All members of the curling team throw stones. Every end, they take turns throwing 2 stones each in the order of: Lead, Second, Third/Vice/Mate, Skip.

The person who is currently delivering their stone could be called the thrower.

Do you have to throw a curling rock?

No the weight is a prefrence the stone is pushed on ice. The term "throw" is used in curling to mean the process of sliding or "delivering" the rock down the ice. A curling rock is not actually thrown through the air in the conventional meaning of the word. A curler "throws" (slides) the rock down the ice with a certain "weight" (speed). More or "heavy" weight means the rock is thrown with more speed. Less or "light" weight means the rock is thrown with less speed. The speed of the rock does not come from arm motion, but rather the speed with which the curler slides out of the "hack" (the black foothold that looks like a starting block). A curler always releases the rock gently out of his hand. If more speed "weight" is needed, then he pushes out harder from the hack.

What is the equipment called for curling?

"Curling shoes," one with a slippery Teflon slider built into the sole and the other with just grippy rubber on the bottom, are used to allow players to slide smoothly down the ice during their delivery (sliding) of the curling rock. "Curling brooms" or "curling brushes" are used to "sweep" the ice in front of the rock, decreasing the friction between the rock and the ice and making the rock go both farther, and curl (curve) less if so desired. Brooms are also used by most players during their delivery for balance. Many teams will use stop watches to time a rock between certain points on the ice, to get an idea of how fast the rock is moving.

Can you sweep a curling rock from behind it?

This won't do anything, because you're not affecting the ice in the rock's path.
