COMMUNITY EDUCATION LEARN TO CURL – October 10th & 17th 7-9PM
The Learn to Curl sessions are ideal for those who have never tried the sport before, but are curious to learn the basics. All are welcome! Curling is a “lifetime” sport for people of all ages and abilities. We can also accommodate wheelchair curlers and those who may not be as flexible as they once were with “stick” curling. We love for kids to try curling! Because it takes a certain amount of strength to slide the 42 pound granite stones down the ice, kids about 9 years and up are generally able to participate.
What to expect during the sessions. There will be a brief off ice instruction including curling terminology. Once one the ice, instructors will go over the basics of curling including throwing a stone and sweeping. At the end of the session a short game will be played. Participants are urged to wear layered, loose clothing and clean sneakers. All other equipment is provided. Be sure to arrive at 6:45 pm.
The event is open to the public and costs $5. Registration
