Curling 2018 Olympics: Full Schedule, How to Watch

Here’s how to watch all of the curling coverage, a sport that's basically the cousin of shuffleboard.

On Thursday, February 8, at 7:30 p.m. ET, the Olympic Curling competition kicks off at the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Three teams will hit the ice over the course of the Games at Gangneung Curling Centre: a women’s team (led by Nina Roth), a men’s team (led by John Shuster), and a mixed doubles team (led by siblings Becca and Matt Hamilton). A captain of a curling team is called a “skip.”

Curling, for those unfamiliar with the sport, is similar to shuffleboard—if the board was a vast sheet of ice, that is.

Players work together to throw and sweep a stone across the ice toward a circular goal that resembles Target's famous bullseye logo. Curling stones—also professionally called “rocks”—are typically made of granite and weigh over 40 pounds. Curlers spend so much time strategizing and debating each move that the sport has been dubbed “chess on ice.”

Canada has traditionally killed it at Curling, but at the 2018 Winter Games, all eyes will be on the U.S. men’s, team headed up by John Shuster. In 2006, Shuster's then-team took home the bronze medal in Turin, Italy—the only medal the U.S. has ever won in Curling. Cross your fingers for a second medal this month.

Russia, Britain, Norway, and Sweden also have teams competing, among many more countries.

There will be plenty of opportunities for a big win. At this year’s Games, Curling is the only sport with something going on every single day.

There are round-robin tournaments, followed by semifinals, then medal matches. The Closing Ceremony wraps things up on Sunday, February 25, at 6 a.m. ET.

Here’s the full schedule of Curling events and how you can tune in.
