Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza

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 midnight Wednesday morning ten days before the Saturday we play. Please see the Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza page for more details and to register.

“Try Curling” Open House

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. This basic instruction lasts about 1 hour and offers a good overview of what curling is all about. Cost is $10 per person or $20 per family. 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 (if no events are listed, we have no upcoming Try Curling events)

Learn to Curl Programs

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. 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. After you have given it a try, we hope you’ll want to join. As a brand new curler, you can join for one half of a season for less than you might think. To encourage new curlers, you are entitled to a significant membership discount. Please see our Membership Page for more details.
