The AMCC Youth Program is a developmental program focused on skill development and having fun. We have programs running from October-February for 6-16 year olds. Cost for all programs is $100/player.

- Registration and Medical forms, along with payment, will be required at time of registration. Equipment is available for use at no charge (brooms, sliders, grippers). Please bring clean shoes and warm clothing if planning to use our equipment.
Little Rocks: Each lesson starts with a warm-up, then instructors lead the kids through a few 10-15 minute practice and training lessons before ending the session with a mini-game. There is 4-6 kids and one instructor/volunteer per sheet. We use regular rocks but we have 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 ghost ring sheets so the curlers can move up distances as their strength and balance increases.
Bantam: The first couple lessons are devoted to teaching/relearning curling. We then form teams and each week we start with a warm-up and a short practice session, then move into games for the bulk of the lesson. Teams will also have the occasional week that is devoted to team training instead of a game.
Juniors: We start each week with a warm-up and some team skill-building, take a quick snack-break and then play games for the bulk of the session. Team training weeks are incorporated as able but separate ice time with a coach is also offered when preparing for bonspiels. Juniors are encouraged to volunteer with our younger leagues for volunteer hours.
