Learn To Curl

October 2022 Learn to Curl events have been added!

Do you want to try curling? Whether it’s checking an item off of your bucket list or fulfilling your dreams of becoming a Olympic curler, the Pittsburgh Curling Club can help! No prior experience is required.

Our curling classes are run by experienced members of the club who can provide you with a great introduction to the sport.

A typical two hour class consists of:

  • 10 minutes of off-ice instruction
  • followed by approximately 45-60 minutes of on-ice instruction
  • an hour or so of instructed game play. 
  • Broomstacking, socializing after the game.

If you have any questions, email learn2curl@pittsburghcurlingclub.com.

Curlers with cranky knees, sore backs, other mobility issues can enjoy the greatest game on ice using the stick, a delivery device that allows a player to play without using a traditional slide delivery. Let us know if it may be difficult to do a traditional slide delivery, and we can help get you all set. Check out this video on stick curling.

The Pittsburgh Curling Club also has Wheelchair Curling.

– You can jump right in and become a regular member which allows you to join leagues or come out to pick-up.
– If you want to take things a little slower, we are offering Olympic Membership packages that provide additional instruction.

Check out our membership page for more information.

Nothing – We have rubber grippers that you can put on the bottom of your shoes and brooms for you to use.

You should dress in warm, comfortable clothes – track pants or sweatpants work best. You want to wear layers that could be removed, when you are sweeping, you will get warm quickly.  If you typically get cold easily, you might want to have additional layers, a hat and/or gloves.  On-ice temperature is usually around 35 – 40°F.

Please wear clean athletic rubber soled shoes such as tennis shoes. We prefer that you bring your shoes and change them after entering the building, in an effort to reduce the amount of outside dirt that makes it onto the ice.

In most cases this is not a problem. Please send email to registration@pittsburghcurlingclub.com with your request, and we will do our best to accommodate.
