Event description

Description

Learn the sport of curling at one of our Learn to Curl classes! These sessions are a great way to get ready for our upcoming leagues.

In this 2 1/2-hour session, you will receive formal instruction about the sport, including stone delivery, sweeping, and basic strategy. You will also have the opportunity to play part of a game alongside your classmates.

League Night!

This "Learn to Curl" session takes place next to league matches. What does this mean? You'll get to meet fellow curlers who have joined our leagues, and see what it's like to join our club. Cool, huh? Come out "broomstacking" with us after! That's the time-honored tradition of sitting down for a beverage and/or bite with your teammates and opponents after the game. Winners traditionally buy the first round (and the defeated team gets the second one!). All ages are welcome to join us.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There's no minimum age, but age 12 and up is generally best. You must be able to get enough "push" to slide a 42-pound granite stone on ice. Some of our curlers have been younger, though. Our youngest league player is 11, and we've had event participants slightly younger than that.

Can people come watch?

Yes - spectators are welcome.

We have a group of 5, but only 4 spots are left! Can we squeeze in one more?

We can usually keep 5 people together as a "team." So, take the four spots, and let us know - we can send you further instructions to register and pay for the fifth person.

What should I wear?

You will be on the ice for 2 hours. Make sure you wear warm, comfortable clothing that allows you to lunge. Dressing in layers is a good option, as you will start out cold and have periods of time when you will sweat (good sweeping warms you right up). Thin gloves may be helpful - sometimes the brooms get cold. Also, make sure your footwear is thick, flat, gripping sneaker-type shoes – no boots, keds, or uneven soles. It should be as flat as possible - nothing with a heel. Do not wear scarves or clothes that may drag on the ice. You may want to bring a knee pad, such as those for volleyball. No equipment is necessary, but if there is protective equipment that you choose to bring, you are welcome to do so. Some of our curlers choose to wear helmets, for example.

No additional equipment is necessary, but if there is additional protective equipment that you choose to wear, you are welcome to do so.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is free parking on-site. Long Island Rail Road service is also nearby, though you will need to take a cab. If you have transportation concerns, let us know and we'll do our best to provide suggestions.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
