Improving Your Skills

If you’re new to curling, please head to our Try Curling page!

Coaches are on the ice throughout the year to help you improve your skills. It’s currently the off-season, but dates for the 2019/2020 season will be released later this summer.

You will be able to sign up online here when dates become available.

Find an option that’s right for you:

Thursday Drop In Sessions

We saw a rise in the number of requests for extra coaching help on the ice last season.

To help meet that demand, Scottish Curling certified coach and experienced curler Paul Davis volunteered to revive the Thursday Drop In session. The sessions start at noon and last up to 2 hours. Each session costs £10 and is open to all Edinburgh Curling Club members.

Improvers Course

Are you an experienced curler with a delivery problem? Who has picked up some bad habits? Or just want to change your delivery style? Then this is the course for you!

During the session, certified coaches will analyse your delivery and provide feedback on how to improve.

Stick Delivery Workshop

We had a great turn out for our first Stick Delivery Workshops last season! We will be holding sessions at the start of the 2019/2020 season. Check back for dates.

Use of a delivery stick can significantly extend the length of time a curler can play for enabling people to stay active in later years or help a curler return to the ice following surgery/injury.

Hosted by experienced Edinburgh Curling School coaches, this workshop will provide an introduction to stick delivery, as well as guidance for improving your game for those already using a delivery stick. The course costs £10 per person.

Club Coaching

Are members of your club looking for a bit of extra guidance? Then why not schedule a coaching session! Book your ice session yourself or through your Club Secretary, and ask for a coach to attend.

Please request a coach at least two weeks in advance to avoid disappointment. Club coaching is available to members only, subject to availability, and billed at a rate of £30 per coach.

Individual Coaching

Private lessons for up to 4 people are available upon request. Please contact the office for details.
