Clothing should allow freedom of movement. You need to be able to squat and lunge (blue jeans are not recommended since your movement is restricted).
Lightweight gloves keep your hands warm while still allowing you to feel the stone.
Please bring a pair of clean athletic shoes with soft rubber soles for maximum grip.
Avoid shoes with metal on top.
If your feet tend to get cold, consider wearing two pairs of socks.
The Club will supply any other equipment necessary.

The Learn to Curl clinics are ideal for those who have never tried the sport before, but are curious to learn the basics. 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 8 years and up are generally able to participate.
