Officials

Officials are very important for the successful staging of competitive and championship events.

Each year, Curl BC organizes Level 1 and Level 2 officiating courses at the sites of some regional and most provincial championships. Officiating courses are usually offered anywhere from two months to just prior to the championship.

For requests to host an officiating course click here. Primary contact for courses is: Kimberly Dennis.

Courses can be requested by a host committee based on the officiating requirements presented by the curling association in charge of the event, the availability of trained officials in the community, and the needs of the committee.

Officials interested in proceeding past Level 2 can obtain the criteria and procedures from the Curl BC Officiating Coordinator.
