Sioux Falls to host U.S. Olympic curling team trials

The U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Men’s and Women’s Curling, as well as the U.S. Paralympic Team Trials, are coming to Sioux Falls in November 2025.

The Sioux Falls Sports Authority made the official announcement, along with USA Curling CEO Dean Gemmell, at a press conference in May. The Trials will be held at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center November 7-16, 2025 and will feature practice rounds, round-robin play and a final playoff. The winners will go on to represent Team USA at the 2026 Milano-Cortina Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“The people of Sioux Falls have a proven track record of turning out for major sporting events and entertainment, and we’re thrilled to bring an Olympic Trials here,” said Thomas Lee, president of the Sioux Falls Sports Authority. “We know people will love the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center, but we also can’t wait to show visitors from around the country everything else our city has to offer.”

“The city of Sioux Falls will be a great partner as we promote these Olympic Trials, and we are confident the setting will produce a first-class experience for competitors and fans alike,” said Gemmell. “We will also work closely with the members of the Sioux Falls Curling Club to not only deliver a great event but help fuel their drive towards a dedicated ice facility.”

Curling interest has significantly grown in Sioux Falls over the last decade with the establishment of the Sioux Falls Curling Club. The Sioux Falls Curling Club promotes and introduces the sport to the greater Sioux Falls area.

“We are elated to see our city selected to host this prestigious event,” said Dustin Hansen, president of Sioux Falls Curling. “This will showcase the growing interest in curling within our community and provide an incredible opportunity to inspire the next generation of curlers. We’re eager to welcome athletes, fans, and enthusiasts alike to experience the excitement of curling in Sioux Falls.”

Ticket information for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Men’s and Women’s Curling, and the U.S. Paralympic Team Trials, will be announced later. For more information and updates, visit the USA Curling or Sioux Falls Sports Authority websites.
