Junior Program

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, VCC is unable to offer the Junior program for the 2020-2021 season.  We hope to have the Junior program back up and running beginning September 2021.

VCC welcomes young people ages eight to 18 years old to learn the game, develop their curling skills and simply have fun! The junior program is run by certified coaches and assistants. Kidsport Canada offers support for low-income families. 

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, calling a game, strategy, communication and teamwork

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).
