The Anchorage Curling Club is a non-profit 50(c)(7) social athletic club established in 1954 to promote curling as a recreational winter sport. The club facility is a two-sheet building built in 1964 and is located at 711 E. Loop Road in Anchorage’s Government Hill area. The club is run entirely by volunteers who love the sport and love sharing their passion for curling with others.
The Anchorage Curling Club is fundraising to make repairs to a failed ice cooling system. Without ice, the club volunteers are unable to conduct educational programs targeted to the general public (Learn to Curls) and youth (Junior Curling Program), which teach participants about the benefits of curling and increase skills that allow interested curlers to compete in the state of Alaska, nationally and internationally. During the 2013-2014 season, volunteers provided public and private Learn to Curl programs to over 800 community members.
