Why Curling for Juniors?
Curling is an inclusive sport that ANYONE can excel at, and we're super excited to be offering young people the chance to learn new skills, build confidence, and develop leadership and teamwork abilities through participation in this fantastic and fast-growing sport. Curling is a game built on a tradition of sportsmanship and sociability, where no one sits out, every team member is essential, and every game begins and ends with a hearty handshake.
We're launching our 3rd year of the program, and our team of instructors includes a former junior curler who competed at the World Junior Championships. We provide all the equipment your child needs to get started.
- Wear warm clothes - hats and gloves strongly encouraged - Kids should wear clean sneakers on the ice.
- All other curling equipment will be provided.
- All Head instructors will have passed a background check and passed USA Olympics Safe Sport program.
- Children 5-8 are strongly encouraged to wear a helmet when on ice (bike helmet is acceptable).
- Minor Waiver
