Curling is a sport in which players skillfully slide stones across a sheet of ice toward a target area that is segmented into four rings. This weekend the Rochester Curling Club is inviting area teens, ages 12-17, to try out the Olympic sport for themselves. An open house will be held at 71 Deep Rock Road (about a half mile west of the airport off Brooks Road) on Sunday, November 18, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Four one-hour sessions will be held, and will include 20 minutes each of off-ice instruction, on-ice instruction, and on-ice practice.
The organizers recommend that participants wear loose-fitting warm clothes and a clean pair of athletic shoes (sneakers are best). A release form must be signed by a parent or guardian for participation on the ice. The form is available for download at the club website rochestercurling.org, or may be filled out on the day of the event. The open house is free to attend.
