Looking for a sport to help you keep active this winter…why not give curling a try ?
Our Learn to Curl program is a great way to learn one of Canada’s best winter sports! It’s designed to teach adults (19-99) the basic rules, strategies and techniques of the game in a fun and safe environment. Created for beginners and those with some experience who would like to expand their curling knowledge and skills, the program offers you a chance to meet new people and socialize with friends.
Bring clean running shoes, gloves or mitts, stretchy warm layers of clothing and your enthusiasm!
Current Public Health guidance allows us to have up to 50 people in the ice shed without physical distancing or masks, but all standard COVID-19 precautions must be followed in the off-ice areas of the club, including wearing of appropriate face covering.
No experience is necessary and curling equipment will be provided. Experienced volunteer coaches from the Club will give on and off-the-ice instruction for both standard and stick curling.
Dates: Tuesdays November 17th, 24th; December 1st, 8th 2020.
* Club membership fee will be reduced by this amount for any participant completing the Learn to Curl program who decides to join the club for the remainder of the season.
