Learn to Curl
Have you ever seen curling on TV and thought it might be fun to try it yourself? Here's your chance!
Our club regularly holds Learn to Curls, a 90-minute introduction to the sport of curling and how to play. Absolutely no experience is needed, and we'll provide all of the equipment you need. We recommend dressing in warm, flexible clothing, though, with long pants and close-toed shoes.
Our Curling 101 Learn to Curls cover the following:
Introduction to Curling: We'll discuss the basics of curling, the equipment used, and on-ice safety.
On-Ice Lesson: Our club members will take you onto the ice and teach you the basics of throwing the stones and sweeping. We'll start slow and work our way up to delivering the stone the length of the ice.
Game Play: We'll talk about scoring and how the game is played.
A few of our club members will be with you the entire time and will be ready to answer any questions you might have.
Age requirements for Learn To Curls:
14 or older with a parent on the ice
16 or older with a waiver signed by a parent
18 or older with a self-signed waiver
Kids ages 6-13 can participate in our "Kids Curling" sessions, hosted occasionally alongside our standard Learn to Curls.
We also offer a Curling 201 course, for Curling 101 graduates interested in learning more about gameplay and technique, and occasional "drop-in curling" sessions for club members and potential members to practice informally.
Once you've completed a Learn to Curl at any club, you're eligible to become a member and join one of our weekly leagues! Learn more about how to get more involved in curling after your first Learn To Curl.
