"Ready, Set, Curl!"
Meet new friends and become a pro quickly!
Our curling lessons are a lot of fun and a great way to meet new people. There also a quick way to learn to curl well! Past lesson series have produced first year curlers able to compete in national events.
Lesson series are offered most seasons depending on demand. They range in length from 3 to 6 weeks, with classes meeting one night per week for 2 to 3 hours. So far, we've offered beginner and advanced beginner lessons and we hope some day to offer intermediate and advanced. We're also working with local universities to develop a college program.
Classes are taught by expert instructors; we have many US Curling Association Certified Level 1 and 2 instructors in our club, as well as several members with elite curling experience at Olympic Trials, US Nationals, US Mixed Nationals, US Club Nationals and the Canadian Men's Nationals ("The Brier.")
Typical class format
Lesson Levels - Sometimes we refer to lesson levels. These are a general guide as to what the course will cover and who it might be geared towards, but in practical terms, all lessons are tailored to meet the needs and wants of that specific class. Here's a general idea as to how we, at the SFBACC, classify skill levels:
The price for lessons is typically about $20 - $30 per 2 hour session (e.g., $100 for a 4 week series.)

Upcoming lesson series:
Anyone at any skill level can join our leagues, including players just completing a lesson series. Upon request, the league's drawmaster will arrange teams so that newer curlers play with more experienced curlers who coach them as they go. Some leagues also include practice time.
