How is curling played?
For a great explanation on curling visit this web site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curling
Or for the best two minute video explaining curling visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXHh_wadqPwWhat do I need to curl?
In order to curl there is no required equipment that you must buy. The club will provide all the basic materials you need to get started, a slider, a broom and a stabilizer. As you get more experienced you might decide to purchase a pair of curling shoes and your own curling broom.
What should I wear to curl?
The ice house is approx. 40 degrees so proper clothing is important. You should wear loose fitting clothing in layers. Think shirt, sweatshirt, sweatpants etc. Try not to get to bulky since that will interfere with getting into the delivery position. You want to have layers so you can remove/add clothing as you need it. Footwear is the most important element. You should wear sneakers; no boots, dress shoes, Uggs, flip flops, heals, deck shoes etc. The sneakers must be clean and if you will be curling multiple times, (in a league or in the Junior program) they should be dedicated for curling only, not used for anything else.
How will I learn the sport?
The first couple of weeks will be focused on teaching you the basics of the sport. After that you will learn how everyone else learns, by playing games. You will be placed on a team with experienced and other nonexperienced curlers. You will then compete against other teams with experienced and non experienced players for the rest of the season. This is the most enjoyable way to learn the sport.
