Our Juniors Program is for ages 8-20 years of age. We offer instruction and team devlopment to junior curlers.
As many things are different in the world right now, one thing is right, CURLING WILL HAPPEN THIS YEAR, but it will look different. The important thing is its happening!!! I
Our junior program will look different this year. We are not taking first year curlers into our program because of CoVid. Coaches will be responsible for their team and instructional development, with help from the junior program, so only curler without teams will come to the Monday and Thursday program.
We will have Junior instructional on Monday 6-7 Starting on November 16,23,30,Decmeber 7,14, January 11,18,25,February 1,8,22 and March 1.
We will have Thursday instructional from 3-4pm starting November 19,26, Decmber 3,10,17, January 7,14,21,28,February 4,11,18,25
Junior League will run November 15,29, Decmber 13, January 3,17,31, February 14,28
Also, we are recommending each curler to have their own curling gear. Our stabilizers and sliders will be available but each user is responsible for cleaning, so use at your own risk. That being said, we sell curling equipment at the club
Curling is a fantastic opportunity for young people to exercise, have fun with friends and have a chance to learn a sport that can continue throughout their teen and adult years. It teaches youth the basics of the game along with a great opportunity to participate in the Provincial Little Rock Championships along with other fun spiels around the province.
Each Junior will need a pair of clean sneakers (dirt is damaging to the ice and rocks) There are no lockers this year, so please come prepared. Curlers need to wear loose, comfortable clothing for movement and flexibility; jeans are not appropriate. A hoodie or fleece will be easier to move in than a bulky jacket. Gloves would be a good idea as well. The Club has brooms and sliders for the weekly use and equipment may be purchased from the Club if your young athlete finds they are interested in continuing long term in the sport. Curlers are expected to behave respectfully and responsibly while at the Club. Students who cannot do this could be asked to leave the curling program.
All forms MUST be filled out by parents and/or guardians
