Ever wanted to try curling? This is your chance! Throughout the year the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club and Sharks Ice offer many low-cost curling clinics, usually at the start of each season. 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 a few of our curlers are fluent in ASL.
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)
