We are curling the Sports Plus facility in Evendale, OH.

We ask that you arrive no later than 15 minutes before the start of each class to allow time for proper registration and waivers to be filled out.  (Anyone under the age of 18 will require a parent or guardian to sign the waiver for them)

Training begins with some off ice classroom training, where you will have the rules and lingo of curling explained to you.  You may also see a video demonstration, showing what proper technique looks like.

Afterwards, you will be taken onto the ice, and you will perform various exercises and drills to get you trained on how to curl.

Finally you will get to play a mini-game of curling.

In total, the class last about 2 hours from the time the off ice training begins to the time that the on ice activities are over.

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. The typical temperature on the ice is in the mid 40’s.  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.

Q – If I love curling after my first time, how can I curl more?
A – We have all kinds of options for people to join our club.  Anyone is welcome to become a member and join our club.  We offer multiple curling leagues, ranging from leagues for the highly competitive to instructional leagues intended to help beginners learn the game better.
