What are the levels?

Level 1 – Beginner

This is the BEST starting point for a young curler. Starting as young as 7, these clinics are suited for beginning curlers up to 11 years of age. It is an excellent atmosphere to introduce juniors to the beginning basics.

Level 2 – Intermediate

This program is designed for young curlers that have reached the specific skill / performance benchmarks in the Hit the Button program. In the Double Takeout program the young curlers will continue to develop the FUNDAMENTALS of curling and the performance benchmarks will include strong mechanics with a traditional curling stone. Curlers successfully completing this program are ready to curl.

Level 3 – Advanced

After reaching the specific skill / performance benchmarks in the Double Takeout program the Hit and Roll program begins to focus on fine tuning the delivery mechanics, become an effective sweeper, understand teamwork and refine curling strategy.
