Learn to curl

Active Stirling’s learn to curl programme includes sessions for adult and junior beginners to learn to curl. Start with ‘try curling’ sessions and progress your way onto our Gateway Club. You can also book ice for clubs and practice ice.

Curling is a fun and challenging game combining physical and mental skill – each curler will aim to deliver the stones down the ice attempting to get closer to the centre of the target or ‘house’.

Active Stirling’s learn to curl programme follows the National Governing Body pathway from Scottish Curling.

What session should I book?
