Intro to Curling Clinics
Ever wanted to try curling? This is your chance! Throughout the year the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club and Sharks Ice offer many low-cost curling clinics, usually at the start of each season. Curling Clinics are a comprehensive introduction to the Olympic sport of curling. You will learn the basics of the game, a bit of curling history, and technique fundamentals. During the second half of the session we also hold mini-games as space and time permit. Curling clinics are also a great chance for our newer members to get a technique refresher! (And, don't forget, the sessions are always followed by some post-curling socializing at the bar!)
Anyone of any age or physical ability can curl. Don't worry if you can't manage the traditional lunge and we teach stick curling, too. All of our activities are wheelchair accessible and a few of our curlers are fluent in ASL.
Come by yourself or bring your friends and family. We love to meet new people!

"Thanks. I wanted to expose the kids to something new and I thought curling would be fun. I never imagined they would be treated so well. The environment was great and your personal attention was so key to them having as much fun as they did. We talked about it all the way home and then told mom all about it way past bedtime." - Mike
"Thanks. I had a lot of fun curling. I want to go back again¦. At first I did not know a thing about curling. I thought it was just about throwing a big heavy rock but now that I know the right way. I think it is really fun, but next time I want to wear something warm because my knee was very, very cold." - Grace, 7
