Interested in bringing curling to your school?
We're also welcoming partnerships with local schools, organizations, and youth groups. We can host your group on a Friday night or Saturday afternoon, or help arrange another time. Our instructors are physicists, engineers and teachers eager to co-develop curricula to suit STEM learning and other local youth program needs. Email email@example.com for details.
Scholarships & Donations: Can't afford full-priced tickets? Or can you help fund a student who otherwise can't afford to curl? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information—and thank you!
Top 5 Reasons Educators Dig Curling
- Sportsmanship & integrity: in a "gentleman's game," curlers are their own referees and compliment opponents on a good shot.
- Interdisciplinary tie-ins: a rare opportunity to observe physics & geometry in action.
- Athletic acumen: sweeping & delivering require precision and work underdeveloped muscle groups.
- Focus: off-ice issues are left off the ice; players focus only on their team and the next shot.
- Community: Curlers of all ages set up the ice together, and share a drink (hot chocolate!) after each game—winner buys, so everyone wins.
Top 5 Reasons Teens Dig Curling
- Meeting other teens. 'Nuff said.
- Geek sport! High-level strategy; often called "chess on ice."
- It's something different.
- It's as casual or competitive as each group wants it to be. Groups support and challenge each other.
