*Participants and parents are reminded to review our Return to Play Plan with their participating children. Any parents not assisting on the ice are welcome to remain seated in the upper lounge (or on the main floor if seating is available) during their child's session.

We will be having two "Teach the Parents" sessions (9-10am and 10-11am) on Sat. Sept. 26.

  • One parent/guardian for the Little Rocks and Bantams must attend.
  • Please plan to wear a mask and bring a pair of clean running shoes (or curling shoes) and warm jacket and/or gloves or mitts.
  • We will be going over the basics of the game, a curling slide, sweeping, etc. and how to teach it.

“Door Is Always Open” Policy

Parents and curlers (and the Board) are reminded that this is their program and that suggestions for changes are always welcome and will be implemented when deemed appropriate. 

Little Rocks (age 6-10, 1:00 - 2:00 pm)

The focus of this program will be fun.

GOALS

  • T-A-R-G-E-T (Throw A Rock Good Every Time)

The Program will be skills-based for most of the season, a skill will be taught and practiced each week and then reintroduced/reinforced the following week prior to the introduction of a new skill.  Fun games/drills will be used to increase the development of non-delivery skills.  Actual curling games will not be introduced until players have developed enough skill to safely and properly deliver a rock.  Depending on the curlers, we may “speed up” or “slow down” the rate at which we introduce new skills or move to actual games.

We will not be including a group warm-up at the beginning of the league.

  • Parental Participation

We will be requiring parents to be on the ice to supervise and help the curlers. 

There will be a schedule/information package for the parents at registration, a general meeting prior to the start of the season to explain and answer any questions and there will be an on-ice “Teach the Teacher” session prior to first curling.

  • Equipment & Treats

We will be using the labeled ziplock with gripper/slider/name tag. It must be taken home and brought back to the club each week.

We will not be offering weekly treats but will be developing a weekly prize(s) as part of the program.

  • Christmas Party and Wind-up

As usual.

Bantams (age 11-15, 1:00 - 2:15 pm)

The focus of this program will be fun.

GOALS

  • T-A-R-G-E-T (Throw A Rock Good Every Time)

The Program will be skills-based for part of the season, a skill will be taught and practiced each week and then reintroduced/reinforced the following week prior to the introduction of a new skill.  Drills and short games will be used to increase the development of non-delivery skills.  Full curling games will be introduced to the league after the Christmas, we will assess whether an actual league should be created or a more relaxed approach is warranted.

We will not be including a group warm-up at the beginning of the league but curlers will be introduced to warm-up exercises and but curlers will be introduced to warm-up exercises, and encouraged to get themselves physically ready for curling before arriving at the club.

  • Parental Participation

  • “Door Is Always Open” Policy

Depending on the curlers, we may “speed up” or “slow down” the rate at which we introduce new skills or move to actual games.  We will discuss with the curlers to get their feedback to ensure that everyone is getting the most out of the league whatever the skill level.

Juniors (age under 21, 3:00 - 5:00 pm)

The focus of this program will be fun.

The curlers will be canvassed throughout the year to ensure the league is meeting their needs.  The athletes and parents will be given every opportunity to participate in the organization/operation of the league.

GOALS

  • T-A-R-G-E-T (Throw A Rock Good Every Time)

Within the game setting, there is still ample opportunity to discuss and develop better skills, including sweeping, communication and, of course, rock delivery.  Strategy will also be included in the instruction, bringing one or both teams together to discuss, one skip or both.  It is a perfect environment to improved specific and all-around skills.

  • Depending on the need, clinicians will also be brought in to help specific teams/skips.

We will not be including a group warm-up at the beginning of the league but curlers will be introduced to warm-up exercises, and encouraged to get themselves physically ready for curling before arriving at the club.

  • Christmas Party and Wind-up

We will discuss with the curlers and plan appropriate celebrations.
