The Youth Curling program at ESPCC is a very active program focusing on introducing young people to curling as a recreational and social sport, developing the skills of young curlers and FUN! Curling is a great way to meet people and make friends, while learning a sport you can play for a lifetime.
We offer comprehensive programs emphasizing funs, skills development and learning and playing the game.
Curlers are encouraged to enter one or more bonspiels to enjoy the social and competitive aspects of the game. For information on youth curling bonspiels, click here.

IMPORTANT: The success of the youth curling program depends on the involvement of volunteers. Parents are encouraged to sign up for 2- 3 (or more if you like!) sessions over the season – there are spots for both on-ice and off-ice volunteer opportunities. A sign – up sheet will be available on registration night for parents to choose their preferred dates.
Little Rocks (ages 7 - 10) SUNDAYS 3:15 pm
The emphasis is on fun while learning the fundamentals and etiquette of curling. Instruction is emphasized throughout the year, particularly in the first sessions and game play is gradually introduced.
The Little Rock program depends on parent volunteers to run successfully. Please note: the number of curlers we can accept in the program depends on the number of volunteers we have. Curlers from the junior program are welcome to volunteer with little rocks. There will be a volunteer information session the first week of curling to familiarize volunteers with duties and responsibilities.
