Curling School at Schenectady Curling club is a hands-on course designed to teach new curlers the different aspects of curling.
These classes emphasize the expressed needs of the participants, concentrating on teaching newer curlers in a controlled environment, and focusing on different aspects of the sport of curling each week. Participants will be encouraged to share their knowledge and experience with the rest of the group as various game scenarios are explored. Participants will have the opportunity to experience playing all positions on a rink.
What will we cover? This is limited only by the objectives of the participants. Some topics include: Objectives with and without the hammer; the roles of each member of a rink; effective communication from the house and hack; game strategies; assessing opponents strengths and weaknesses; identifying and responding to changing conditions; special rules near the hogline and T-line; etiquette, sportsmanship and deportment.
The Curling School is open to all men and women members who would like to excel in the sport of curling.
