If you have never curled before, and that includes most people, we have opportunities for you to get your feet wet.
Open House = “Try Curling”
Attend one of our Open Houses and impress your friends with your curling knowledge. You will learn the essentials of curling: terminology, delivery, sweeping, and scoring. This basic instruction lasts about 1 hour and offers a good overview of what curling is all about. Cost is $10 per person or $20 per family. All guests must sign a waiver before heading out onto the ice.
We offer two Open Houses during the year. Online signups are required.
Learn to Curl Programs: The most serious approach, but still lots of fun, is our “Learn to Curl” program, a three hour training session. We hold these programs twice per season, in October and February.
The Potomac Curling Club is pleased to offer two Learn to Curl sessions during the Fall Season. The program is designed for people who would like to get more than just a taste of the game. The program focuses on more individualized instruction than a drop in session or Open House. If you would like to start to curl on a regular basis, this is the best place to start. Each session is 3 hours and costs $50 payable by PayPal, credit card or check.
After you have given it a try, we hope you’ll want to join. As a brand new curler, you can join for one half of a season for less than you might think. To encourage new curlers, you are entitled to a significant membership discount. Please see our Membership Page for more details.
Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza
Our Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza is a fun way to learn about curling. You will spend about an hour learning the basics, then have breakfast, and then play a game with other new curlers and experienced club members to help you along. Advance registration is required, as we have only twelve non-member slots for each Extravaganza and it is not offered every Saturday (it sometimes gets pre-empted by other club events). Registration opens at midnight Wednesday morning ten days before the Saturday we play. Please see the Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza page for more details and to register.
