Learn to Curl

How Can I Try Curling?

The Fort Wayne Curling Club hosts 2 or more public Learn to Curl sessions each month during Curling season (which typically runs from late September through Early April).  During and immediately after the Olympics, the club runs Learn to Curl sessions on a nightly basis due to increased demand.

What is a Learn to Curl session?

A Learn to Curl session starts with 30-45 minutes of instruction from our volunteer members followed by 60-90 minutes of gameplay among the attendees with our members assisting as coaches.

What are the details?

  • Cost is $20 per person - Payment can be made online via Credit Card, PayPal or Venmo at time of registration or on the day of the event via cash, check or charge.  Checks should be made out to the "Fort Wayne Curling Club".
    • A portion of the Learn to Curl fee provides participants with a single day membership to the club.
  • No previous curling experience is required; the club provides all training
  • No special equipment is required.  The club provides all necessary equipment including grippers, brooms and protective headgear.
  • All participants will need to sign a liability waiver, which is available at the club, or at the links below. For individuals under 18, their parents must fill out and sign the Minor Liability Waiver.

When are the Learn to Curl sessions?

  • Dates vary but you can find the sessions here.

Who can participate?

Just about anybody!  We have curlers from ages 10-80 including people in wheelchairs.  So, just about anybody can participate in the sport in one way or another.  No special skills are required.  We find that children below age 10 lack the strength to get the stone down the ice and the focus to pay attention during instruction and the game.  We will not turn away kids younger than 10, we just ask that you use your discretion as to whether your child has the strength and focus to participate.

What to bring?

  • Wear clean sneakers.  Please clean your sneakers before coming and optimally wear some other shoes into the club and change your sneakers there.  Dirt on the ice from your shoes can ruin the playing surface.
  • Dress in loose fitting clothing.  Jeans are not recommended.  Sweatpants, track pants, golf pants or yoga pants (for the ladies) are a much better choice.
  • Dress in layers. Mittens, gloves and hats might also be a good thing to bring  The ice room is 40 degrees but you will warm up as you play.
