Introduction to Curling
Submitted By SF Bay Area Curling Club
Curling is not just for hair; it happens on the ice too! Want to know what it is and how you can be a curler? Visit a local arena for a lesson and find out. First time curlers and those just curious about this sport are welcome to watch, learn and participate.
The Beginner series covers everything a brand-new curler needs to know to get started with curling, including basic delivery, basic sweeping, and the rules of the game. If you've never curled before or have been to a learn-to-curl clinic, this series is for you.
