The instructors and members of the Denver Curling Club look forward to meeting you at your
Corporate Learn to Curl Event. Our goal is to expose your company to a fun, informative, and different way to work together as a team. Curling is often referred to as "chess on ice" and we hope we spark your interest enough to experience why this is.
Your event 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 the curling
skills you've been shown. 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 Corporate Learn to Curl event includes the use of Denver Curling 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
Dress in layers for the
cold like you would for an outdoor winter sport. Don't be fooled by
a warm summer day into thinking you won't need warmer clothing during your time
on the ice. 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 may not be necessary. It is a good idea to bring additional layers to wear, especially if you know that 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.
The Ice Ranch has a restaurant upstairs, Santoro's, that opens at 4pm. If you have an event that ends at 3 or 3:30 pm, arrangements can be made to have the restaurant open early for your group. Optionally, CB Potts (subsidiary of RAM Restaurants) are a sponsor of USA Curling, and they would also welcome your business. They are located at C-470 and Broadway, less than 2 minutes from The Ice Ranch.
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.
