We are a 6-sheet club located in the SunGro Centre in Beausejour, Manitoba. Our club includes the Icebreaker Lounge which features a bar with views of all the sheets as well as monitors with overhead views of the far end. There is also a lower viewing area that provides ice-level views.
We have leagues for men, ladies, and mixed teams as well as an after-school program for kids in grades 4 to 8 and drop-in recreational curling on Tuesday mornings for those who just want to have some fun. We are also the host facility for the Curling Academy program run by École Edward Schreyer School for kids in grades 9 to 11.
