Sunday Evening - Learn to Curl Program (Oct - Dec):

This ten week on ice program is aimed at people that have not curled before but would be interested in trying. It will cover all aspects of the game from technique and strategy to the physics of the sport.  The course will include the etiquette and the social side of curling. For $150 it is a great way to experience a quintessentially Canadian sport. At the end, there will be the possibility of rounding off the season by joining other leagues, daytime and weekend. A refund is possible, if after the first three weeks you decide curling isn't for you. It should be noted that our program does not teach stick curling.

Off ice meeting: Sunday October 1st at 6PM for about 45 minutes.

On-ice sessions: from 5:45pm to 8pm  (be prepared to socialize afterwards).
