Learn To Curl
|Denver Curling holds many Learn To Curl (L2C) during each curling season (September - April). We recommend a two week instructional (two sessions) but often one session is enough time to bring you back to curl with us again.
L2C will begin
with a brief off ice overview of very basic curling rules and strategy.
Next, you will receive personal on-ice instruction and practice real
skills. You will learn how slide, deliver a stone, and sweep. After everyone
has gotten the basic idea, we will break you into teams and participate in real game
A Learn to Curl event includes the use of the Denver Curling Club curling equipment. We
provide brooms, sliders and delivery stabilizers for you to use. All you need in terms
of "equipment" is warm comfortable clothing and a good pair of clean, flat
bottomed shoes. Here's some detail on what works best in terms of clothes and
Participants need to wear clean rubber soled sneakers. Clean sneakers means that
the treads in the bottoms of your shoes should not be full of mud or grease.
Keep in mind that you will be standing on ice, so a thick pair of socks to help
keep your feet warm is a good idea. Don't wear cowboy boots or leather
soled dress shoes as they will be very slippery and your feet will likely be
Standing on the ice for more than an hour can end with you being
very uncomfortable if you don't wear appropriate clothing. Thin gloves can help keep you warm, and a hat is
good to have with you, but not necessary. It is a good idea to bring additional layers to wear, especially if your body is
easily chilled in cold weather. Stretchy or loose fitting pants rather than jeans are best for
crouching down in the hack to deliver a stone.
We're happy to have the
opportunity to show you how much fun curling can be. We'll do our best to make
your time with us informative and fun.
