Little Rocks | Juniors | College Curling
Little Rocks is our curling program for the youngest of curlers, aged 6-11. It’s held every Sunday from 1:30pm to 3:00pm, unless otherwise noted.
Multiple instructors usually start the session with a practice/instruction, and then pick teams for practice games. Older kids (10/11 years old) usually go on their own sheet and play their own game.
Some members use full-size, half-weight stones, while others use full weight stones. It really depends on what the children are comfortable with. Younger members are required to wear helmets for safety reasons.
Occasionally, we’ll schedule competitions (bonspiels) against other clubs. There are a few opportunities to travel for an event, (Albany Curling Club, Ardsley Curling Club, etc.) for those who are interested. This is not set in stone, as these trips are based on participation and interest.
The program is growing. The 2010/2011 program had around 30 members.
The cost of the program is $30 (season).
If you’d like to sign up your child for Little Rocks, or have any questions regarding the program, please contact our youth curling coordinator: Jim Jordan.
