    This ten week Learn to Curl (LTC) program is aimed at people that have not curled before but would be interested in trying the sport, and also novice curlers who would like to increase their curling skill and knowledge.

    The LTC course has been developed by the Canadian Curling Association (CCA) and supported by the Ottawa Valley Curling Association (OVCA). Unlike the traditional one day clinic, the program helps entry level and novice curlers get progressively better through continued weekly instruction and skill development. By end of the course the students will have a very good insight into the sport of curling.

    The Learn to Curl (LTC) program covers all aspects of the game from technique and strategy to the physics of the sport. The course will include the etiquette and the social side of curling. The Richmond Curling Club will provide LTC students with foot grippers and sliders as well as brooms for the duration of the course. In general, each session will consist of approximately 30 minutes of off-ice instruction and 90 minutes of on-ice instruction/practice per session. There will be an experienced curler assigned to each sheet of ice.

    The course will run Sundays for ten sessions starting October 15th; 10:30 am to 12:30. The cost of the instructional course is $160.00. Following the course, participants may join a league for an additional fee ($160 for 1 game per week, $195 for 2+ games per week) if space is available.

Total Costs:
$160 Instructional Program Oct. to Dec.
$320 Instructional Program Oct. to Dec. + 1 league per week Jan. to Apr.
$355 Instructional Program Oct. to Dec. + 2 or more leagues per week Jan. to Apr.
