Learn to Curl

U12 (Little Rock) 

The U12 Learn to Curl program will provide under 12 youth with a foundation of the basic skills needed to play the game: balance, delivery, sweeping. Once the program is completed, the curler can register for the U12 Basic to continue developing these skills and to learn new ones.

Junior

Learn to Curl will provide six (6) weeks of basic curling skills instruction: delivery, sweeping, targeting and game play.
After six weeks, the new curler can  register as a Junior member for the remainder of the season. And $40 of the Learn to Curl fee will be credited towards the season membership. Learn to Curl “graduates” will be integrated into the Junior Basic program with two days of curling

Adult

Learn to Curl will provide eight (8) two-hour sessions once a week of basic curling skills instruction including stability and delivery, sweeping, line of delivery, grip and release and game play.

Learn to Curl “graduates” can go on to Learn to Play and/or join a regular league. A Learn to Curl discount of $40 will be applied to a regular league membership.

Learn to Play
