Learn to Curl
Our Learn to Curl clinics are perfect for absolute beginners excited to try the Olympic sport of curling. Our crack instructors are so amazing, you will know enough to sign up for a league after attending a single session. With the start of the next league always just around the corner, you can go from newbie to league contender lickity-split! What should I expect? Hollywood Curling schedules a Learn to Curl sessions through out the year. At a Learn to Curl, we devote the entire night to the introduction and instruction of curling. A Learn to Curl is ideal for those who have never tried the sport before, but are curious to learn the basics. This is the perfect opportunity to try it out in a pressure free environment. We start with an ice safety meeting prior to stepping on the ice. You’ll spend about an hour or so on the ice, learning about delivery, sweeping and the finer points of the game. What kind of equipment do I need? Hollywood Curling provides all the necessary equipment for this session. Simply wear loose fitting pants (jeans are not recommended), and a sweatshirt. You should dress in layers - it can be chilly on the ice, but you heat up quickly once you start playing and sweeping. Bring clean, flat-soled, close toed, comfortable shoes - Tennis shoes or sneakers work well - and warm socks. (Toms, Converse and Vans are not recommended, as your toes will be very cold). When will I be good enough to play in a league? After your very first lesson! Once you learn the basics, the best way to get better is to continue to play. Whether by clinics or joining our short leagues, just getting on the ice and throwing stones will make you better. Of course, if you take advantage of our Learn to Curl sessions, before, it can only help. Plus, the more you play, the more you’ll get to know other members; form a team you’ll enjoy playing with the entire league.
A native Angeleno passionate about curling. I have been curling at the Hollywood Curling club since it formed in 2008. Since then, I have taught hundreds of people how to curl, from everyday folks trying to check an item off their bucket list to the writers of the Simpsons, and participants in our celebrity curling match. I have played at national and international competitions, and while I'm not Olympic caliber, all the Hollywood Curling instructors and I can show you a great time with your friends and family. Hollywood Curling is a non-profit organization dedicated to growing the sport of curling in Los Angeles. We run Learn to Curl events, leagues, and tournaments all year long.
