Here's a little introduction, brought to you by Curling Canada.: CURLING - A 2 Minute Guide

Yes. We offer two methods of delivery of the rock: the slide delivery and the stick delivery. The slide delivery is the method most seen and involves a sliding lunge. The stick delivery is an alternate method in which players deliver rocks from an upright position. It was created to allow less mobile curlers the opportunity to play. Players may choose the stick delivery method for a variety of reasons including: back or knee issues, loss of mobility, and general health concerns.
A curling team consists of 4 players. Each group determines if they want to form teams in advance or informally at the club. Most events consist of self-formed teams and casual games.
Longer events may choose to establish a mini-tournament style with competitive play. Work with your Event Coordinator to establish the format of play and how you would like to structure your event. Some events plan for short games within a simple bracket and offer prizes for the participants.
No. All of our private events are supervised by our instructors. This is for your own safety, as well as maintaining condition of ice and equipment. Only DCC members can reserve sheets during practice ice sessions.
The Warm Room is available for use during your social hour. Additional time can be reserved for longer meetings. It is an open area, not a closed room. The facility has seating for 64 and A/V equipment available. Your Event Coordinator can assist with any specific needs.
Yes. We welcome spectators to our club and your event. There is viewing available from the Warm Room. There is no charge for guests and spectators that are watching only.
Childcare is not provided by the curling club, but children are welcome in the Warm Room. Children must be supervised by the private group.
