Quick 'n Easy Training, Give Curling A Try!
We welcome new curlers – come and give curling a try . The Potomac Curling Club offers instruction early Saturday mornings. Please check our Saturday Breakfast League page for more information and dates. After the instruction there is the opportunity to curl with more experienced curlers in the regular league play. We ask non-members that want to curl in the pick-up game for a nominal $20 donation. Please bring warm, loose -fitting clothes and clean flat soled shoes. Sneakers are OK. A hat and gloves make a warm addition. In addition to the instruction, we provide all necessary equipment. If you decide to stay for the game, you'll be teamed up with more experienced curlers that can help you learn the ropes.

Learn-to-Curl Programs
Never curled before? No problem, it's easy to get started. The Potomac Curling Club’s Learn-to-Curl programs are the way to go and recommended for all new members. For our 2010-11 fall session we will be teaching several single three hour sessions designed to build on skills learned during an open house or a drop-in mini lesson. If you have not been to an open house or drop-in session, no problems, we'll be covering the basics too. Certified instructors will help you get up to speed and in the game quickly and safely. All you have to bring is determination, warm clothes (gloves), a good sense of humor, and clean, rubber-soled shoes – we'll provide the rest. Registration is online on the calendar / event reservation page

Learn-to-Curl - The Basics
The Learn-to-Curl program covers safety on ice, how to deliver a stone, sweeping, and some of the terminology used to describe different aspects of the game – such as the "take out," "the draw," and "hurry." The instructors will demonstrate and work one-on-one with each curler reviewing the essentials of the game. You will also learn the rules, scoring, the roles of each player on a curling team, basic strategy, and practice making key shots. We will also emphasize the on- and off-ice etiquette that makes curling a gracious sport.
