About this event

It’s a Mira-Curl! The Des Moines Curling Club is Offering Lessons.

It’s sweeping the nation, it’s the hottest thing on ice, it’s your best shot at being an Olympian, and it’s way harder than it looks. The Des Moines Curling Club is offering a 4-week skills development course for beginners and new curlers (ages 16 and up with 0-2 years-ish of experience).

Over the course of 4 lessons, you can expect to learn the basic rules of curling, proper technique, strategy, and etiquette of the game. Don’t worry about equipment—we’ve got you covered. Just wear loose, comfortable, warm clothes and clean sneakers. 

The league will be held on Friday evenings at 7pm.
