The Oakland Ice Center in partnership with the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is now offering curling lessons for children age 12 - 18 (younger children may be accepted with prior approval). Instruction includes the basics of the sport (how to deliver a stone and sweep), the rules, and etiquette. Participants will have time to practice and play in weekly games. Please bring a pair of clean sneakers, loose fitting, warm clothing and gloves - it can get cold on the ice!
