Youth Curling

 INTRODUCTION

The Youth Curling Program 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. 

ESPCC offers comprehensive programs emphasizing fun, skills development and learning and playing the game.  Our youth programs will be run on Sundays from October 2nd, 2022 until March 26th, 2023, with a two week break during the Christmas school break.

ESPCC is happy to announce the addition of our new Youth On-Ice Curling Coordinator for the 2022 – 2023 curling season.  Amanda Duff will coordinate and facilitate the Bantam and Little Rocks curling programs throughout the season and provide assistance to the development of our Junior Inter-club league teams.  Amanda has 25 years of curling experience.  She’s competed at high performance levels as a junior and has continued curling recreationally in a women’s league while acting as an assistant coach for a competitive junior team.  She is energetic, organized, creative, and active.  We are very confident in her ability to develop and support our youth curlers in their curling journey.

The season will begin with each team participating in three weeks of clinics, one on one coaching with a qualified instructor.  These sessions are designed to prepare the teams for the curling season with the refinement of skills, technique and strategy using a combination of intensive drills and game play.  Team positions will be finalized during the clinics.  Additional practice sessions will occur during the curling season, as required.  Teams will then participate in a round robin tournament each week with junior curling teams throughout the surrounding area, with play-offs to end the season.

We require volunteers with curling experience to help out as coaches during the season for our inter-club teams.   Ideally, we would like two volunteers per team to alternate games throughout the season.  Coaching guidance/direction will be provided at the beginning of the season.
