Junior Program

The Welland Curling Club’s Junior Program offers a vibrant, welcoming and cost efficient afternoon of fun and instruction for both boys and girls ages 5 to 20.

Scheduled on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 to 3:00 pm, the program provides a complete introduction to the game. The curling is recreational but competition is available to those that show interest. Many of our juniors have advanced through the ranks and have competed in various competitions with great success.

Teams are assigned every week recognizing age, experience and promoting socialization. Most teams are coed but periodically they will be gender specific. There is something for everyone. To ensure players are at similar skill levels the program is divided into the following sections:

  • Little Rockers section is for ages 5 – 8. They use our mini light rocks and curl for 1 hour with no scoring. We endeavor to have at least one instructor per sheet of ice. The session will include a warm-up, instruction and game.
  • U12 (under 12 years of age) section is for ages 9 – 11. They use the full sized equipment and curl for 1.5 hours. Positions are assigned by age and experience. The goal is to have 2 instructors per sheet of ice with time designated for teaching skills.
  • U15, U18, U21 section is for ages 12 – 20. They use the full sized equipment and curl the full 2 hours. The three age groups will often be mixed together so that the younger age groups can be mentored by the older, more experienced curlers. Opportunities are available to compete in Ontario Curling Association competitions. We endeavor to have 1 instructor to supervise during ice time and the experienced curlers are encouraged to provide leadership. Instruction is given when needed and requested. 
  • Student Club Membership is for any junior age 14 through 20 who wish, to not only participate in the Junior Program but also play in the Club’s adult leagues.

On Sunday afternoons when the instruction and games are finished, the curlers head to the Club’s lounge with their team and opposition to enjoy hot chocolate prepared by volunteer parents.

All equipment is supplied but participants must provide clean dry thick soled running shoes and warm loose fitting clothing. Used and new equipment is available for purchase.
