### 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.
