A Learn to Curl clinic is a great way for anyone, age 8 to adult, to get first exposure to the sport. Each lesson is a 2-hour introduction session that teaches you the basics of curling, including physical play, rules, and strategy. We strive for a low instructor-to-student ratio with an emphasis on active participation. Within minutes, you are throwing rocks and sweeping, and you finish off the session playing a mini game. Learn To Curl sessions are also a great way for small groups to enjoy a new activity at a great price, and guests can all curl together as a group.
A Learn to Curl clinic includes:15-20 minutes of classroom instruction to go over terminology, ice safety, and rules
1-1/2 hours of ice time, including a two- or three-end game (as many as time allows)
Instruction on how to deliver the stone, how to sweep, and basic strategy
CLEAN SHOES ARE REQUIRED!!
Please bring a clean pair of athletic shoes that are not worn from the parking lot into the building. Grains of sand or pebbles from shoes can affect the path of the stone. Avoid shoes with eyelets or metal on top.
If your feet tend to get cold, consider wearing two pairs of socks. You'll be standing on ice!!
The Club will supply any other equipment necessary.
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.
