The Royal Caledonian Curling Club

The Royal Caledonian Curling Club

National Governing Body for Curling in Scotland

Royal Club Academy

Through the alignment of the World Class Curling Olympic Performance Programme & British Curling/Royal Caledonian Curling Club Performance Programme we aim to invest programme support in athletes/teams who are fully committed to a Development Programme with the prospect and ultimate outcome of being able to medal at World level.

The Royal Club Academy is a Scottish Development Programme.

Inclusion in the programme will be seen as an “investment decision” for future potential.  The key question that will be asked when making any selection decision:-

 Is there a realistic potential of this athlete being

World Class Medal standard?
