ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- A sport typically seen only during the Winter Olympics is making its way to Missouri.
A St. Joseph ice arena will soon host the St. Joseph Curling Club.
Missouri Western State University is teaming up with the city to teach players about the sport.
Curling involves players sliding a heavy stone across the ice toward a target, while two players, known as sweepers, guide the stone.
Club organizers hope people will take interest in learning to curl.
"People in the United States have started to get more excited about it," says Missouri Western's Brtton Johnson. "Not really knowing what it is, but just kind of watching it and trying to figure it out. It's a very strategic game, it's kind of loud and boisturous. People seem to have a lot of fun with it."
The university also plans to make curling an offering for students next year.
