Curling Opportunities For: Business, Organization & Private Social Groups
Many weekday afternoons or mornings are available for scheduling.
As of 2/9/14, no weekend time slots are still available in 2014:
Business or organization “Team building in two hours ” and private social group curling is available during regular season hours, late October through the middle of April.
The Rochester Curling Club, a smoke free facility, is an all-volunteer organization and offers:
- A two-hour on-ice, introductory or advanced curling experience. Instruction is provided by club members. See below.
- Optional meeting room rental, before and/or after the curling experience. See below.
“Team building in Two Hours” Typical Schedule:
15 minute – Your arrival, name tags, sign participant release forms, footwear fitting
5 minute – Introductions, Club safety rules, short video lesson
40 minute – On ice curling instruction & practice
60 minute – Organize into teams, normally 4 per team, & play a short curling match, instructor assisted
10 minute – Return equipment & footwear
If the size of your group is not a multiple of 4, then we can adjust team sizes accordingly.
More experienced groups, who have curled here previously, may receive less instruction time leaving more time to devote to a game.
If some in your group have knee, back or hip problems we can instruct them in the use of a shuffleboard style “stick” that will allow them to participate.
Groups of (ideally 32) up to 40+ people can be accommodated at one time on our 4 sheets of curling ice. Larger groups CAN be accommodated by adapting the schedule and with flexible/creative planning. Minimum group size is 16 to reserve a date on our calendar.
Curling Rates, Deposit, Full Payment:
Youth, 10-17yrs: $15/person
This curling experience is not recommended for children under 10. Children under 10 generally do not have the size, strength or attention needed to enjoy themselves and remain safe on the ice. Groups that include children younger than 10 or those with special needs will be considered on an individual basis.
Meeting Room: $50/hr for use of the WARM room before and/or after your curling experience.
The total fee will be charged based on the number of people given at the time you make your reservation, even if fewer actually attend. If more attend, then the charge will be increased accordingly. However, we may not have enough instructors to support these extras if we do not know about them far enough in advance.
Deposit required: A $100 deposit must be received at least 2 weeks prior to your reservation date. A check must be payable to “Rochester Curling Club” & send it to:
Rochester Curling Club
71 Deep Rock Rd
Rochester, NY 14624
The balance is due, in cash or by check only, at the start of your curling program.
If your business needs an invoice that can be paid a few days after the event, then that can be arranged.
Food & Drink & Curling Art:
You may bring in your own food and paper products. Or you may order it delivered.
Our full kitchen is available to heat food & wash dishes. Your clean up is required.

Adult Participant Release form, Minor Participant Release form:
We focus on your safety while you are at RCC and supervise your curling experience for your safety.
All participants are required to sign an prior to going onto the ice. Also, for children less than 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian must also sign their . Please print off copies of these releases and have them signed prior to arrival at the RCC or allow some time for that while you are at the RCC.
What should we wear?
The air is normally 38 degrees F on the curling ice, so you should dress warmly. We recommend wicking fabric & removable layers: Wind breaker/Synthethic outer layer with warm inner layers, flexible athletic pants, thin gloves and a hat. Jeans will restrict your movement and are cold. We have locker rooms for changing.
Shoes - CLEAN, relatively flat, shoes (sneakers with rubber or gum soles) will be needed for curling. Please CARRY your “clean curling shoes” into our building as our parking lot tends to be snowy. We must keep our curling ice as dirt free as possible to allow the curling stones to slide freely.
