Some may think that the majority of winter sports in Canada would be too rugged for Canadian women. Contrary to this, they enjoy these activities as much as the men do. One such sport where the women are making a name for themselves is curling. There are national championships that the ladies participate in. There was a merger between Curl Canada, which was the men’s league and the Ladies Curling Association. This has been a great partnership and has done a lot for building this sport to where it has become very popular not only for the men but also the women.

This is the way they get through the long winter months. Many of the Canadian athletes who have gone on to become professionals have done so because they grew up participating in the long list of winter sports that Canada has to offer.
