Junior and Little Rocker Curling Programs
Junior Curling (Grades 6 through 12)
Our Junior curling program is a great opportunity for beginners through intermediate skilled players to experience the sport of curling in a positive and fun environment. Our co-ed program includes teens in middle and high school. Two weekly sessions per week are offered at our club, with the ice dedicated only to our program at that time. You may choose to attend one session per week – or both!
The sessions will start with warm ups followed by drills that focus on the fundamental skills of the game (such as delivery, throwing stones, and sweeping). The group will then be divided into teams of varying skill for some game play incorporating different levels of strategy.
Our instructors will offer individual and small group training throughout each session introducing, and then reinforcing, proper technique of each skill set, as well as explaining all the unique terminology associated with the sport.
While curling is a game of strategy, tactics, and skill, it is also one that emphasizes good sportsmanship. This "spirit of curling" will be an integral part of our sessions, with all members of the club expected to congratulate their opponents for making a good shot, and keeping their own celebrations modest. Each game will begin and end with a handshake between opponents.
In addition to the regularly scheduled sessions, there may be additional opportunities for teams from our club to travel to weekend bonspiels (tournaments) and meet other junior curlers from across the state! More information regarding this will be given during the season.
