CLASSROOM CURLING LESSONS

SORRY TEACHERS – We are all booked up for this year!  It’s so popular that all time slots up to Spring Break 2020 are already booked.  For next year, to avoid disappointment, please book early in the Fall for your desired dates & times.

Hey Teachers, here’s a great idea  ….  bring your class to the curling rink for some curling lessons.  That’s right, the Curling Club offers lessons to classrooms of students, and this has become a very popular fieldtrip and could be a great fit for your eager students.  Under the watchful eye of our club’s certified coach, volunteers teach small groups of students the skills needed to become proficient at curling.  It is suggested that classrooms come for two lessons, each 1.5 hours long, to get the most out of this program.  Some more details are:

  • best age range is from Grade 4 – 12
  • best size is a group under 30 students
  • lessons are 1.5 hours long – it is best to book 2 lessons/class
  • lesson 1 is skill development and lesson 2 is games of curling
  • times are flexible and can be either mornings or afternoons; whatever works for your class & school
  • days during the 2019/2020 school year are Tuesdays or Fridays.
  • we will begin in early November and finish at the end of February
  • cost is $5/student/lesson (plus applicable taxes)
  • the club supplies the sliders, grippers, brooms and deliver aides needed for student success
  • all students MUST wear a helmet (hockey, skiing, biking, etc)
  • all parents must sign an “Informed Consent/Waiver Form” prior to students going on the ice
  • students should wear warm and stretchy/loose clothing and bring a pair of thin gloves
  • students must carry in a CLEAN PAIR OF INDOOR RUNNERS for use on the curling rink
