Learn to Curl
Come find out and see if curling is for you!
Our "Learn to Curl" classes consists of a volunteer club member showing you the fundamentals regarding sliding a stone and sweeping. It is our aim to have you play an end at the conclusion of the 90 minute lesson, all while acclimating yourself to the ice. While most people sign up as an individual, curling is great when done together with friends, family and coworkers alike. We can handle up to 10 people per curling sheet.
Please note that Learn to Curl sessions are offered when the ice is available during our regular league play on Saturday late afternoons and Sunday mornings. The area to the left shows the currently available Learn to Curl offerings.
The Kansas City Curling Club reserves the right to cancel or postpone any Learn to Curl event at any time. Learn to Curl events that have less than 4 people registered will be postponed. The Club will provide refunds to those that are unable to attend a future class. Cancelations by participants with less than 48 hours notice, will not receive refunds.
Just like any other sport, injuries can happen in curling. This is why we want you to take safety seriously, and we encourage you to read all of the following information below before you get started.
What to Bring
Before participating, all persons will be required to sign a waiver. You can print, sign, and bring the waiver with you found below, or fill one out at the rink.
Soft rubber soled shoes, such as athletic shoes, that have grip on a smooth surface are an essential part to minimize falling. Please try not to wear hard soled shoes, cowboy boots, snow boots, or any shoe that leaves the ice feeling slippery.
Layered Comfortable Clothing
You would want to wear clothing that you can move around in comfortably. Curling can also feel cold when you first start but, after sweeping it can get quite hot, so you would want the option to shead layers.
Our club has a few helmets should you want the additional safety, however you are welcome to bring your own. While most people are able to avoid hitting ones head on the ice, it has happened and a helmet may give you another layer of protection your first time out.
We have brooms and sliders within our club for your use.
