The Lower Cape Curling Club is offering a three-session “Learn to Curl” program on Saturday mornings, November 2nd, 16th and 23rd from 9:30 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. at its home rink, the Charles Moore Arena in Orleans.

Participants will learn the on-ice basics of throwing stones, either by traditional “sliding” or standing “stick” delivery and sweeping; receive off-ice instruction on safety, scoring, and technique; and be introduced to the sport’s history and traditions.

Pre-registration is available through the arena’s website www.charlesmoorearena.com for $75 (covers all sessions) while walk-in day of registration is $90. Participants should dress warmly and bring clean soft-soled shoes or sneakers. All other equipment is provided.

Completion of the “Learn to Curl” program prepares individuals to join the club and participate in winter leagues which are held on Sunday afternoons at 4:30 p.m. and Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. beginning January 5 and 8, 2020 respectively.

The Lower Cape Curling Club was established in 2018 to teach, promote and encourage the sport of curling; to develop programs that lead to local, national and international competitions;  to promote good sportsmanship and camaraderie during both intense competition or simply while having fun; to teach the sport to all interested by creating public awareness and appreciation for the sport; and to provide a fun and safe atmosphere for club members and spectators.

The Charles Moore Arena is located at 23 O’Connor Way in Orleans, MA. For additional  information contact the Lower Cape Curling Club at [email protected]  or Arena staff at [email protected]; visit our website www.lowercapecurlingclub.com; or follow us on Facebook: Lower Cape Curling Club.
