Saturday, Jan. 13, 5:45 p.m.—WHITE RIVER JUNCTION—It’s almost time for the Olympics and one of the sports becoming more and more popular is curling. Want to know more about the game and give it a try? The Upper Valley Curling Club will hold a Learn to Curl clinic on Saturday, Jan. 13 at 5:45 p.m. at the Barwood Arena in White River Junction. The clinic costs $25 per person and is open to any individual age 12 and older.
The club provides all equipment needed to curl; wear warm clothing and shoes with non-skid soles. Participants will start with an off-ice introduction to the concepts and rules of the game and then move onto the ice for hands-on instruction and lots of fun. If time allows, participants may even play a short game.
Curling is one of the faster growing sports in the U.S. There will be lots of television coverage during the Olympics and one can best appreciate the sport if they have had a chance to play it.
Space is limited for this clinic, so it is suggested to register in advance at uppervalleycurling.org.
