Curl With Us

SVCC offers a range of programs and events to learn about curling, develop skills, and play recreationally or competively.

Below you’ll find the on-ice and off-ice activities offered by SVCC to develop as a curler and become a part of the Bay Area curling community. Whether your goals are to try the sport once, play occasionally, join a recreational league, or to go for the gold in competition, there is a path for you with SVCC.

Questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about our club and activities.

Introductory and instructional activities listed below are available to all (non-members and club members alike). Regular participation in on-ice activities, such as league play, requires membership in our club.

Embrace Your Unique Curling Journey

We understand that everyone’s development as a curler is unique, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to becoming a skilled and confident curler. Some are ready to join a league right after completing a Learn to Curl session, while others prefer to gain more experience through a Learn to Curl Level 2 or other activities before taking the plunge. Rest assured, there’s no “right way” to become a curler.

Our leagues welcome players of all levels, fostering an inclusive environment for everyone. Look for League Registration Windows on the calendar below and start playing regularly.

GETTING STARTED

LEARN TO CURL: Learn, Play, and Socialize

Never curled before? Sign up for one of our Learn to Curl events! This two-hour session will teach you how to slide, throw, and sweep and get you playing your first game. Check out our Learn to Curl page for more information and upcoming schedule.

LEARN TO CURL INFORMATION AND SCHEDULE

BUILD SKILLS & CONFIDENCE

PRACTICE ICE: Improve Through Repetition

Hone your skills with the support of our experienced curlers during Guided Practice sessions or – once you are comfortable on the ice – Unguided Practice. These opportunities allow you to get more slides and sweeping in to work on whatever you want to improve.

Availability varies based on other activities.

SOCIAL/DROP-IN CURLING GAMES:
Casual Fun for Everyone

Looking for a casual, one-time curling experience? Our Social / Drop-in Curling events are perfect for all skill levels. Register for an event, and we’ll create teams on the spot. It’s a fantastic way to meet fellow curlers, have fun on the ice, and gain valuable experience in a relaxed setting. You’ll get the feel of a league game without the commitment.

PLAYING AS A SPAREJoin a single game to help a short-handed team

When a league team is missing a player for one game, they can reach out to the “spare list”, a group of non-league players who are available to substitute on a one-off basis. Those who have completed a Learn to Curl are welcome to join a league game as a spare! Throw more rocks, get more game experience, and save someone from sweeping alone.

SIGN UP FOR SPARE LIST
SOCIAL EVENTS – WATCH PARTIES & TRIVIA: Connect off the Ice

Join our Watch Parties, Trivia Nights, or other off-ice social events! These events are a great opportunity to make new friends, share your passion for curling, and get to know the curling community.

LEARN TO CURL LEVEL 2:
Building Confidence on the Ice

Our Learn to Curl Level 2 program is a stepping stone between your first time on the ice and joining a league. This second-step class builds on the basics taught in our initial Learn to Curl program, with additional instruction and practice, for a smooth transition into league play.

OTHER DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES:
Continue Your Growth

We occasionally offer additional development activities for specific curling skills. From lesson series to one-off clinics, these events cover various aspects of the sport, such as sweeping techniques, delivery improvements, advanced strategy, and more. Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities and elevate your game to new heights.

Infrequent availability.

LEAGUE REGISTRATION: Curl Weekly With Our Welcoming & Supportive Community

Ready to take the plunge and join one of our weekly leagues? The best way to develop as a curler is to play regularly. SVCC leagues are part of all players’ continuous development, the center of our community, and friendly competition. 

SVCC offers seasonal leagues year-round at Sharks Ice locations in San Jose and Fremont. Typical seasons are shown below. All SVCC leagues are open to all skill levels and accessibility, and are open-format (any mix of genders on a team).

Registration opens 2-3 weeks before the start of games. Registered participants are matched onto teams by the drawmaster (league coordinator) based on experience levels. Rookie players are teamed up with experienced curlers to continue their development with skills and gameplay. Individuals are welcome to sign up, and teammate requests may be made during registration.
