Ever wanted to try curling? Yep, that crazy Olympic sport in which players throw granite rocks across ice, sweep like crazy, and yell "HARD" at each other! All ages and physical abilities can play. We give you all the equipment and personal certified instruction you need to play a game.

4/7 -- Youth & Families Learn-to-Curl -- Parents, students, and families are encouraged to play either with or against each other! All ages welcome, though it helps if you weigh more than the 42lb. curling stone.
4/14 -- Teachers & Educators Learn-to-Curl -- All educators are invited to bring families and friends to a clinic especially geared toward sharing the potential of curling in your classrooms. Our curlers are physicists, engineers, teachers and other educators who are even willing to visit your classroom with an Olympic medalist and hands-on instruction for how science can be fun!
4/21 -- Youth only! Learn-to-Curl -- A chance to let loose and have fun, and do something your parents can't. We're not letting them on the ice! Perhaps something unique for your next job or college application.
4/28 -- Lesson Series Begins -- The six-week lesson series includes instruction, full games, meeting an Olympic medalist, and rink-side tutorial at our annual tournament. Launches Saturday, April 28 3-5pm. Registration required: http://bayareacurling.com/register/eb-lessonsThough the upcoming lesson series is intended for ages 12-22ish, with enough instructors and space, we hope to accommodate adults as well.
