INTRODUCTION TO LITTLE ROCKS (Learn to Curl): AGES 6-11
Running from September 22 until November 20, the Introduction to Little Rocks (a Learn to Curl program) will provide those new to curling with a foundation of the basic skills needed to play the game: balance, delivery, sweeping. Once the program is completed, the curler can register for the Little Rocks Basic to continue developing these skills and learning new ones. The cost will be an additional $110.
LITTLE ROCKS BASIC: AGES 6-11
Little Rock Basic builds on the foundational skills learned in the Learn to Curl and introduces new ones. Younger curlers curl on half sheets; older Little Rocks graduate to throwing on full sheets. Based on the LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development Program), off-ice activities will help build Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) in areas such as balance and hand-eye coordination to support the on-ice development.
Items Required by Little Rockers
Warm layered clothing and gloves * Clean curling or running shoes (no street shoes will be allowed on the ice) * Curling brooms (are available) * Slider (we will provide tape) * Hockey helmet or Ice Halo (please note that head protection is highly recommended for all Little Rock curlers to provide additional safety)
Parents are encouraged to help by volunteering to be on the ice with the children. This is critical to help ensure the children’s enjoyment of the sport. Volunteers who commit to help with the program will be rewarded with a token for each session. These tokens can be redeemed at either of the Curl Moncton facilities.
