Horton's Bonspiel at the end of January each year.
Junior Curling is held on Sunday afternoons right after the Little Rocks. Little Rock curlers that reach the age of 13 can move into this program and continue playing regularly. Volunteer coordinators are appointed to the various Junior Programs and instruction is readily offered throughout the season.
MIXED CURLING PROGRAM
Mixed Curling is the most active section at the Brockville Country Club. Two separate leagues are offered on Wednesday and Friday evenings. The Friday League is open to both members and non-members and is a great league for new curlers to learn about the great sport of curling.
Coffee Club curling involves a season-long, fun-filled member competition and gathering of good friends. Often informal 'Friendly' competitions are organized with other Clubs.
Curling is a game built on good sportsmanship. That is why players call rules infractions on themselves and generally aim to have fun and enjoy the competition. There are a number of rules associated with the game of curling. These rules can be found on the bulletin boards as well as in the curling lounge area.
PLAY SMART – PLAY SAFE
The Curling Council reminds that all curlers should practice safety on the ice at all times. The Club STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that all curlers wear their sliding sole only for the delivery of the stone and that a gripper be worn over the slider at all other times. Not only will this increase your stability and safety on the ice, but it will also help you become a more effective sweeper.Also please note that your curling rocks belong on your sheet of ice at all times. Control runaway rocks that result from take-out shots. When collecting rocks after an end, keep them under control and be careful not to hit someone with a rock when sliding them to the back of the house.
The Brockville Country Club has hosted many events over the years including the Ontario Provincial Junior Championships and the Ontario Senior Winter Games. Our Club has also had many of our members participate in events around the world. The Brockville County Club is the proud winner of the Governor Generals award, winning it an impressive 7 times in a 10 year span. Our BCC ladies team comprised of Karen Mahon, Cindy Dagleish, Colleen Quinn and Annie Allan recently won the 2014/2015 Best Western Challenge.
And almost weekly, BCC rinks representing the Club head out to other clubs far and wide for Bonspiels, often returning with some of the “gold”. We are proud of our members who travel and play competitively, representing our Club so well.
Can’t commit to a league but still would like to play…
