About the MCA
The Midwest Curling Association (originally the Illinois Curling Association) was founded in 1945 with the goal of organizing clubs in the midwest to participate in the wonderful sport of curling. Currently there are 9 clubs that make up part of the Midwest Curling Association. Our plan is to have more clubs join our association and help grow their player base.
