Oshawa Curling Club Little Rocks program offers curling instruction for children who range in age from 7 to 12  (as of Dec 31).  Our Little Rock curlers use "Lite" rocks that are made of teflon and weigh only 22 pounds.  The curling season runs for more than 20 weeks from October through to April and is probably the most inexpensive sport there is for a child!  A season of curling will typically cost less than $200 per child!
 
The focus is on Fun, Friendship, Etiquette, and Safety while learning curling skills that will last a lifetime. Children are encouraged to stay after curling for a cup of hot chocolate with their teammates!
 
Parents play a very important role in their child's curling experience and we stress that it is important for a parent or guardian to remain at the club during the curling lessons to provide support and encouragement and to learn about the game of curling.  We encourage parents to help out on the ice or with our program's administration , regardless of their knowledge or experience with the sport. 
 
To learn more so parents can help their child when they have questions, the Canadian Curling Association has some great information about curling:

What do I need to get started in curling?
  • Curling clubs always provide the playing surface and the stones. 

  • The Oshawa Curling Club has a large number of spare brooms available for our Little Rock curlers and their parents to borrow.

  • It is not necessary to purchase curling shoes. New curlers should bring a pair of INDOOR clean, dry, soft rubber-soled running shoes. Please do not WEAR the shoes that you will wearing on the ice to the club as we need to keep our ice clean and free of dirt and road-salt. We will use a special type of tape to cover the bottom of one shoe in order to simulate the hard, sliding surface of a curling shoe.

  • For safety, curlers are not allowed on the ice without 2 grippers!!  We require that curlers purchase a pair of grippers (also called anti-sliders) to fit their child's dedicated running shoes. The cost is approximately $35/pair. Rob Steele of Last Rock Curling Co. will be onsite Oct 14 in the afternoon for gripper purchases.  www.lastrock.ca
    • For the TRIAL SESSION ONLY, these grippers may be borrowed from the club.
    • Returning curlers are reminded to check their current set of grippers to ensure they fit and are not worn out. Remember that it is important to keep our ice clean.

  • Please wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes. Jeans or tight-fitting pants are not recommended, but track pants are a great idea. Dressing the upper body in layers is a good idea as the playing area is cold, but after some activity on the ice, curlers may feel pretty warm. If you are particularly sensitive to the cold, a hat is a good idea.  Gloves or mitts are also very practical.  

  • Per the Canadian Curling Foundation's recommendation, Oshawa Curling Club's Little Rock program requires that the wearing of CSA-approved headgear (helmet) for ice sports is mandatory for anyone under the age of 12. The type of helmet required would be one such as worn for skating or snow boarding.  The curling club does not provide helmets so these must be purchased by curlers -- even for the Trial Session. 

          Please reference this:  https://www.curling.ca/about-the-sport-of-curling/helmet-use-recommendations/

            and http://www.parachutecanada.org/injury-topics/topic/C8

       The Oshawa Curling Club will be requiring youth curlers to sign a customized version of the Waiver(s) that is found on this webpage www.curling.ca/about-the-sport-of-curling/helmet-use-recommendations/ .
