Japan Curling Association

The Japan Curling Association (JCA) was founded in 1984 and became a member of the World Curling Federation in 1985.

At present there are over 2,500 registered curlers in Japan and more than 11 dedicated curling facilities where curling is played.

Four of them are all-season facilities: Advics Tokoro Curling Hall in Kitami (6 sheets); Dogin Curling Stadium in Sapporo (5 sheets); Ice Park in Karuizawa (6 sheets) and Curlplex Obihiro in Hokkaido (4 sheets).

There are 21 member associations of JCA from northern part of the country to southwestern Japan. One of them is the Japan Wheelchair Curling Association.

Thanks to the excitement of the Olympic Games, curling has been very popular, and a lot of new people are trying the sport for the first time.

To tend to the surge of new curlers, and to scout future athletes, the promotional committee of JCA has fostered over 300 registered curling instructors in the last 20 years.

The World Women’s Curling Championship will be held in Sapporo in March, 2015, while the Karuizawa International Championships will join in the WCT tour in 2014.
