Curling University

If you’re familiar with curling, but not sure that you are ready to join a league, let us coach you. This fall, we’ll be offering a three-night package of playing and instruction at the Barwood arena in Hartford, VT. Come for a scheduled learn to curl and then two additional Saturday nights for $50. If you decide to continue playing, the money will be applied toward your membership and the ice fee will be pro-rated for the number of nights remaining.

We will schedule the learn to curls based on demand. Send an email to uppervalleycurling@gmail.com for more information.

Upcoming Events

The summer 2016 learn to curl sessions are now complete and we are enjoying the last of our short summer season. Our annual meeting for current and prospective members will be Sunday, September 11th at 3:00 o’clock. Todd and Peg Allen have graciously agreed to host again at their farm in White River Junction.

Plans for two nights of curling in the fall are moving forward. We will be curling from 6:30 to 9:00 pm on Sunday nights at the Union Arena in Woodstock starting on October 16th. We will also have curling from 5:30 to 8:00 on Saturday nights at the Barwood Arena in Hartford starting on October 29th.

Watch for ice painting, learn to curls and other activities to be scheduled for the start of the season.
