Youth Curling at Oakville Curling Club Still Accepting Participants and Volunteers
The Sunday Youth Program at the Oakville Curling Club is still accepting participants! If you know of any fully-vaccinated youth 12-18 who are interested in curling we would love to meet them! The Youth Program runs on Sundays 1:30 – 3:30 pm. There is an enthusiastic group of curlers who would love to share their passion for the sport with other curlers their age. No prior experience is required. They can sign up for the Youth League on the Club's website. This is a great program for anyone thinking about joining their high-school teams! Check the youth curling page on the website and register today!
Many of you have been asking what curling will look like in the upcoming season. The short answer is 'we don't fully know,' but our goal is get back to as close to 'curling-as-we-know-it' as possible. As such, and with the news of the province's new vaccination requirements for non-esssential businesses, the attached rules and protocols (click here) will be in place for the beginning of the curling season. Please note that these restrictions could change at any time, depending on public health advice.
In consultation with the membership of The Oakville Curling Club and with other curling facilities, and in light of the changing pandemic environment, the Board of Directors has recently approved a COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for members for the upcoming curling season.
For the 2021/2022 season, every member will be required to have received two doses of Health Canada approved Covid vaccine (any combination of two vaccines is acceptable) at least 14 days prior October 1st. Accommodations for people who cannot be vaccinated will be considered and may include mandatory masking and/or regularly submitting negative Covid tests.
The Club will require proof of vaccination status prior to the beginning of the regular curling season. This information will be viewed by Club Management only. Vaccination verification processes will be developed by a subcommittee of the Board and details about that process will be provided to you in the near future.
We need your help!
There are a number of volunteer opportunities available at the Club. Please read on for more information and reach out to the Club office if you have any questions.

Curling is a unique sport that requires both skill and strategy. It is often referred to as chess on ice. It is a lifelong sport that can be learned at any age. Whether playing in a fun league or in a competitive ladder the emphasis is always on sportsmanship and fair play. Being a social sport by nature, it is not uncommon for teams to socialize off the ice where lasting friendships are often made.
