If you’ve been captivated by curling during the Olympics, watched with friends and commented, “I could do that!” Well, you’re right – you can! Come give curling a try at Rock Creek Curling – we have a few different ways to experience and learn the sport, just in time for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

INTRO TO CURLING COURSES

Now that you’ve tried curling and want to continue your curling adventure, an Intro to Curling course is a great next step. Call it “Curling 101.”

This course is a two-hour weekly session featuring instruction from the Rock Creek Curling team and gameplay that helps you build skills, learn the basics of the game, and develop strategy. This fall, courses include six weeks of instruction followed by two weeks of gameplay. Included in this course’s fee are rental curling shoes and club broom. We recommend one or two sessions of the Intro to Curling course before moving onto our full season leagues.

Membership to Rock Creek Curling is not required for an Intro to Curling course, but you can participate in this course as a member and take advantage of our membership benefits.

OPEN HOUSE EVENTS

At Rock Creek Curling, our open houses and social events are designed for you to try curling. Bring your friends and family to learn while having fun on and off the ice.

Our USA Curling certified instructors will guide you through a brief off-ice overview of the basics before taking you into the ice hall for your curling session.

On the ice you will have the opportunity to:

  • Practice the basics of stone delivery
  • Try your hand at sweeping stones towards their target
  • Play a one-end game of curling against fellow participants

All on-ice equipment will be provided by Rock Creek Curling, including brooms, curling footwear, and delivery stabilizers for use when delivering your stones.

What to wear:

  • Warm, comfortable, flexible clothing that will allow you to move on the ice.
  • Bring clean, rubber-soled shoes to the rink with you for on-ice use. Do not wear them into the building to help keep the dirt from making its way onto the ice.
  • Thin gloves and a hat are recommended.
  • Helmets required for children 13 and under.

When your on-ice session is complete head upstairs to our lounge area for refreshments and social time with other curlers.
