Event Details

Learn how to play the sport of curling! Curling is an Olympic sport in which players slide heavy granite stones down a sheet of ice towards a target area. Two teams, each with four players and eight stones, take turns sliding these stones toward the house, a circular target marked on the ice.

The path of the rock may be further influenced by two sweepers with brooms who accompany it as it slides down the sheet, using the brooms to change the state of the ice in front of the stone. A great deal of strategy and teamwork goes into choosing the ideal path and placement of a stone for each situation.

The purpose is to accumulate the highest score for a game; points are scored for the stones resting closest to the center of the house at the conclusion of each end, which is completed when both teams have thrown all of their stones.
