Curling - Not just for the Olympics!

Curling is a social sport focusing on fun, fitness, strategy, and teamwork.

Curling is a social sport focusing on fun, fitness, strategy, and teamwork.  Played on a special indoor sheet of ice, the sport has both a physical and analytical aspect.  With the rigorous sweeping required for many shots, participants get a good cardiovascular workout, and the strategy of the game is why it is often referred to as ”chess on ice”.  The goal is to deliver your stone closest to the target, and then maintain that advantage while your competitor tries to get closer or knock your stone out. 

It is an awesome place to take your Scouts 10 years and above...

Learning to Curl is a great team-building event for your business, organization, or private party!

The Rochester Curling Club offers group instruction during our regular season from October through April. Our all-volunteer organization offers:

  • Two-hour on-ice (introductory or advanced) curling experiences
  • Optional meeting room rental before and/or after the curling experience

The Basics

A two-hour session typically includes instruction, practice, and an instructor-assisted curling match. Arrive 20 minutes beforehand to fit your footware with our rubberized grippers and to view a short video on the sport,.

If you are part of a more experienced group who has previously curled with us, instruction time may be reduced to provide more time on the ice.

If anyone in your group experiences knee, back, or hip problems, we can instruct them in the use of a shuffleboard-style stick that will allow them to keep upright while delivering a stone.

Group Size

Groups of 8 to 32 people can be accommodated at one time on our 4 sheets of curling ice. Larger groups can be managed with more flexible and creative planning.  For group sizes under 12  people, there is a minimum fee.



  • Adults: $25/person
  • Youth (ages 10-17): $15/person
  • with a minimum fee of $300

This curling experience is not recommended for children under 10. Groups that include children younger than 10, or those with special needs, may be considered on an individual basis.
