League Information

The Granite Curling Club offers many leagues that cater to a wide range of skill levels and competitive interests. With so many choices, there's sure to be a league that's just right for you! Don't forget that curling is a social activity as well; after each game, teams head upstairs to chat, quench their thirst, and (depending on the league) eat.

Leagues are divided into two types: Manager's Choice (MC) and Skip's Choice (SC). For Manager's Choice leagues, curlers sign up as couples or individuals and the league manager puts them together into balanced teams based on skill levels and experience; for Skip's Choice leagues, curlers form a team and sign up as a team. You may have any ratio of men and women on a team, playing positions in any order, except for the Wednesday Women's, Thursday Men's, Thursday Mixed Doubles, and Sunday Mixed leagues. If you're new to curling, you'll want to start with a Manager's Choice league, such as the Sunday Open league.

In the list below, multiple game times mean you will play at one of the times listed depending on the week. Schedules are available prior to the start of league play, and all leagues have a substitute roster in case you need to miss a game.

If you can’t decide which league is right for you, send an email to the League Coordinator (leagues@curlingseattle.org) and we’ll be glad to help you choose.
