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.
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
The next step after our Learn to Curl Program Learn to Play is like a mini-league for LTC graduates. Additional instruction will make you more confident on the ice as you participate in league play similar to our regular leagues.
