A curling team is properly called a "rink," although the word "team" is used more often in everyday speech. On a related note, the ice surface that curling is played on is called a "sheet," not a rink.

In Canada, the "professional" curling league is called the World Curling Tour. The website for the tour is, and you can find the names of the top curling teams in Canada (teams are named according to the last name of the team's skip). In the US, there isn't really a professional tour like there is in Canada, and there isn't nearly the level of sponsorship that there is in Canada. So, it's hard to say if there are any US teams that qualify as "professionals" in the sense that they make a living curling. But, there are a handful of teams that do travel around the country playing in most of the biggest events, and are always in the hunt for national championships and the olympic trials. Some of these are Pete Fenson, Craig Brown, John Shuster, Craig Disher, and Randy Ferby. You can find more at
