About this Event

Like millions worldwide, you were captivated. The first time you saw curling on TV, you had so many questions. What’s sweeping for? How do they glide on the ice? Could I do that? The short answer is “yes, you can!” 

Try Curling is designed for people who have never curled before. In this 90-minute session, you will learn everything you need to know to play and appreciate the Olympic sport of curling: 

  • Rules and scoring

  • Sliding and delivering the stone 

  • Sweeping - why we do it, how it’s done

  • Basic strategy 

  • Curling etiquette and culture

Following instruction, we will play a mini-game so you can test your skills on this ice!

Complimentary beer and water is available after your session.

What will you need to bring?

  • Clothes with a full range of motion. We advise against jeans. Also, victorian hoop-skirts. Those won’t help either.
  • Layers. Lakeside rink is covered but semi-exposed. Even if it’s cold out, you will be engaging in athletic activity, so you’ll want the option to remove a layer.
  • Wear athletic shoes. If you can curl in high heels, you should be the instructor.
  • A COVID-19 appropriate face mask (no scarves, neck warmers, bandanas, etc.) BLCC has a limited number of (non-medical) cloth facemasks availabe if needed.
  • Otherwise, we provide all the curling equipment and a room to store your bags while you’re on the ice. 

LOCATION: LeFrak Center at Lakeside, Prospect Park, 171 East Dr, Brooklyn NY 11225. Take the Q train to Parkside Av. or otherwise find your way to the Parkside and Ocean Avenue entrance to Prospect Park, enter the park and walk up the hill. 

COVID-19 Guidelines: Brooklyn Lakeside Curling Club is committed to conducting a safe curling experience and has developed an extensive set of safety guidelines for both gameplay on the ice, as well as setup, breakdown and socializing off the ice. ALL CURLERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO FOLLOW THE BLCC COVID-19 GUIDELINES IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 2020-2021 SEASON. Please make sure you review the guidelines on our site before registering and before your Try Curling class.

All curlers will be required to sign our Declaration of Compliance with the BLCC Covid-19 Player Safety Guidelines along with the standard BLCC Participant Release and Lakeside Release before your class. Failure to adhere to the guidelines may result in a player being asked to leave the Try Curling class without refund. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us.

By registering for a Try Curling class you agree to abide by the BLCC COVID-19 Player Safety Guidelines. You also agree to receive emails from us regarding club news.

REFUNDS & COVID-19: Because of the uncertain nature of curling during the pandemic, we may be subject to cancelling your Try Curling class if there is an outbreak within Brooklyn Lakeside Curling Club or at the Lakeside facility, or due to changing state & local government mandates or restrictions. In the event of a shutdown of the curling club by a mandate issued by the federal, state, or local government, BLCC will provide a refund.

WEATHER OR FACILITY CANCELLATION: On rare occasions we have to reschedule or cancel due to weather or facility issues. If this happens, we will attempt to reschedule you. Please check your email on the day of the event to make sure we are still curling. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to reschedule you. If that is the case, you will be refunded.
