Learn to Curl
Thank you for your interest!
We love the sport and community of curling. We hope to see you soon. There are a variety of ways you can get curling!
Do you have an open house?
The higher profile of curling in the recent Winter Olympics, including the remarkable gold medal victory of the USA men's team in 2018, has stimulated lots of local interest in our sport, as did the USCA Curling Nationals held in the Philadelphia area for the first time in February 2012 and again in 2014. We do not have plans to hold an open house. If you are interested in visiting the club, please contact us. If you would like to try curling before our next public event, please consider contacting:
Our curling class is a great introduction to the sport, and a wonderful opportunity to try a Winter Olympic event! No prior experience is required. Participants must be at least 18 years of age. Classes include on-ice instruction and some game play. Please bring a second pair of clean sneakers, loose clothing (e.g. track pants), a jacket or sweater, and possibly some gloves. The temperature of the playing area is around 40°F. Our next classes will be held on four consecutive Sundays starting in October 2019.
Our club is available for group outings (e.g. team building and client entertainment) on weekday afternoons. An outing is three hours long and includes use of our facility as well as curling instruction from club members. The cost is $1,800 for a group of 16 people. Outings can be scheduled from October - March. For alternative days/times or larger groups the Bucks County Curling Club in Warminster, PA also hosts group outings. Alternative may include evenings, weekends, and summer ice availability.
Do you have youth programs?
Philadelphia Curling Club strongly supports teaching the great sport of curling to young people and encourages their interest. Children of members are automatically eligible for our programs, and young people whose parents are not members may also participate for a nominal fee. We have several programs available for young curlers:
- Little Rockers is our program for children ages 5-12. This group meets Saturday mornings to learn the basics and start playing together.
- Junior Curling is our young adult program for ages 12-18. Instruction is available for new curlers as well as competition training for those with advancing skills. With support from dedicated and capable instructors and coaches, some of our junior curlers have participated successfully at national and world competitive events.
