New Curlers Start Here!
So you’ve been curious about curling and are finally ready to give it a try? Dakota Curling is THE best Twin Cities location for you to come experience this amazing game. We are extremely friendly to new players, have a warm and social community atmosphere, and provide lots of opportunity for instruction and mentoring.
Try an Intro to Curling Experience – $15 per person
In this first-time curling experience you’ll spend 45 minutes on the ice learning all the basics of the game including throwing rocks, sweeping, and scoring. This program is open to everyone ages 6 and up so bring out the whole family!
We have two sessions coming up: Saturday February 17th and Sunday March 3rd. Walk-ins will be accepted if space permits but we strongly recommend you reserve your lesson start time in advance. As a bonus, pre-registered ticket holders will be entered into a drawing for a FREE INSTRUCTIONAL LEAGUE worth $150!
Online Registration for February 17th
Online Registration for March 3rd
Take a Learn to Curl Class – $30 per person
A Learn to Curl class lasts two hours and includes both classroom and on-ice instruction as well as a short game. While there is no commitment required to join a league, this class would prepare you to jump into any league listed as either Novice or Open on our schedule.

Play in an Instructional League – $150 per person
The Instructional League is a package deal in which you get the Learn to Curl class described above plus FIVE more weeks of game play with integrated instruction each week. There’s no better way to prepare yourself with a full set of curling skills and all the confidence you’d need to play in any league than starting in the Instructional League!
We offer this league multiple times a year, typically on Sunday evenings. We have two upcoming options:
Beginning February 18th
Beginning April 8th
Just Drop In for a Game – $20 per person
We run “Drop In” curling once a month where you can simply turn up and we’ll make up teams from those who arrive. No prior experience is necessary and you don’t need to be a club member to play. If you are completely new to the game we’ll do our best to pair you up with other players with experience but this can’t be guaranteed. All equipment is provided – just carry in a clean pair of tennis shoes to wear onto the ice (street shoes are not permitted).
Upcoming Drop In Curling Dates
Jump Into League Play! – prices vary based on league selection
Feeling brave? You’re absolutely welcome to simply jump right into a league without having any prior experience, although we strongly recommend that you take a Learn to Curl class first.
You don’t even need to be a complete team of four – we’ll be happy to match up players to form teams as needed.
If you’re planning to jump straight into a league, we recommend that you start in a league listed as either Novice or Open. These leagues will have a larger percentage of new curlers in them and you’ll fit right in.
Our leagues vary in length and are generally priced around $20 per week. Some leagues also require that you sign up for an annual membership at $60 per year, although several short Novice leagues do not have this requirement.
