2019 AMI Canadian Vision Impaired Curling Championship (CVICC)

The AMI Canadian Vision Impaired Curling Championship is a national curling event held during White Cane Week which is the first week of February every year.  White Cane Week is a week for celebration of ability and sport is a great way to demonstrate it.  This is the CVICC’s 15th year, and promises to be an exciting year.  There are 7 teams participating from 6 different provinces.  The team from Kelowna is back this year as Team Canada to defend their title.

Spectators are welcome.  Can’t make it to the arena?  Keep your eyes on this page for updates as we receive them.
