Message from the President

Donna K. Pearson


Greetings.  As the 68th President of the USWCA, I want to thank the USWCA Members for not only joining, but also for driving the collaborative and innovative transitions that are occurring in our organization.  It is my privilege to assist such insightful and motivated women as we engage others and their clubs across the nation in the sport of curling.

As a non-profit organization, the USWCA legacy inspires us to continue creating opportunities that further our mission.  Through innovative communication, wise leadership, current technologies, and insightful governance, the USWCA in promoting curling collaboratively creates a sustainable future.

In our organization, your service makes the difference and is greatly appreciated.  I thank you for giving of your time and talents.

Good curling.

About Us

The United States Women's Curling Association

The Heart of Curling!

Membership in the United States Women's Curling Association has evolved in three ways over its 69-year history. The Central/Wisconsin region is where the USWCA was founded in 1947. Of those five clubs, Appleton, Wauwatosa and Exmoor are still faithful members of the USWCA.

The majority of our member clubs joined the USWCA when the women of those clubs organized their own leagues because no curling existed for them. Most of our Grand National and Central clubs fall under this category.

Many of our clubs in the Minnesota/ Western Regions also are USWCA members as a result of women curlers banding together to create their own special curling experiences. Examples of these are the Arden Hills Cairn Lassies and the St. Paul Bonnie Spielers in Minnesota, the Fairbanks Golden Heart Ladies in Alaska and the Grafton Heathers in North Dakota.

The second evolution in women's curling begun when curlers of all abilities in clubs large and small just wanted to come together in friendship and the USWCA offered not only its National Bonspiels and the United States Women's Championship, but also intra-club events and International Tours. Still, most were members of organized women's curling within their own club. The advent of Olympic Curling did change some inner-club women's organizations, however, the USWCA continued to prosper and most clubs maintained their membership in the USWCA, enjoying its many benefits.

The Mission of the United States Women's Curling Association is: To develop, nurture and promote the sport of curling among today's women and all youth. Our positioning statement "The Heart of Curling" supports that Mission.

Presently, the USWCA is welcoming the newest curling clubs across the land with women members from all walks of life who want to enjoy the sport in different ways. Some are women who have recently taken up the sport in established curling clubs that are already members of the USWCA. A growing number are new curlers in newly organized clubs.

Our history is impressive and we are proud of it. After over 65 years, membership in the United States Women's Curling Association remains the "The Heart of Curling!"
