We are pleased to announce that there has been significant interest in the Rainbow Rockers 2019-2020 curling season, which will start on September 29th, 2019. The result is that we will be expanding from 35 teams to 40 teams!
are still a very limited number of curling spots left to fill the 40
teams, so we encourage interested curlers to complete their registration
form and send to the membership coordinator.

We need to purchase food ahead of time and arrange the bocce teams, so PLEASE RSVP to Jeremy Cheff at [email protected] before Friday, June 14th.

With spring (slowly) arriving, the 2018-2019 curling season has come to an end. This past season saw the league host the National Gay Curling Championships and the annual Over The Rainbow Bonspiel. Both events were a huge success thanks the endless efforts of the volunteers from the league and cheerful participants from across Canada who came to Ottawa this year.
It’s April… and although it may not feel like it, it’s time to wrap up another season of Rainbow Rockers curling. Remaining draws take place Sunday, April 7, Tuesday April 9 (6:00 PM) and Sunday, April 14 (1:00 PM). All Round 3 games must be completed and scores recorded by April 14 at 5:00 PM.
As we’re coming to the end of the current season, get ready for the next season! Registration forms for returning full time members and spares for the 2019-2020 season are now available. Download, complete, and bring to the closing banquet ceremony on April 14th.
The Rainbow Rockers Curling League exists because of the tireless hard work of a committee of volunteers who love to curl and give back to their community.
