Learn to Curl

Please check back in September for Learn to Curl dates and times!

With the Winter Olympics a part of recent history and the unbelievable gold medal won by the USA Men’s Curling Team, you may be super interested in finding out more about the sport. Unfortunately, will be no more Learn to Curl classes offered this year. If you do want to learn more about the game and watch some excellent live curling, plan to attend the 2018 Cherry Bombspiel at Centre I.C.E. from April 20-22.

What is Learn to Curl? USA Curling Certified Instructors will take you through the basics of delivery (throwing the stone), sweeping, safety information, strategy, and etiquette. Curling is a sport that is appropriate for most ages and athletic abilities; those with difficulty crouching can learn standing delivery (also known as stick curling).  Classes run about two hours; Class size is limited to 8 students per sheet to maximize individual attention and safety.  Learn to Curl class or prior experience curling is required to join a league.  Learn to Curl class attendees will be ready to join a Beginner League (3-weeks) or normal League (8-12 weeks) upon completion.

Any person who requests to cancel a Learn to Curl that occurs more than 48 hours prior to the class will be offered a chance to reschedule to another class or have their money refunded. Any request within 48 hours of the class will be given the opportunity to reschedule for another date.
