Shot Types


Some basic types of curling shots are draw, takeout, raise and guard.  Each is useful in different situations.  When to use each shot becomes evident as you learn the strategy of the game.  Here is an explanation of the terms:

    Draw:
    A shot with the right amount of speed to stop the stone in the house.

    Takeout:
    A shot intended to knock an opponent's stone out of scoring position.

    Raise:
    A shot designed to bump one's own team's stone into scoring position.

    Guard:
    A stone in front of the house used to protect a stone
