The Coyote Curling Club makes it easy for anyone to Try Curling!  We offer public and Corporate Learn-to-Curl events held throughout the month. 

A typical Learn to Curl is perfect for individuals who have never tried the sport before but are interested to learn the basics.  This is the ideal chance to try curling in a fun environment.  You’ll learn about the game, how to play, how to deliver the stone, how to sweep and basic strategy.  Plus, you’ll play a short game!

A class lasts roughly 3 hours.  You will start with a brief off ice tutorial on rules and strategy and then will spend about and hour on the ice with instructors helping you learn how to play the game. The final hour will be spent playing a game, putting everything you’ve learned into practice!

After the class, everyone is welcomed to partake in the time honored social tradition of “broom stacking”!  This is a curling custom where the teams get together and winning team buys a drink for the losing team!  Normally the losing team reciprocates but that all might depend on the score!! 🙂 

Wear comfortable clothing.  Athletic pants are ideal (to allow for lunges and squats) or loose fitting pants work well too.  Shorts aren’t permitted as exposed skin (legs, knees) melts the ice very quickly and ruins the ice surface.

Dress in layers. The air temperature is 40 degrees, so a light jacket thin gloves and a hat are good to bring along too. You start of cool but can work up a sweat out on the ice!

Be sure to bring a clean pair of tennis shoes or sneakers to wear out on the ice and warm socks. Athletic shoes are perfect. The shoes you arrive in are not permitted out on the ice as the smallest rock, leaf or piece of dirt can scratch the ice and really effect the playing surface.

Not at all!  The Coyotes Curling Club provides all the equipment for new curlers.  We have brooms for sweeping, step-on sliders for throwing the stone and delivery stabalizers to keep you upright and prevent falling.

Once you learn the basics, the best way to get better is to continue to play!  If you want to continue the fun, the Coyotes Curling Club offers mini-leagues for new curlers, curling drop-in games, and you can also jump into one of our many bonspiels (aka social curling tournaments) throughout the year!

Curling is a social game. It is customary to shake hands before and after a game and to wish the opposing team, “Good Curling.” The Spirit of Curling promotes good sportsmanship. Unlike other sporting events, slander is not encouraged during a game of curling.

The Mountain Pacific Curling Association, or MoPac. MoPac is one of ten regions in the United States and represents Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Utah. MoPac has 17 member clubs and hosts the play downs for the United States Curling Association, USCA.
