Come on out and try the Olympic sport of curling!
The Charlotte Curling Association hosts a regular schedule of Learn to Curl sessions aimed at getting new curlers comfortable on the ice and into a curling game! A brief off-ice introduction comes first, and then you're on the ice and curling for an hour and a half. Sweeping, sliding, scoring - you'll learn it all!
For 10 more reasons why you should try curling, check out this video by Jamie Sinclair, a member of the Charlotte Curling Association as well as USA Curling's High Performance Program for Olympic hopefuls:
If you would like to register a group of more than 8 people, please use the information on our Private Events page to get in touch.
Our Learn to Curl sessions for the 2016-2017 season start in late September and run through April 2017. You may register now for the date of your choice using the menu at the bottom of the page.
*Please note the minimum age to participate in one of our Learn to Curls is 16 years old (with parent participation). If you are younger than 16, please contact the League Coordinators for Little Rockers (ages 5 - 9) or Juniors (ages 10-17) about scheduling a Learn to Curl during those regularly scheduled league times.
What to Wear
To be comfortable while you're curling, we recommend wearing loose fitting pants (with a belt if necessary) and 2 or 3 layers of warm clothing along with clean athletic shoes and warm socks. We also recommend a warm hat and gloves.
Curling is truly a sport as you'll see, so we don't recommend wearing bulky or restrictive clothes like tight jeans.
We provide all the curling equipment, including a curling broom and slider.
Curling, like any sport, comes with some risk. The biggest is the risk of a fall. While falls rarely result in serious injury there are some who choose to wear helmets or other protective headgear to mitigate the risk of a concussion. If you want to wear a helmet or other protective headgear you’re welcome to do so.
