VCC's Junior Development Program is Growing
The VCC's Junior Development program is a Club-run league that is coached by dedicated volunteers. The league welcomes young people ages 10-18, to learn the game, develop their curling skills and have some fun while learning the sport. It is open to all skill levels including those who have never curled before. The Program runs 23 Saturdays from 11:30am to 1:30pm from Sept. 19 to April 9.
Last season's Junior Development Program saw a 100% increase (from 21 members in 2013 to 42 members in 2014).
"We expect to see between 45 and 50 members in this season's Junior Development League", says Mark Robinson, volunteer coach and Club Past President.
The league consists of engaging drills, game scenarios, and mock games to help the Juniors develop their skills. There are also opportunities to dress up and have fun during the Halloween and Christmas season, as well an a Crazy Wig Day.
