Curling for Kids

The curling club is starting up their youth leagues soon! Curling is a great sport that can be enjoyed by all ages.

The Little Rockers league is a fun, safety-first introduction to curling for kids age 5 – 10. It will run on Thursdays from October 20 – December 8 (except November 3), from 3:30 to 4:30. The cost is $30 per person. No special equipment is required, just warm layered clothes, a helmet, and clean indoor running shoes. Check out the Little_Rockers_2016 poster for more information.

For families with older kids, we also have a Junior league for kids 10 and up, plus youth and family drop-in curling on Mondays. No experience required—we’re happy to teach new people! Our website (www.nelsoncurling.ca) has information on all our leagues and programs.
