Learn To Curl (L2C)


 Ice time and instruction from experienced curlers!

The Kalamazoo Curling Club offers L2C instructional sessions for various ages.  We can accommodate anyone as long as you can get a 42-pound piece of granite down a 150-foot sheet of ice! If you have concerns about sliding on the ice, we also have sticks that allow you to walk and push a rock instead of sliding :)

Dates and times for each L2C are shown on our Eventzilla Page.  Also check our Facebook Events Page for announcements!

The Kalamazoo Curling club offers several ways to learn how to curl. 

  • For those wanting a complete experience, the club offers multi-week curling academies. These include 3 instructional sessions that go in depth in how curling works. On day 1 we will teach you how to throw and sweep, on day 2 we will go over how the game works (including strategy!), and on day 3 it’s GAME ON against others in your class.
    • The academy for this season is over. We will have our calendar for next season's events in the late summer or early fall.
  • We also offer short (2 hour) learn to curl classes where you can learn some of the basics of the game.
    • For this year, we have learn to curl events on December 9, January 20 (sold out!), February 17 (sold out), and two on March 9 (very nearly sold out). If these dates sell out, we may add more to the calendar!
    • Book here!
  • We also mini-leagues on Sunday afternoons! These mini-leagues run for 5 weeks and specifically intended for new or novice curlers. For more info, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.! 


For learn to curls or curling academies, you can register as an individual ("free agent"), as couples, or in small groups with a suggested size of 4 people (team size) or 8 (game on!), and we can handle up to 40 people in one class!  If your group has 3, 9 or any odd number, that's okay as we will team you up with others!

:  To save a spot for you and your friends or family members, first decide whether you want to participate in the learn to curl academy or just do an afternoon class. For the class, please be sure to have date and time selected on the Eventzilla "SELECT A DATE" drop-down list for the day you want to attend! For the academy, select which academy you would like (winter or spring).  Then, for either type of event, (under 'Quantity') select the number of spots you wish to reserve, and click the blue 'Proceed' button.  Multiple dates cannot be selected for any one registration date so, if you would like to attend more than one L2C, please repeat the registration steps for each date you want to attend.   NOTE:  if you encounter a web browser compatability issue or you prefer to view the full registration form on a separate page, click HERE.




Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time! 


How to PREPARE:  Traditional curling requires sliding in a lunging position (see above picture). If you cannot do this, DON'T WORRY! Curling is for everybody, there are alternative delivery methods, and some of our league players use them. Please bring a separate pair of clean shoes and wear warm, loose-fit clothing to allow you to do this (note: jeans are discouraged) ...we will provide everything else you'll need to curl!  If you want to "read up" on some basics of this sport, please refer to Curling 101.



  • Tickets may be transferred to an equivalent event at no charge, provided it can be done free of charge to the Club (it usually can).

  • A request for the cancellation of a ticket must be provided to the Club at least 72 hours in advance of the event. In that case, the cost of the ticket, minus any fees paid by the Club to ticketing and purchasing agencies, will be refunded.

  • Cancellations without 72 hours notice can be discussed on a case by case basis, but a full or partial refund cannot be guaranteed.

  • A transferal or refund for an event that the ticket holder missed will not be granted unless it has been discussed in advance with the Club.
