When we shut down the curling facility is governed by the temperature of the concrete slab under the ice. If the slab is too cold for too long, it will create permafrost and potentially heave. However, since we only started up in January (as opposed to a normal year in which we will start up in September), we can actually keep the facility going until early to mid-June.
That means that we have time for another set of short 6-week leagues!
The Monday Night Men’s Spring League (6:30 pm – 8:30 pm) will begin on April 21st:
The Saturday Open Competitive Spring League (6:00 pm – 8:00 pm) will begin on April 26th:
A new Friday Night Rookie League will start on April 18th:

Due to the overwhelming interest that sold out our Monday and Friday rookie leagues, a new Thursday Night Rookie league is being established and will start on March 20th.
Rookie Leagues are the best next step for someone that has participated in a Learn to Curl session. They are 6-week long leagues consisting of one-hour sessions in which new curlers that have only been through one or more Learn to Curls play games against one another.
Each rookie league will be overseen by multiple experienced club members that will provide the participants with tips on technique and strategy.
Rookie Leagues cost $100 each plus a $10 annual membership fee (our year runs September - August). Players that have already completed two rookie leagues or one traditional league are not eligible to compete in a rookie league. This helps ensure that rookies are playing against others of similar experience levels.
Our Rookie Leagues are:
To sign up for a rookie league, create an account on our website and sign up as a rookie member and choose your league. Be sure to submit your payment for the league to the club via mail as soon as possible. Failure to pay promptly could result in your spot being surrendered to the next person on the waiting list.
Please note that Rookie Membership only allows you to participate in rookie leagues. To participate in another league, you must upgrade to Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum level membership.
The Fort Wayne Curling Club offers monthly low-cost Learn to Curl sessions. The cost for each session is only $10 per person. Ages 10-80 are welcome.
A Learn to Curl session is the best way for people to get gently introduced to the Olympic sport of Curling.
The session consists of 30 minutes of off-ice instruction followed by 2 hours on the ice. During the first hour, we will teach you the techniques of delivering the stone and sweeping. In the second hour, you will play a game against other new curlers.
No special equipment is needed. The Fort Wayne Curling Club will provide everything that you need. Just bring a clean pair of athletic shoes (please wear a separate pair of shoes into the building), dress in layers, and bring your sense of humor.
