Youth Curling

The Oakville Curling Club has a large and thriving youth membership.  In order to encourage our youth members to keep curling one of their life-long physical and social activities, the club offers two entry points into the sport.  The first being a Learn to Curl Program which is geared towards two different age groupings.  The groupings take into consideration the curlers age – both physical and developmental.  The second entry point is the Youth Curling League.  This League is for participants who have had experience in the sport and can step on the ice ready to play.

We also offer competitive summer league curling for youth teams, youth bonspiels and our fantastic summer camp.

Youth Curling League

The Sunday Youth Curling League will be open to all youth curlers aged 12-18 who have had experience on the ice, either through the club's Learn-to-Curl program or another club's youth programs. The main criteria for participating in this league will be that the curler can confidently, consistently with control deliver a full-size rock the length of the sheet. If this is a challenge, then the Youth Learn to Curl Program is the recommended start point.

The Sunday Youth Curling League will consist of 30 minutes of instruction (may be on-ice or off-ice) and a 90-minute game. Teams will vary from week to week, so you don’t have to worry about not attending on any given Sunday. Focused instruction will be geared towards the curlers age and experience (badge levels will be used to help divide up the groups). The instruction will focus on technical skills as well as curling etiquette, sportsmanship, respect, strategy and rules of play in a fun and social setting.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes beforehand to change, warmup, and chat with your team, with the same time allowance after each game to socialize with your team and opposition.

Participants will need:

  • Carry in CLEAN and rubber-soled shoes (not worn to the rink – this is mandatory).  Curling shoes are not required, but great if you have them.
  • Wear or bring loose fitting or stretchy, comfortable layers suitable for 2.0 hours of play in a 4C (degrees Celsius) arena. Jeans are not recommended.
  • All curlers are required to wear regular rubber-soled running shoes (no slider or tape) or curling shoes with 2 grippers while not throwing stones.
  • Non-slip gloves or mitts.
  • Helmets are encouraged for curlers with fewer than 3 years experience.

Regardless of knowledge or curling experience, all parents and guardians are encouraged to participate in program supervision and coaching! Please contact Marg at the email below to let us know you're interested in helping out!

Time: Sundays 1:15pm - 3:15pm

Youth Learn to Curl Programs

The Youth Learn to Curl Programs will be divided into two age groupings and will run for four weeks.  After successful completion of the Learn to Curl, the curlers will have the opportunity to join the Sunday Youth Curling League (space permitting). The Learn to Curl Programs are based on the newly released Curling Canada U12 and U18 LEARN TO CURL programs.  

 

U15/U18 LEARN TO CURL:

This program is focussed on the U15/U18 curler. It is geared towards curlers age 12 to 17.

“Curling Canada’s U18 Learn to Curl program is designed to introduce teens to the sport of curling. The objective is to have fun, increase physical activity, promote curling as a life-long recreational sport and provide competitive opportunities for participants who show interest and want to remain Competitive for Life. The program is based on Curling Canada’s Long Term Curler Development Framework.”

Each session is 1.5 hours in length and will include both on and off ice time. Helmets for this group are recommended, but not mandatory.

 

U12 LEARN TO CURL:

This program is focussed on the U12 (aka Little Rock Curler).  It is geared towards curlers age 7 to 11.  

“Curling Canada’s U12 Learn to Curl program is designed to introduce children to the sport of curling.  The objective is to have fun, increase physical literacy with key fundamental movement skills (FMS), follow Curling Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework and begin sport specific techniques.”

Throughout the course of the program, the groups will be moving through circuits or stations to learn various aspects of curling.  The focus is on FUN as well as learning the game.  These sessions will be 1.5 hours in length.  

HELMETS ARE MANDATORY FOR THIS GROUP.  As per Oakville Curling Club Policy, all participants are required to wear a properly fitted and secured (as per the direction of the manufacturer) helmet certified by the CSA (Canadian Standards Association) in the curling rink.  Other forms of headgear are not sufficient.  We are following the recommendations supported by the National Canadian Curling governing body.
