Traveler’s Choice named official luggage provider for USA Curling

(STEVENS POINT, Wis.) – USA Curling announced today that Traveler’s Choice, an industry leader in quality luggage and travel goods, has been named the association’s official luggage provider. After exceeding expectations at the Olympics nearly a year ago, the sport of curling is growing rapidly, increasing time on the road for the national curlers.


“In today’s highly-competitive curling environment, USA’s athletes and coaches are spending a third or more of each year traveling for events, training camps, and so on,” said Rick Patzke, chief executive officer of USA Curling. “The lightweight, high-quality products provided by Traveler’s Choice are a perfect example of paying attention to some of the little things that ultimately contribute toward success in the overall pursuit of high performance. One less travel worry means more attention focused on other things, and for that we are very thankful to Travelers’s Choice.”

Members of USA Curling’s national team program have already received their luggage sets in preparation for a busy season traveling to and from curling competitions. The three-year partnership is an important relationship in helping the U.S. curling team ease the stress of travel.

“We are thrilled to be the official luggage provider for the USA Curling team for the next three years,” said Roger Yang, chief executive officer of Traveler’s Choice. “Our goal is to elevate the USA Curling team’s traveling experience through smart, functional design and high-quality features that meet sky-high standards.”
