This roaring sport originated in Scotland in the early 19th century and has always been a chivalrous game played across the circumpolar world. Teams of four take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones down the ice towards the target (called the house). The complex nature of stone placement and shot selection has led some to refer to curling as "chess on ice." After its absence from AWG in 2016 the precision and intensity of this sport will make it worth watching during the 2018 Games. Curling competition during 2018 Arctic Winter Games include: Junior Male & Junior Female (both born 1999 or later). A team consists of up to eight athletes and two coaches from each participating contingent.
In 2018 the curling events will be held at the Fort Smith Curling Club in the Fort Smith Recreation Community Centre.
