The Monday Novice League (alternating 6:45 pm and 9:00 pm draw times) is suitable for someone who has been through a curling clinic or program or has limited curling experience. You must be ready to make a commitment to curl all season. Participants may sign up as individuals to be placed on teams, as a complete team of four, or as a partial team looking for one or two others. VCC supplies necessary curling equipment, including step-on sliders, grippers, brooms and delivery devices.
The 2019-20 season will start on Sept. 23 and run through to Mar. 30 with 23 weeks in total. There will be two weeks off at Christmas and no curling on Thanksgiving. Remembrance Day and Family Day holidays. The first five weeks of the program are devoted to curling instruction, then league play begins in week six.
Participants may curl in the novice league for only two seasons, then are asked to move on to other Vancouver Curling Club leagues to make room for other new curlers in the league. This is a fun league as everyone in it is relatively new to curling and the bar is open for socializing when your game is done.
During the 2019-20 season, VCC is offering five-week novice leagues on Saturdays from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, starting on Sept. 28, Nov. 16 and Jan. 18 and Mar. 14. A curling instructor will be on hand each week to provide help to those who need it. VCC supplies necessary curling equipment, including step-on sliders, grippers, brooms and delivery devices.
