We practice at the John Breslow Ice Hockey Center, compete in league in Omaha, and travel to bonspiels around the Midwest. Our season starts within the first two weeks of the semester and goes through late March. Our biggest event of the year is the Cornhusker Spiel, a tournament we host here in Lincoln at the end of January that draws in some of the best teams from around the country. No experience is necessary and no extra equipment is needed other than a clean pair of shoes and warm clothes that you can play in.
There are two different levels of commitment within the club. The first, Skills Squad, practices every Tuesday night. The second, Competition Crew, practices every Tuesday night and competes in league every Sunday in Omaha and in bonspiels throughout the year. Tryouts for competition crew are usually held the last week in September/first week in October. The Competition Crew dues are $120 per year and the Skills Squad dues are $50 per year.
Both levels of commitment are encouraged to attend social events and fundraisers that the club puts on. Curling is “the Gentleman’s Sport” so we expect all members to treat each other with respect and honesty. We strive to make this club a place for all to be welcome and feel like they can call this club their second family!
Feel free to email the club with any inquiries or other questions. Thanks and Curl Big Red!
