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.
This program was developed by Sarah Brown, who 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.(due to Sarah no longer being the manager she will not be teaching this program for the season.)
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!
The Little Rockers Curling Program is a non-competitive program where kids ages 6 to 12 can learn the sport of curling. The perfect program for the brand new young curlers. The youth in our community is the future of our wonderful sport, and this is the perfect opportunity to get your child into the world of Curling. This 14 week program is designed to get you familiar with ice sport safety and courtesies, as well as basics of the sport of curling such as sliding and sweeping techniques.
