Friday League

  • 9:30-11:30PM

The league will run from September 5th through December 12th. There will be no league play the week of Thanksgiving. Our intention through time is to offer league in four 12-week series each year that dovetail with the rest of our instructional programs.  Since we will still be in the summer session of our other programs through the beginning of September, we are offering a 14-week series for the fall curling league in order to avoid a gap in league play, while also aligning the end  of the season with our Fall 12-week class lesson series.

  • $420 per person

    • 14 weeks of round robin play

  • 10% off second league dues if participating in both league nights
  • Discounts on league dues will be offered to members who instruct corporate and learn to curl events
    • Potential instructors must sit with the Curling Director to determine a suitable schedule and amount of events to be worked

Details of the Sport

Details of the game include:

Curling is a team game. Local teams are organized by members as they are for bowling or golf leagues and can be categorized into mens, ladies, couples, juniors, seniors, or family groups. Teams can also be organized for special competitions or groups of any age or skill level. Curlers interested in state, national and world competition can enter many events to sharpen their skills.
Each team has a skip that acts as team captain and strategist. Strategy is a major factor in curling and is as important as shooting skill. Some people call curling “chess on ice”.
Each player shoots or delivers two stones at each end, or inning, alternating with their counterpart on the opposing team. Curling is designed to allow play in both directions. All four team members shoot two stones at each end and sweep for their teammates’ shots. While one player shoots, two sweep as needed. Sweeping polishes the ice so the stone travels farther and vigorous sweeping requires fitness.
The object of shooting is to get the stone, or rock, to come to rest at a predetermined place (a draw or guard) or to move another rock (a takeout or raise). The score is determined after each end of 16 stones. A 12-foot circle, the house, is the scoring area. Stones in the house must be closer to the tee (center) than any opposing stone to score. The maximum score in one end is eight points. Typically, one to three points are scored.
Professional games are 8 or 10 ends, lasting 2 to 2.5 hours.
Curling equipment includes a specially made broom or brush (clubs often furnish brooms for new curlers). Many curlers wear colorful curling sweaters, but any loose fitting, layered clothing can be worn. For the delivery, a “slider” should be worn on the sliding foot to allow a long, smooth-sliding follow through. (Sliders will be provided)
Private Curling events are typically 1.5 hours long and available on weekdays in the early afternoon and weekends.

All pricing includes 1.5 hours of private ice rental, all necessary equipment rental, and instructors on the ice with you for the duration of your event.
