The Newbie Lessons are for new curlers – for those who have never curled before, or have curled occasionally. The Newbie Lessons are organized into 5 week sessions aimed at teaching you the basics of curling, from technique, to lingo, to rules and etiquette, to getting you started on league curling after your 5 week session. There will be one instructor per sheet each week to support and work closely with you to help you go from “Bambi on ice” to a confident Newbie ready to sign up for league play or your first bonspiel (curling tournament). This is a great way to learn the sport, build your curling skills and confidence, and meet new people (and potential new teammates for league plan and/or bonspiel). Participants will receive a pair of rubber grippers as part of your registration fees.
Not as flexible as you used to be, or worried about knee and back issues and having to slide on the ice? Or worried about your balance while sliding on the ice? Put those worries aside. We will also introduce curling with a stick in the Lessons to keep you in the game. Except for the delivery technique, everything else about curling with a stick is just like “regular” curling so, don’t let some creaky joints or fussy muscles stop you from curling like a pro.
See the schedule below for information on what you will be learning in your sessions week by week.
