Course Details
Ready to spend more time on the ice after a Try Curling or group session? New to the game and keen to take up the spot? Then this is the course for you! Over the three days you will be taught all you need to know about how the game is played and how to deliver and sweep a stone.

The course is run over 3 sessions:
Session 1 is designed to get you onto the ice safely and to get you delivering a curling stone, with elements of sweeping and a basic understanding of the rules.
Session 2 will further develop your skills and knowledge of delivery and sweeping and end with a game with your classmates.
Session 3 is the culmination of the previous sessions. You’ll be invited to join a session of your choosing with our New Stones, the Murrayfield beginners club. With guidance from a certified coach, you’ll bring all your knowledge together and put it into practice in a full game.

At the end of the course, your coach will provide details on clubs looking for new members, as well as information on how to become a regular curler with the New Stones – where you can further hone your skills before joining a traditional curling club.
In no time you’ll be confidently putting your new knowledge into practice!
