Curlers Wanted: The University of Victoria Curling Teams

February 13, 2024

Are you ready to take your curling skills to the next level?

Do you dream of representing your university on the ice?

The Vikes want YOU!

As we gear up for the 2024/25 school year, the Vikes is on the lookout for talented curlers to join their Men’s and Women’s teams. They have been competing at the Canada West Championships since 2015, with the Women’s team finishing 1st and 2nd respectively in the past two years.

Competing in the Canada West Championships is just the beginning. UVic will work closely with Curl BC and the Victoria Curling Club to connect the student-led teams with top-notch coaches, ensuring that you receive the training and support you need to succeed.

What can you expect as a member of the UVic Curling Team?

  • Regular participation in local super league play
  • Opportunities to travel and compete in the Canada West Curling Championships
  • The chance to qualify for USports Nationals
  • Support from UVic for fundraising efforts
  • A vibrant community of fellow athletes, coaches, and supporters cheering you on every step of the way

But don’t just take our word for it. Hear from Reid Zingel, Skip of the UVic Men’s Team:

“Representing UVic in curling has been the best decision I made during my time at UVic. It provided me with a goal to strive for. The challenge to become a better curler showed me the value of putting in hard work. I think that the parallels of sport and life provide a great opportunity for personal growth and can be one of the most important lessons one can have in their university career.”

And from Mahra Harris of the Women’s Team:

“Being able to represent my school at CanWest and the USports level has been such a cool experience. It has always been a dream of mine to compete at the national level and curling at UVic has granted me some of my best curling experiences!”
