Come On Out and Try the Olympic Sport of Curling! Party to follow!
The Charlotte Curling Association hosts regular Learn to Curl Sessions on Fridays at 7:15, about 2 hours and 30 minutes in duration, followed by refreshments and socializing with club members afterwards.
These are fun times, aimed at getting new curlers comfortable on the ice and into a curling game for the last part of the session. A brief off-ice introduction comes first. Then you’re on the ice and curling for 2 hours. The following are the upcoming Learn to Curl dates. Click on any one of them (or all of them!) to register and pay for them up front.
Due to high demand, we require that you register and pay in advance to secure your spot.
Please note: Cancellations must be made 48 hours before the event in order to receive a refund.
Children can curl too! However, curling involves a certain amount of strength, so we can only teach participants who weigh 70 lbs or more.

Fun Facts about Curling:
- Curling, which traces its roots to the 1500s, first became an organized sport in Scotland in the 19th century.
- The stone, or rock, is made of granite and weighs 38 to 44 pounds.
- The stone will tend always curl in one direction or the other as it travels down the ice.
- The players’ feverish sweeping polishes the ice to help the stone travel farther and curl less.
- Curling debuted at the Olympics in 1924 but didn’t return as an official competitive event until the Winter Games of 1998.
- Curling is played worldwide, but is most popular in Canada.
