Curling lessons and open house in Fremont

Submitted By Davinna Ohlson

San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club will be hosting an open house, and will follow it up by treating those in the East Bay to curling lessons at Sharks Ice in Fremont (located on Warms Springs Boulevard). At the open house, which is Thursday, April 7, from 7:30 to 9:45 p.m., also at Sharks Ice, is set to include a Learn-to-Curl clinic. To be part of the clinic, cost is $15 a person, or $12.50 for groups greater than four. (SFBACC will also have an open house for its San Jose location on March 29 from 9:15 to 11:30 p.m.)

At Sharks Ice in Fremont, SFBACC will have a five-week series of curling lessons that begin Thursday, April 14. Each Thursday until May 12 SFBACC will teach the ins and outs of the sports to new curlers that have a serious interest in learning the one-of-a-kind sport.

Lessons -- contingent on student demand and instructors -- will be broken up into two separate classes, novice-beginner and advanced-beginner. To join the five-part lesson series, cost is $105. Novice lessons begin at 7 p.m. and run until 9:45 p.m. (there is a limit of 24 participant). Advanced lessons run from 7:45 to 9:45 p.m., and the eight-person limit has been filled. However, a waiting list is available.

Novice lessons will cover everything a brand-new curler needs to know to get started with curling including basic delivery, basic sweeping and the rules of the game. Advanced beginner series would cover the art of cleaning up one's delivery, mastery of basic shots, short and long timing, sweeping technique and weight judgment, and strategy.
