Greetings and welcome to the Sherwood Park Curling Club's Adult Learn to Curl Program. The main theme of this program is to have fun learning the sport of curling combined in a relaxed environment.
The dates that this session will be using are as follows: Oct 14, 21, 28, Nov 4, 18, 25, Dec 2, and 9
. We currently have 15+ people registered for the program and would like to limit total registrations to a maximum of 32. The first day of instruction is October 14 at 4:00 PM. On this first night we will provide you with a great deal of information:
•what you will require for equipment
•how to prepare prior to going onto the curling ice surface
•the different parts of the ice surface
•all about the curling stones/rocks
•the basics of the curling slide techniques, and
•the curling turns that cause a curling rock to "curl".
Each of the following weeks will be used to break down specific parts of each of the above and more. Once you have a good grasp of the basics you will be formed into teams and practice what you have been taught in actual games. After the first couple of weeks of instruction, the following sessions will consist of warm-up, slide and throwing practice and additional instruction followed by a 3-4 end game. We would appreciate it if everyone would try to arrive by 3:45 pm for each session so that we can be organized, complete our pre-curling stretching and be on the ice by 4:00 pm.
If you have not purchased any equipment to date please do not prior to our first night. Our Tuck Shop will be offering you a package of equipment that will suit your requirements. In the meantime we will provide you with a gripper, sliders and brooms from our Junior Program. A flat sole type of running shoe will work well with the slider and grippers for the first session and will provide you with the necessary stability. Curling gloves are optional but some type of gloves will keep your hands warm during the instructional time. We recommend loose fitting clothing with a couple of layers on your upper body that you can remove when not required but will keep you warm when you are less active.
As I mentioned in the first sentence, our purpose is to teach you the fundamentals of curling in a relaxed fun atmosphere. I look forward to meeting all of you on Sunday.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
