Learn to Curl - Adults


2016-17 Learn to Curl Program for Adults
(formerly Sunday Instructional League)

This year, in conjunction with Panorama Recreation, the Glen Meadows Curling Association will be offering an eight week learn to curl program for adults from October 23 to December 11, 2016, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This program is designed for beginning curlers and intermediate ones who wish to gradually improve their game through this blend of instruction, mentored practice and game experience.

This program will provide curlers with an opportunity to learn the game, practice skills, participate in games and basically have fun with curling. A new aspect of the game will be covered each Sunday for about a half hour followed by a game where participants can pit their skills against each other in friendly competition.  The skills that will be taught are: delivery review and safety, sweeping and etiquette, delivery mechanics (balance), delivery mechanics (alignment/slide), delivery mechanics (dynamics), delivery mechanics (power), grip, turns and release, and strategy.

Teams will be changed weekly to give curlers the chance to curl with all their colleagues and try different positions. Coaches and volunteers will be available to help with the instruction session and during the game with strategy and delivery tips. In addition, there will be opportunities for some one-on-one coaching to help build your curling skills.

Brooms are available and participants are expected to wear either curling grippers (supplied) or shoes with soft rubber soles that are not worn on the street.

Don't worry if you have missed a couple of the first training sessions as the coaches are more than willing to review earlier themes for you.
