Intro-to-Curling Clinics

Ever wanted to try curling? This is your chance! Throughout the year the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club offers the opportunity to learn to curl, no experience required! Curling Clinics are a comprehensive introduction to the Olympic sport of curling. You will learn the basics of the game, a bit of curling history, and technique fundamentals. During the second half of the session we also hold mini-games as space and time permit. Curling clinics are also a great chance for our newer members to get a technique refresher! (And, don't forget, the sessions are always followed by some post-curling socializing at the bar!)

Anyone of any age or physical ability can curl. Don't worry if you can't manage the traditional lunge; we teach stick curling, too. All of our activities are wheelchair accessible and deaf participants can be accommodated too!

Come by yourself or bring your friends and family. We love to meet new people!

What should you bring?
We recommend wearing loose fitting pants (sweats or track pants), warm clothes and sneakers. Lots of folks enjoy having a hat and gloves, as well. Jeans are strongly discouraged.

What will you do?
- Get an overview of the game and on-ice safety
- Learn delivery basics (how to throw the stone)
- Learn sweeping
- Play a mini-game (if time and space permit)

Can I give a learn-to-curl session as a gift?
A curling experience makes a great gift for friends and family! Visit our gift certificate page and we'll set you up with a gift certificate you can present to the recipient. Give them a gift unlike any other! We'll make sure they have a blast.

Bring the whole family out March 10th! We'll have special "little rocks" and a shortened playing field set up for the little ones. Kids 6 and under are free with adult registration! Learn about our junior/youth program and how curling is a sport the whole family can play together.

Adults: $35, Juniors (21 and under): $15

Due to strong interest in these events and our desire to provide the best possible experience, advanced sign-up is required. Purchases are transferable but non-refundable.

Clinics are held primarily in Oakland at Oakland Ice Center, with occasional clinics at Solar4America Ice - Fremont (formerly Sharks Ice).
