All indoor Sports Plus Taste of Curling events will take place at Sports Plus, which is located at 10765 Reading Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45241. We will be curling on the Canada Rink.
We ask that you arrive no later than 15 minutes before the start of each event to allow time for proper registration and confirmation that waivers have been completed. (Anyone under the age of 18 will require a parent or guardian to sign the waiver for them).
Taste of Curling provides a sampling in the education and on-ice experience of curling. This event is 30 minutes.
Start times will be staggered in 30 minute intervals from the start of the event until 30 minutes to the end of the event.
Each participant will travel to different CURLING STATIONS to learn a different aspect and skill of the game. This includes on-ice participation and drills.
Each participant will get the opportunity to throw at least one 40 lb granite curling stone down the sheet of ice toward the house, just like an Olympian!
You can request more information by sending an email to LearnToCurl@CincinnatiCurlingClub.com

Common Learn To Curl Questions
Q – Do I need any special equipment?
A – All curling related equipment will be provided by the Cincinnati Curling Club
Q – What should I wear?
A – Curling is played on ice, so dress warmly. It is best to wear loose fitting clothing, and wear layers. Many curlers wear athletic warm-up pants, yoga pants, or other similar sweat pants. While it is OK to wear jeans, jeans tend to be a little too restrictive in movement allowed for most people. Remember that during curling, you will be getting into a lunge position, so make sure that your clothing allows for this. Another key to clothing is to wear layers. Most people tend to get warm after sweeping for a bit, and they will take off a sweatshirt or other layer to they don’t overheat. It is best to wear gloves that will allow basic dexterity.
Q – What shoes should I wear?
A – No Heels, Sandals or open toed shoes are permitted on the ice. It is best to wear normal athletic or running shoes. All shoes must be clean before you will be allowed on the ice. Failure to wear the correct footwear will result in you not being allowed onto the ice.
Q – Do I need to be a member of the Cincinnati Curling Club to come and curl?
A – For the Learn To Curl Clinics and Instructional Leagues that we are running, you do not need to be a member to come out and try curling. If you would like to curl in one of our other leagues, you will need to join the club.
