NOVICE JUNIORS 4:30 PM
Novice Juniors are those 8-20 years old with less than two seasons of curling experience. Come and learn the "roaring game" and have fun with new and old friends.
For kids returning for their second year of curling, there is a brand-new curling program that will be implemented this year that will allow curlers to progress in their skill levels, earn badges for new skills learned and learn to curl in a team game format. We will be focusing less on repetitive skill drills and more on playing the great game of curling.
For children brand new to curling, their will be an introduction to curling and safety, an explanation of the equipment and how the game is played, how points are scored, basic stance, throwing, aiming and how to make shots and how to play the game in a team format.
Program begins Oct 16, 2019 ends Feb 26, 2020. No curling on Dec 18, Dec 25, Jan 1
It costs just $95.00 plus tax per child for the entire year!

There are two time slot choices, both featuring 55 minutes of ice time. 4:30 PM or 5:35 PM. Space is limited so first come first served.
Helmets are not provided and are mandatory under 9 years of age from Curl BC Guidelines. 9 – 12 year of age, Curl BC recommends wearing helmets, but it is not mandatory. Ages 13 and over do not have to wear helmets, but we recommend wearing some form of protective headgear. Helmets can be hockey, bike, skateboard or curling helmets.
The club requires clean indoor only footwear be worn on the ice or dedicated curling shoes. Runners are a very good choice or vans or keds.
The club provides brooms, pull over sliders and grippers for a minimal rental fee of $1 per time session. Curling crutches are provided free of charge to curlers who need them.
You can bring your own curling equipment as long as it is clean and in good condition.
What to Wear:
We recommend wearing warm, stretchable pants, such as tights, sweatpants or jogging pants. Jeans are not good for curling.
It is cold on the ice so a warm jacket is important as well as gloves that can grip a broom and a curling rock. Really puffy gloves or even finger ski gloves are not a great idea – they are too bulky. A good quality finger knit glove is best.
A neck warmer is a good idea, but not a scarf, as it can get caught when a curler throws the rock.
Layering is a really good idea as when we begin to play full games, kids can get quite hot.
Warm socks is a very good idea.
Lockers can be rented from the curling manager if they are available for a $20 fee for a half locker.
