Regular Session Junior Curling at the VCC!

The VCC welcomes young people ages 10-18, to learn the game, develop their curling skills and simply have fun! The program runs Saturdays from 11:30am to 1:30pm from Sept. 19 to April 9 (the season schedule can be viewed here).

Goals:

  • Instill the interest and desire to learn the game of curling in a fun and challenging environment.
  • Focus on skill development such as Delivery, Sweeping Technique, Turns (in turn, out turn), Line of Delivery, Weight Judging (sweepers), How to Call a Game, Strategy, Terms of the Game, Communication and Teamwork.

Most sessions will be on the ice. Some sessions (e.g. Strategy) will initially be off-ice and then on-ice for a game.

What to wear?

  • Wear sweats or loose-fitting pants that won’t restrict your movement on the ice.
  • It can be cold, so wear layers and bring a toque, gloves or mittens.
  • Wear runners with a rubber-like sole (not plastic), and ensure the bottoms are clean and free of all dirt and stones. If possible, dedicate a pair of shoes for curling use only (i.e. wear your street shoes to the club, then change into your curling shoes).

Additional details:

  • Start date: Sept. 19; fees to be paid prior to the start of the lesson (10:00-11:30am)
  • Cost: $200 [$155.48 + $35 Membership Dues + GST; Junior members do not pay the $35 CDF fee) - Kidsport Canada offers support for low-income families.
  • Age: 10-18 yrs.
  • Coaches: the program is run by certified coaches and assistants, who look forward to a great season of skill improvement and fun.
