Curling is an Olympic sport in which two teams, each with four players, take turns sliding polished granite stones on a sheet of ice towards a circular target or “house.” Participants need to bring warm, flexible clothing (sweaters, hats, gloves, warm socks, etc.) and clean athletic shoes with non-slip rubber soles. All children must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian at the classes.
Frogtown Curling Club youth classes are led by, Ed Clark, an experienced instructor who enjoys teaching individuals of all ages how to curl. Ed jump-started Frogtown Curling Club’s youth curling program with the goal of introducing children of all ages, backgrounds and athletic abilities to the great sport of curling.In addition to proper technique and on-ice safety, Ed’s approach to youth curling instruction emphasizes teamwork, honesty, good sportsmanship and, most of all, having fun.
