Learn to Curl

You’ve seen the sport in the Olympics, you’ve heard about it from someone you know, and you’ve thought, “hey, I wonder if I can do that?” Come find out for yourself! With no experience necessary, come on out to see what the roaring game is all about. Learn how to deliver a stone, and how to sweep it down the ice. Find out what hog lines, hacks, buttons, and houses all have to do with it. Bring your families out and learn together.

Our instructors will give you an overall understanding of what you need to play the game. You’ll learn the basics of throwing, sweeping, and some basic game flow and strategy. By the end of just one session, you can be ready to join our leagues and master the game!

COST: $40 per person

What to Wear

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing that you can lunge in (stretch!), warm socks, and rubber-soled, closed toe shoes. Sneakers work well. We suggest no Converse, Toms, or other low-profile soles—your feet will get cold! Dress in layers—it can be cold on the ice, but you’ll warm up once you start sweeping.

Accessibility

Curling is an accessible sport and we welcome participants who use wheelchairs, and others with limited mobility. Use of arms and hands is required, but we can provide a delivery aid (delivery stick) to release the stone without bending down. Please contact us at info@hollywoodcurling.org in advance if you have questions or to discuss any special accommodations.

Release Forms

All adult participants must sign Hollywood Curling’s adult release form. All minor participants (under 18) must have their parent or guardian sign Hollywood Curling’s minor release form. Any additional guests (photographers, spectators, etc.) must also provide a signed release form before being allowed on the ice. You may download and fill out the release forms in advance, or we will have paper copies available at the event.

Venue and Parking

This class will be held at the L.A. Kings Valley Ice Center. You can tell the front desk that you’re here for curling, or go straight to the second rink in the back of the building. We recommend that you arrive 10 minutes early. Parking can be tight in the lot immediately in front of the rink, but you can usually find parking in the plaza next door (behind the taco joint).
