Our Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza is a fun way to learn about curling. You will spend about an hour learning the basics, then have breakfast, and then play a game with other new curlers and experienced club members to help you along. Advance registration is required, as we have only twelve non-member slots for each Extravaganza and it is not offered every Saturday (it sometimes gets pre-empted by other club events). Registration opens at 8 pm Wednesday evening ten days before the Saturday we play. Please see the Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza page for more details and to register.

Attend one of our Open Houses and impress your friends with your curling knowledge. You will learn the essentials of curling: terminology, delivery, sweeping, and scoring with an opportunity to throw a few stones the length of the ice. This basic instruction lasts about 1 hour and offers a good overview of what curling is all about. Cost is $10 per person. We welcome all individuals including children down to the age of 5. All guests must sign a waiver before heading out onto the ice. These are traditionally held once in October / November and once in February / March. Registration is required
2019-20 Dates: November 16th & February 29th
The most serious approach, but still lots of fun, is our “Learn to Curl” program, a three hour training session. We typically hold these programs twice per season, in October and February.
The program is designed for people who would like to get more than just a taste of the game. The program focuses on more individualized instruction than a drop in session or Open House. We provide an overview of the sport and detailed instruction lasting about 75 minutes before we divide into teams to play a short game If you would like to start to curl on a regular basis, this is the best place to start. Each session is 3 hours and costs $60 payable by PayPal, credit card or check. Dress warmly and wear clean, soft soled shoes or sneakers.
For those under aged 21 who would like to try curling, we do offer drop-in opportunities to our Youth programs held on select Sunday afternoons. The Youth program time depends on the curler's age and ability to throw the stone the full length of the ice sheet. Please visit our Youth Program pages (Middle Rockers | Juniors) for more information.
