Introducing kids ages 6-9 to curling in a fun way. Kids learn the basics of the game, delivery and sweeping with a bit of rules and etiquette thrown in. Smaller rocks (about half the weight of regular rocks) are used. Instruction will be stressed for the first few weeks but playing time will be increased as the season progresses.
When: Saturdays 3:00PM - 4:00PM
Equipment: Minimal equipment required - clean soled shoes (NO OUTSIDE FOOTWEAR), comfortable, loose fitting clothing (NO JEANS). Brooms are available if required.
Fees: $80 fee includes Christmas party, prizes and Curl Manitoba Association fee. Please make cheques payable to Elmwood Curling Club and forward to the above address, indicating Little Rocks on the envelope.
Note: In order to run successfully, the Little Rocks programs is heavily reliant on parent volunteers/participation. Please advise if you would be able to volunteer some time, either on or off the ice. For on-ice, some curling knowledge would be an asset but is certainly not necessary. There will be a parent volunteer information session held prior to the first week of curling to familiarize individuals with the program, their roles and work out tentative time schedules. Some of our juniors do help out but the number of kids we can accept in the program will be determined by the number of parent volunteers we get. If you have any questions please contact Chris Trotter firstname.lastname@example.org 204 997 1951.
