Learning to curl is even easier with video helps. This 6 minute segment covers the basics of curling.
We offer free, introductory clinics with nationally certified instructors for all new curlers. The Blackhawk Curling Club (BCC) also annually organizes and subsidizes a “new curlers” league that runs for 4 weeks. For new curlers who choose to join the Curling Club, we also have sharply reduced first-year fees. Click here for a full list of new member benefits.
If you would like to learn to curl, there are a number of instructors at the BCC, certified by the United States Curling Association to teach you properly and safely. Instructions are offered at nominal cost at our annual clinics. The Club will provide the necessary equipment, all you need is a medium weight sweater or light jacket and a pair of very clean shoes (we keep our ice spotless, no street shoes, please)
First, you will learn on-ice safety. Then we will work you through the basic skills and techniques, and explain the objectives, scoring and strategies of curling. Along the way, you will be introduced to the traditions that have made curling the favorite winter sport of tens of millions worldwide.
You will learn to curl in a couple of hours, and then many people join the “New Curler’s” league. You might also choose to join a more experienced team as a “lead” (first rock thrower), and if so, we can help you find an appropriate team and league. We have leagues for all skill levels. No matter your level, you will never run out of challenging competition at the Duluth Curling Club!
We also run a very active and popular Junior Curling Program for young people (age 7 to 18). It has produced, over the years, several world and national champions and Olympic contenders.
We are offering free learn to curl clinics on October 20th between 2pm and 6pm. Please fill out the form below to sign up.
