Adult Learn to Curl
FALL 2020 WINTER 2021

You’ve watched it on TV but have you ever wanted to try curling yourself? The Rose City Curling Club Learn to Curl Program is a program designed specifically to teach adults how to curl. The 7 or 8 week program takes participants through the sport step-by-step with a highly qualified instructor alongside at every moment. Each of the weekly Sunday afternoon sessions is 1.5 hours long, giving participants plenty of time to be out on the ice.

Sarah Brown, the Curling Club General Manager, has taught this program completely through 8 times at the Sherwood Park Curling Club and has come up with a perfect combination of off ice and on ice lessons, giving participants the best chance at success in the sport. She has watched lifelong friendships develop in this program many times before and looks forward to bringing this program and all that comes with it to Camrose.

Please dress warmly and wear indoor, soft-soled shoes if you do not have curling shoes. Brooms and sliders are available to use if needed.

If you wish to pursue more curling following this evening, please consider joining the Wednesday night Social Fun League. This league is a mix of both new and experienced curlers but is non-competitive, only 6 end games and the emphasis is on having fun!

Member Lessons
   
Slide & Delivery Sweeping & Weight Judgement Strategy

Have you ever wanted to improve your curling skills? Sarah, along with any guest instructors she can find, will watch, offer advice, and help improve your curling technique and knowledge. The lessons will include individual evaluation along with drills to meant to focus and hone your skills. *Please note, this session will be delivered group style, with a small amount of time for individual evaluation. If you are looking for more one-on-one help, please book a private lesson with Sarah. Further, due to the need for proper physical distancing, there will only be 24 spots available in this session. A waitlist – with a potential for a second session – will be started if more than 24 people are interested.
