The league consists of eight teams from Sparwood, Fernie, Elkford, and the Crowsnest Pass, battling it out on the ice every Monday night at the Sparwood Curling Club. The Super League attracts the top curlers in the area from men’s, women’s, junior’s, and senior’s teams, and gives players the chance to prepare for playdowns, with the ultimate goal of having a teams represent B.C. at the national level.

The Sparwood Curling Club is also gearing up to start another season with several leagues, including men’s, women’s, mixed, and junior’s, competing throughout the week.
