Curling Clubs are open to all, and offer instruction to new curlers to learn the game and to more experienced curlers to improve skills and strategy.

Leagues for brand new curlers planned for 2013-14 at the following clubs:
 
Ottawa Curling Club - on Tuesdays from 8:45 to 10:45
From October until April. Two levels of instruction.  In Level 1 curlers learn the basic skills for the first 10 weeks, followed by games for the rest of the season.  Instructors are available at all times - even during games - to help curlers learn essential skills they will need to play in games and bonspiels.  After one season in Level 1, curlers move to Level 2 where curlers play games in a league format, with instructors available at all times to help with delivery technique and game strategy. To register for this league, or for additional information please contact Dalal Abou-Eid
