Contributed by Prince William Ice Center

Woodbridge, VA – April 9, 2014 – The Winter Olympics in Sochi generated quite a lot of interest in curling, a game of strategy and finesse, and Prince William Ice Center is pleased to announce the start of a curling program this Spring.

During the Spring and Summer, Prince William Ice Center will offer numerous Learn-to-Curl sessions that will give people an opportunity to learn about the sport and try it for themselves. The first sessions will be held on Sunday, April 13th from 4:20pm to 7:00pm, Monday, April 14th from 7:10pm to 9:20pm, and Wednesday, April 16th, from 6:40pm to 9:00pm.

Advanced registration is required for all events. April Learn-to-Curl events are $15 per person. Registration information can be found at www.pwice.com (under the “Lessons” tab). Registration can also be entered by calling 703-730-8423.

Additional Learn-to-Curl sessions, as well as times for curling practice and matches will be announced at www.facebook.com/pwice and www.pwice.com. League play will start in May.

The now popular sport of curling was invented in medieval Scotland, with the name coming from the curved path as the “stones” take on their way to the target. Today, curling is played world-wide, with Canada having perhaps the largest population of curlers. Curling was introduced as an Olympic sport at the 1998 Olympics and, owing largely to televised Olympic competition, the sport is growing in the U.S.
