Rebecca "Becca" Hamilton (born July 12, 1990) is an American curler from McFarland, Wisconsin. She is a two time national junior champion.


Hamilton's junior career involved participating in five straight national junior championships from 2008 to 2012. She won the event in both 2008 and 2011. In 2008, Hamilton played third for the Nina Spatola junior team which finished with a 1-6 (8th) record at the 2008 World Junior Curling Championships. In 2011, Hamilton skipped the team of Tara Peterson, Karlie Koenig and Sophie Brorson to a 5-5 (5th) record at the 2011 World Junior Curling Championships.

Hamilton has also played in two national championships, in 2010 and 2012. At the 2010 United States Women's Curling Championship, Hamilton skipped a team of Koenig, Jenna Haag and Grace Gabower to a 7-2 round robin finish, in a four-way tie for first. The team would lose in their first playoff game however against Patti Lank. Hamilton's trip to the 2012 United States Women's Curling Championship would be less successful, however. She skipped a team of Peterson, Koenig and Brorson to a 4-5 record and missed the playoffs.

Hamilton's first event on the World Curling Tour was the 2010 Laphroaig Scotch Open. Her best event to date was at the 2012 Molson Cash Spiel where she lost in the final to Krista McCarville.

At the start of the 2013–14 curling season, Nina Spatola joined Hamilton's rink as their skip.
