Click on Volunteers.
The Juniors Program is an excellent opportunity for all youngsters 8 to 19 years to experience the thrill of learning a great game with a fabled history and a bright future. The game of curling offers a chance for kids to meet new friends, have fun, and learn about etiquette and teamwork.
It is recommended that the youth dress warmly, in layers, with gloves and a hat.
Players MUST have a dedicated pairs of sneakers to be worn only on the ice. Curl BC and Curl Canada recommend hockey or figure skating helmets for all curlers under 12.
Players may also want to purchase their own sliders, grippers and brooms, but this is not mandatory as there is equipment available at the rink to borrow. There are also two social events each year – a Christmas party and a Year-End party.
Please be prompt in picking up your child!
Supervision (along with Parents) & instruction provided by members of the Port Moody Curling Club
There are 3 to 4 bonspiels that our Club typically participates in during the season. They are put on by the curling clubs of Lower Mainland. There is an additional cost to participate in these bonspiels, approximately $25 to $50 per player, per event.
Competitive Teams take part in the Optimist Junior Interclub Curling League
For those interested in participating at a more competitive level, the Optimist Junior Interclub Curling League, optimistjuniorcurling.ca, holds its games on Sundays, mainly in Cloverdale. This is for curlers who wish to play on a team, and are able to make the commitment of attending these Sunday games. Beginners are definitely welcome!
If you are interested in playing on a team please let the co-ordinator know in early October
Each Optimist team also requires a parent to act as an assistant coach and another parent to act as team co-ordinator. There is an additional cost to participate in the Optimist League (approximately $50 to $75 for the season). There will be a special meeting for parents whose children are playing in Optimist end September.
