LEARN TO CURL FAQs

What to wear:

Dress in layers.  It always feels cold when you start, (the arena temperature averages 45-50 degrees), so dress as you might for outside weather (i.e., gloves, hat, thick socks), but keep in mind that once you get moving into the active parts of the lesson/game, you may feel quite warm so layers are recommended. 

Masks are optional:  In accordance with the State of Nevada's current Mask Mandate (and as recommended by the CDC), if you have been fully vaccinated, mask wearing is optional and at your discretion.

What will the Learn-to-Curl (LTC) lesson include:

  • 15-20 minutes of off-ice instruction reviewing a terminology, ice safety, rules and a brief history of this exciting game. 

  • 60 minutes of on-ice instruction that includes how to throw a stone, how to sweep, how to score, and some basic game strategy.

  • 30-45 minutes of game play so you can utilize the skills you've just acquired and have a friendly competition with the other participants. 

Age and/or Health Restrictions:

Anyone age 12 and up can learn to curl.  (Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.)

 

Anyone with physical limitations in regards to bending, squatting or lunging will be able to deliver the stones using an alternative delivery device called a "stick."  Also, sweeping is not mandatory if an individual is unable to walk down the ice sheet while slightly bent over. We will provide complete instruction for this adaptive form of play. 

Equipment needed:

Aside from athletic (rubber soled) shoes, just bring yourself and your energy!  CurlVegas supplies all of the equipment necessary for the game of curling (stones, brooms, sliders, stabilizers).
