The 2012 United States Women's Curling Championship took place from February 11 to 18 at the IceWorks Skating Complex in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[1][2] It was held in conjunction with the 2012 United States Men's Curling Championship. The winning team, skipped by Allison Pottinger, will represent the United States at the 2012 Ford World Women's Curling Championship in Lethbridge, Alberta. The first and second placed teams, skipped respectively by Allison Pottinger and Cassandra Potter, earned qualification spots to the 2014 United States Olympic Curling Trials, which will determine the teams that will represent the United States at the 2014 Winter Olympics.[3]

Road to the Nationals[edit]

As with last year, teams qualified for the women's nationals by qualifying automatically through the World Curling Tour Order of Merit or through a challenge round. Four teams qualified via the Order of Merit, while six teams qualified via the challenge round.[4] The challenge round was held in Marshfield, Wisconsin, where the teams that did not qualify directly via the Order of Merit competed for the final six spots in the nationals.
