Learn to Curl

Learn2Curl!

A Learn2Curl is a great way for anyone, age 12 and up, to get your first exposure to the Olympic sport of curling. Each lesson is approximately 2 hours in length and is designed to introduce people to the basics of curling. Participants will take part in physical game play, sweeping of the stone, and learn some of the rules and strategy used in curling. Anyone age 12 and above can Learn to Curl. So don't worry if you can't manage the traditional slide delivery due to physical challenges; we will teach you how to deliver the stone using an alternative delivery called the "stick" method.

A Learn2Curl session includes:

  • 20 minutes of classroom instruction to go over terminology, ice safety, and rules.
  • Approximately 1.5 hours of ice time.
  • Instruction on how to deliver the stone, how to sweep, and basic strategy.
  • A two- or three-end game (more if time allows).

Clothing:

  • Dress in layers. The arena temperature is about 45-50 degrees. If you normally wear a hat outside, you'll probably want to wear one while curling as well.
  • Clothing should allow freedom of movement. You need to be able to squat and lunge (blue jeans are not recommended since your movement is restricted).
  • Lightweight gloves keep your hands warm while still allowing you to feel the stone.
  • You'll be standing on ice for two hours so rubber soled shoes (tennis shoes) are the best option for comfort on the ice. Please note: Please carry in clean rubber soled shoes. Dirt is bad for curling ice

 

Equipment:

  • All equipment (grippers, brooms, stabilizers, sticks, etc.) will be provided by the club.
