Free Youth Curling
This is a great introduction to curling for kids ages 6-18. They’ll learn about the rules, etiquette and work on fundamental skills. It’s free and fun, with experienced instructors leading each session.
Learn to Curl!
The name says it all. This is perfect for those who are new to curling and want to get a taste of what it’s all about. It’s not as much a league as it is an intro to curling class. Experienced curlers are on hand to offer instruction and help with rules and etiquette. Players don’t need a team; they can register individually. No equipment is necessary. It’s 6-8 p.m. on Mondays. The cost is $100 for the four-week session, which includes a membership.
This league was new last year but was really popular. As the name implies, this league is for two-person teams, which can be two men, two women or one of each. The league is 5 p.m. on Sundays for seven weeks plus a two-week playdown at the end of the season.
There are two Open Leagues available, starting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and 6 p.m. on Fridays. Sign up as a four-person team, which can be all men, all women or any combination. The leagues attract some competitive teams but are mostly recreational in nature. Most curlers are there to have fun and develop their skills. The Wednesday winter league is full but there are still openings on Fridays.
The ladies take over the club on Thursday nights, starting at 5:30 p.m. Register as four-woman teams. Play can be competitive but most teams are there for fun. There’s room for more teams this winter.
The Men’s League is the largest and most competitive league. It’s guys-only night, and they register as four-man teams. Play starts at 5:30 p.m. The league is full this winter.
For those who want to give curling an occasional try, the club has Open Curling most Saturdays from noon-2 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. for the public, and 2-4 p.m. for members only.
