School Programs

The Powell River Curling Club wishes to extend an invitation

to your school to participate in the School Curling Program held at our facility. This program is designed for students from Grades 5 to 12, and lessons can be scheduled from mid-October through to the end of February.

 

Curling is a non-contact sport, with a strong focus on

sportsmanship and team work. Success in curling depends upon cooperation on the ice,

game strategy and often a bit of luck, rather than on physical size or natural athletic

ability.

 

Curling is commonly played simply as a social and recreational game, but for many

it can become a very competitive game with its best athletes competing for medals at the

World Curling Championships and Winter Olympics.

 

Curling is part of Sport BC’s championship sport program which offers high school students the opportunity to compete in inter-school competitions, bonspiels and Provincial High School Championships for both boys and girls. Our program can help students to identify their interest in curling.

 

The 4 pillars of our program are:

  •  To introduce the sport of curling through the existing Physical Education Program (a sport
  • that they might otherwise not have the opportunity to try out on their own)
  •  To assist in the development of the students’ physical and social skills
  •  To encourage sportsmanship and teamwork
  •  To enable students to participate in a life long sport

All of our main curling instructors are National Coaching Certification Program trained,

with volunteer club members and parents as helpers. Teachers are strongly encouraged to

take part in the lessons with their students.

We hope you will consider encouraging your schools to include the sport of curling as part of their extra-curricular physical education programs, along with other activities currently offered.

 

The program we use requires a minimum of 4 lessons. Some teachers

and schools like to have their students take part in up to 6 weeks

total so they have a chance to enjoy game situations after they

have learned the necessary skills.

 

Please call for costs of per

student per visit to the curling club – the money received is put back

into the Junior Curling Program for equipment purchases and

instruction. One hour lessons are offered on Wednesdays between 9

am and 3 pm on a first come first served basis.

 

If you wish to participate in this program or require further information, please contact us at prcc@telus.net or call and leave a message at the Powell River Curling Club at 604-483-9551 and one of us will get back to you.
