Why Curling for Juniors?
Curling is an inclusive sport that ANYONE can excel at, and we’re super excited to be offering young people the chance to learn new skills, build confidence, and develop leadership and teamwork abilities through participation in this fantastic and fast-growing sport. Curling is a game built on a tradition of sportsmanship and sociability, where no one sits out, every team member is essential, and every game begins and ends with a hearty handshake.
We provide all the equipment your child needs to get started.
- Wear warm clothes – hats and gloves strongly encouraged – Kids should wear clean sneakers on the ice.
- All other curling equipment will be provided.
- All Lead instructors will have passed a background check and completed USA Olympics Safe Sport training.
- Caregivers are welcome to stay during Junior curling. The warm room will be open for parents during this time. For our Red Crabs (age 8-12) caregivers must drop-off and pick-up in the warm room. Blue Crabs (age 13-18) may arrange to meet their parents in the parking lot. Contact the instructors if other special arrangements are required.
- Parents are always invited to help out on the ice if they so desire. Please email [email protected] to let us know you are willing to help out so we can sign you up and send you the Safe Sport link that is required of all volunteers to complete before helping on the ice.
- Waivers must be completed for anyone who will be on the curling ice.
- Snacks will be provided by Chesapeake Curling for the first session.
