For kids looking to try something different this winter, why not join the Youth Curling Program, hosted by the Kindersley Curling Club.
“We are running the program to give kids an opportunity to learn the basics of curling and hopefully grow the interest of the sport within our community,” says program coordinator David Korchinski.
With the program running from November 24th to March, youth ages 9 to 14 will have plenty of opportunities to learn the basics of curling, such as how to slide, hold the rock, the two different turns, basic strategy and sweeping. In addition to this, the club will be running various drills and mini-games to help further build these skills.
With the rise of COVID-19 cases in the province, the club has also increased health and safety measures. “We are requiring the participants to wear masks, and we will also be limiting how many curlers are on one sheet of ice. Brooms and sliders will still be provided, but we will also be taking the necessary precautions when it comes to sanitizing and cleaning the equipment after it is used,” says Korchinski. While these pieces of equipment are provided, curlers are asked to bring their own shoes and helmet.
