All curlers are asked to read and respect the Return To Play Guidelines.

Novice League summary

Here’s an opportunity for newbies to get into the game, or for those with a little experience to learn to skip in a low stress environment.

First and second year members are invited to register for a Novice League:

Tuesdays  6:30 – 8 pm FULL
Oct 20, 27, Nov 3, 10, 17, 24

Saturdays  1 – 3 pm CANCELLED
Oct 17, 24, 31

The emphasis is on learning to curl by playing, although we usually only end up curling an end or two.

There will be a certified coach providing instruction so don’t worry if you didn’t make it to a Learn to Curl session.  Stick curlers are always welcome.

Tuesdays and Saturdays are two different “streams”, with Saturdays being more condensed. You’re welcome to attend both Tuesdays and Saturdays as long as you don’t mind some repetition. The basics of the game will be covered as well as etiquette, equipment, delivery, sweeping, strategy, and teamwork.

Cost is a $20 membership plus $5 per game and all equipment is provided.  Register by emailing kaslocurling@gmail.com, or sign up on the sheet at the club.  Payment can be made just before the game.

Attendance at all games is not required!  However, these are not drop-in sessions.  Just like in a regular curling league, please let us know if you can’t make a date so we can find a spare to take your place.

Learn to Curl & Practice Ice

All curlers are asked to read and respect the Return To Play Guidelines.

Learn to Curl (drop-in, free, equipment provided, age 16+)

You will be instructed in the basics of the game with an emphasis on learning delivery of the rock. Stick curling is also taught, so if you can walk then you can curl!

Practice Ice

Practice ice is free to all members.

Tue Oct 6: 12:30 – 2:30 pm, 6:30 – 8 pm

Thu Oct 8: 12:30 – 2:30 pm (one sheet only after 1:30 pm), 6:30 – 8 pm

Registration 6:30-8:30 pm on Friday, October 2

We’re keeping it low-key this year because of COVID so we’re encouraging registration by email to kaslocurling@gmail.com, especially for returning members.

But that doesn’t work so well for folks new to the club, so you’re welcome to come down this Friday night between 6:30 and 8:30 pm to get to know us, or bring friends that are curious about curling. If you just want to come down and take a few slides then you can do that too.

Please register by October 4 if you wish to play in the Thursday/Friday league, either by email or on Friday night. Let us know your teammates or skip or if you have a partial team. If you’re looking to join a team, then tell us your preferred position. We will start finalizing teams after October 4 and plan to start Thursday/Friday night games on October 15.

All curlers are also asked to read and respect the Return To Play Guidelines.
