Learn to Curl Events

The Belfast Curling Club offers Learn to Curl events prior to each half of its season, in late October, then again in early January. These two-hour sessions give participants a brief overview of how the game is played, on-ice instruction in the basics of stone delivery and sweeping, then the chance to jump in a game (with further guidance and coaching). Learn to Curls are a great way to get a taste of this highly social, FUN, and unique indoor winter sport. 

For those who wind up desiring more than a taste, and who are interested in joining weekly league play, Learn to Curls are scheduled so that you may become a member in time to attend a skills clinic and sign up for leagues.

What to expect: Curling is a blast! Unravelling the mysteries of the sport’s mental and physical aspects, the sound of a stone traveling down the ice, the camaraderie inherent in the sport—ALL are addicting! The physical act of throwing a stone is unlike anything you’ve probably ever done before, so sometimes muscles that haven’t been used in a while are awakened. Adaptive equipment is available for those with mobility challenges. Participants must sign a BCC Release of Liability form (in the case of children, by their parent/guardian).

What to wear: Wear loose comfortable clothing, dress in layers, and have gloves and a hat available (you’re in an icehouse...but depending how much you need to sweep, you can work up a sweat!) Bring a pair of clean-soled sneakers OTHER than what you wear to the event. Sand, salt, or other debris will damage the ice and impair stone delivery.

The cost for a Learn to Curl is $40 per person; should you become a member following the event, that $40 will be deducted from your membership dues. Pre-payment is necessary to reserve a spot. Space is limited! Please send a check made out to Belfast Curling Club to Steve McLaughlin, 32 Lovejoy Pond Rd, Wayne, ME 04284
