UNO’s 7,800-seat Baxter Arena opened two years ago, almost to the day, and has since hosted a variety of rousing events — from hockey and volleyball to graduations and banquets. If you haven’t heard yet, the space will soon be adding curling to its roster!
The U.S. Olympic Team Trials will take place this November 11-18 in the arena, and will be the first non-NCAA sporting event to be held on the ice. UNO staff are hoping that this event will draw attention to the school, and to this beautiful space that Omaha residents know and love.
So, what is curling? And what do you need to know about this event? We rounded up all of the details for you to guide you in your curling adventures on and off the ice.
