Little Rocks is our curling program for the youngest of curlers, aged 6-11. It's held every Saturday from 10 to 11:30 AM.
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 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 cost of the program is $50 (season).
