Curling: What is it?
(Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up for class)
You’ve seen it at the Winter Olympics – and now you can play in Atlanta!
Curling is one of the fastest growing sports in the US due to its inclusion in the Winter Olympics (and how crazy fun it is to play). This 2 minute video explains it all:
Ready to try your hand at this insanely fun sport? Our 2.5 hour Learn to Curl class will explain how the game works and we will guide you step-by-step through the basic skills for delivering a stone and sweeping it into the house. Once you are comfortable with delivering a stone and sweeping, you get to play a game consisting of several “ends.” By the end of class, you will be fully prepared to play in the league and pickup games.
All age groups, physical abilities and experience levels are welcome. One of the great things about curling is that the delivery position is irrelevant. Players can release the stone upright using a delivery stick (no bending required) or launching from the hack. This is a sport that relies on finesse rather than strength or speed – which makes it a true level playing field.
Curling is a fun, inclusive and social sport, so feel free to sign up by yourself or bring some friends. There will be plenty of opportunities to take pictures and make your Facebook friends jealous.
What do I need?
Nothing. All equipment is provided. You do not need to know how to skate (there’s no skating at all.)
What should I wear?
It can be chilly in the arena. Please dress in layers. In fall, a hoodie or sweater is recommended. In winter you may want something warmer including a hat and gloves. For pants, you want to wear something that you can comfortably squat down in (probably NOT skinny jeans.) Sneakers or similar footwear is recommended.
The lobby is a warm room with tables, benches and big windows overlooking the ice. Non-participating spectators are welcome and do not need to register. Check-in begins at 9:05 PM. Off-ice instruction begins at 9:15 PM, so please arrive on time!
Where we play: Center Ice Arena at top end 285 and Roswell RD: 5750 Roswell RD, Atlanta, GA 30342
