Improve your curling skills at our 3-session skills clinic. Drills, delivery, sweeping, and strategy, taught by expert curlers.
You came to a Learn to Curl, so now what? Join our short Curling Academies, and get a crash course in the sport. Think of this as a beginner's league, where each night, we'll start with 25-30 minutes of drills and skills, followed by a game with coaching to put your new skills to the test. This is perfect for newer curlers wanting to learn more about the sport, and will have you ready to join our next league or our Summer Blockbuster Bonspiel this summer!
Important: This event has three (3) sessions. Please plan to attend all three.
Already an established curler? Maybe you've played in a league, but you want to fine-tune your skills? Sign up as an Intermediate/Advanced curler. We'll have specialized training and delivery analysis taught by some of Hollywood Curling's best curlers.

Instructors needed: 6

curling teacher for a group of up to 10 people.

You've seen the sport in the Olympics, you've heard about it from someone you know, and you've thought, “hey, I wonder if I can do that?” Come find out for yourself! With no experience necessary, come on out to see what the roaring game is all about. Learn how to deliver a stone, and how to sweep it down the ice. Find out what hog lines, hacks, buttons, and houses all have to do with it. Bring your families out and learn together.
Our instructors will give you an overall understanding of what you need to play the game. You'll learn the basics of throwing, sweeping, and some basic game flow and strategy. By the end of just one session, you can be ready to join our leagues and master the game!
What to Wear
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing that you can lunge in (stretch!), warm socks, and rubber-soled, closed toe shoes. Sneakers work well. We suggest no Converse, Toms, or other low-profile soles—your feet will get cold! Dress in layers—it can be cold on the ice, but you'll warm up once you start sweeping.
Curling is an accessible sport and we welcome participants who use wheelchairs, and others with limited mobility. Use of arms and hands is required, but we can provide a delivery aid (delivery stick) to release the stone without bending down. Please contact us in advance if you have questions or to discuss any special accommodations.
All adult participants must sign Hollywood Curling's adult release form. All minor participants (under 18) must have their parent or guardian sign Hollywood Curling's minor release form. Any additional guests (photographers, spectators, etc.) must also provide a signed release form before being allowed on the ice. You may download and fill out the release forms in advance, or we will have paper copies available at the event.
At Pasadena Ice Skating Center, you will also be asked to sign the venue's own release form as you enter. Pasadena Ice Skating Center is a separate entity from Hollywood Curling.

Hey Pasadena, are you ready to rock? Join us for a fun, open league on Saturday nights. Everyone is welcome to attend, even if you've only done one Learn to Curl! A manager's choice format, you'll be put onto teams with a mix of new and experienced curlers to ensure the best opportunity to meet new people while learning more about the sport. The league format will be a round robin.
Want to sign up with a friend or a full team? No problem, let us know in the registration form, and we'll keep pairs and groups together whenever possible. Everyone must still register and pay individually - don't forget to tell your teammates to register!
There are a few rules we need to enforce to make the sign up process fair for everyone. Help us make the process go smoothly by reading the rules below:
Helmet PolicyWe require that participants under the age of 12 provide their own helmets, which must be worn at all times when on the ice. 12+ helmets are recommended, but it is ultimately up to parental discretion. All minors will require parental or guardian consent at the first night of league.
Five Rock Free Guard RuleReflecting USA Curling and the World Curling Federation's recent rule change, this league will be subject to the 5-rock Free Guard Zone. No opponents' rocks may be eliminated from the Free Guard Zone (the area between the hog line and the tee line, excluding the house) until after 5 rocks have been delivered. More detail and strategy considerations in this blog post.
