Youth & Schools Curling

Junior Curlers

Juniors curlers aged 8 to 21 are encouraged to join us for regular coaching sessions starting at 8:45 on Sunday mornings and finishing around 10am.

Participants get an hour on the ice with qualified coaches, in small groups of similar ability. Curling encourages teamwork, builds confidence, and inspires leadership. Strategic thinking and physical exercise are enjoyed in a fun welcoming environment. As participants improve, they will be encouraged to aim for Scottish Curling Skills Awards.

Advance registration (below) is required for NEW attendees only. Regular attendees’ coaching is paid via annual invoice at the start of September and new attendees are free of charge.

Once young curlers are feeling comfortable, they are encouraged to join Gogar Park Young Curlers who hold league games directly after junior coaching. There are also many other clubs that would welcome members aged 8+ at various times across the week.

2021/22 Junior Coaching Schedule

Participants should wear warm layers and clean-soled trainers. More information on what to wear curling is available here.

Schools Competitions

Curl Edinburgh welcomes any school looking to bring pupils onto the ice as part of their curriculum. We already have several schools from around Edinburgh who visit for weekly sessions of social sport. For competitive pupils, there are opportunities to represent Edinburgh at the National Scottish Schools Championship.

Schools participants are encouraged to also join the Sunday morning junior coaching sessions, as detailed above.

If your school would like to join, please contact us: or 0131 337 4242.
