Dakota Curling – Lakeville, Minnesota USA

Fall 2016 Instructional League

Information

This introductory league plays on Sunday afternoons, October 23 through December 11, and is geared toward players who are new to the game or have not played in many years. The league integrates weekly instruction with game play and is a great league for building skills and confidence in the game quickly. Players typically register for this league as individuals and the club makes up teams, although you are welcome to register as a team if you have four friends who want to learn and play together.

This league does not require membership in Dakota Curling and is a very cost-effective way to get familiar with the game. For more information on this league, please see the league page below.
The Instructional League will meet Sundays 10/23/16 to 12/11/16 and plays from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

The cost will be $150 per player for the season. This league does not require membership in Dakota Curling.

This league is currently full and registration is closed.  We have many more leagues starting up in our dedicated location in downtown Lakeville in January.  Please come back and join us in the new year!

Setup Crew

All Members of Dakota Curling, and really any curling club, are expected to know how everything works at a basic level. In an arena, it is even more critical that our membership understands what is necessary to setup the ice for curling. Therefore, each week 2 or more teams from Instructional League will also be asked to show up an hour early to help setting up the ice for play. You will learn how to place hacks, cool the stones, place scoreboards, and maybe even use the Ice King. Our club is possible because we are able to go from hockey to curling in less than an hour, and that can only happen when we have enough help. If your team cannot send any members to help with setup on the day you are scheduled, please notify another skip and request to trade.

On the weeks you are scheduled to participate in setup, please show up an hour before play begins, at 4:30 pm.
