Approximately half of all curling clubs in the United States sponsor programs specifically geared toward youth, with numerous clubs in the Midwest hosting varsity level high school curling programs. USA Curling encourages the participation of young people in the sport through camps, competition, and development of tools that can be used by coaches and instructors.
More information about these programs can be found within the links on this page. In addition, details on safety initiatives geared toward youth athletes can be found in the USA Curling SafeSport Handbook and Youth/Junior Coaching certification requirements are located in the Sport Education Certifications and Training section of the website.
