LEARN TO CURL FAQ
For additional Learn to Curl questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long does a Learn-to-Curl session last?
The session lasts for 2 hours. You will need to show up about 15 minutes early and are more then welcome to stay afterward and socialize in our warm room.
What will you teach us at a Learn-to-Curl session?
The first component will be an off-ice introduction to the game including the terminology and the equipment. The next component will consist of on-ice instruction where you will learn to sweep and deliver a stone. After you have perfected the delivery and sweeping you will move on to play in a game with other people in the Learn-to-Curl.
Do I need any special equipment?
No. It is recommended that you wear loose fitting clothes and dress in layers. Sweatpants or running pants are typically more comfortable than jeans. The air temperature on the ice is around 42 degrees. You may find that you will get quite warm from sweeping and want to remove a layer of clothes. You do need to bring a clean pair of tennis shoes to wear on the ice. All other equipment will be provided by the club.
Is there a minimum age to participate in a Learn-to-Curl session?
There is no minimum age. If the participant is under 18 years of age then their legal guardian will need to sign a liability release form. The suggested minimum age is 12 but if you have someone that is under that age that is eager to come out and give it a try then we will work with them. We do have a junior program specifically for younger individuals. They will probably find the curling experience more enjoyable if they first learn the sport in one of these programs rather than with a group of adults.
Where are you located?
We are located at 307 North Westhill Blvd, Appleton, WI 54914. (Same street as Woodman's Market)
Are spectators allowed to come and watch?
Absolutely! Bring all your friends on out. The more the merrier. They are more than welcome to come sit in the warmroom and watch a Learn-to-Curl session or even league play.
Why are there no Learn-to-Curl sessions scheduled from April - September?
Curling is a seasonal sport and the club shuts down over the summer to avoid the high energy cost that we would have trying to make ice in 90 degree weather. Come back in the beginning of October and check us out!
