Event description

Description

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.

  • 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.

Cancellations: Full refunds will be given if we cancel due to weather. If the weather looks iffy, check your email and our Twitter feed.
