Be cool, become a curler this fall

Beginners will learn the basic delivery and brushing techniques

There will be free Adult Beginner and Intermediate curling clinics happening on Monday, Sept. 29; Tuesday, Sept. 30; Wednesday, Oct. 1 at the curling club.

Those planning on attending are expected to be present each of the three nights as the instructors will be building on and reviewing skills taught the previous night.

The Beginner clinic will run for an hour each night beginning at 6:30. Beginners will learn the basic delivery and brushing techniques. Those attending the Beginner clinic should arrive at 6:10 so they can be sized for sliders and brushes, which are also provided free of charge.

Beginners should wear warm, loose, comfortable clothing (sweatpants are great), and carry in a pair of flat-soled shoes to wear on the ice (runners are excellent).

The Intermediate clinic (for curlers who have one year or more experience) will run from 8-9 p.m. each night. Intermediate curlers will have a chance to improve their deliveries and brushing techniques and play a two-end mini-game the last night to try out their new skills.

If you are planning to attend either clinic, or have any questions, call the curling club manager, Susan, at 250-287-4200 to register. Walk-ins are also welcome, but advance registration is appreciated.

A team of excellent instructors will be offering their expertise, so don’t miss out on this great opportunity. Come on out and try a new sport or improve on your current skills.
