During the 2018-2019 curling season, four area high schools offered curling as part of their life-time sports curriculum during physical education. The high school program originally started a number of years ago with Homestead High School and has expanded to include Cedarburg, Grafton, and Living Word High Schools. Over the last few years, dozens of curling instructors have donated their expertise and hundreds of volunteer hours to help teach all aspects of the game.
Students have learned various skills, sportsmanship and strategy. They report that their unique curling experience has served them well as topics for essays, in speeches, and during college and job interviews. They have benefited from learning to play the sport, meeting new people, and meeting the challenges the game provides. Coaches and instructors enjoy seeing the students' enthusiasm and team player skills as they learn the game.
