THE LITTLE ROCKS
The Little Rocks program has been operating successfully at the Brockville Country Club for many years and continues to grow. The Club offers children from 6 to 11 years of age, a fun way to learn the sport of curling. The program is led by BCC Director of Sport Operations manager - Doug Wark with Club President Andrew Bischof and a team of dedicated Club member coaches. Our coaches provide instruction to the Little Rocks on how to slide, sweep and deliver smaller curling rocks. Safety on ice is also a big part of their training. The BCC Little Rocks Program runs on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 to 2:00 pm.
All Little Rocks are welcome; whether a BCC member or non-member.
Our Bantam program is being led by experienced certified coach Katherine Brown. We welcome children to graduate and join from playing in the little rocks program but also welcome new bantam age kids to start as novices. The Bantam program is for kids aged 12-16. The program runs on Sundays from 2:30-4:00pm. Ice will also be made available for additional practice and instruction on Tuesday's after school from 3:30-5pm. Katherine will be coaching the kids on all aspects of skill developement including, sliding, sweeping, stategy, competition/game training and fitness.
How to get Started:
Ideally new kids join for the start of the program on October 22. New kids will be welcomed in to give the sport a try during our "free kids promotion" scheduled for Sunday Oct 22 and November 4th. In order to coach the kids through our planned skill aquisition training we recommend you try to join at the start of the program. Otherwise it is possible to join later but "catch up" learning will be needed.
We provide just about everything the kids will need including brooms, tape or sliders. We recommend the kids wear a helmet (not provided) and wear warm clothing that is comfortable. Clean shoes (indoor gym type) are required. No dirty outdoor shoes allowed on the ice thanks.
Parents will be required to sign a waiver in order to permit their kids onto the ice.
Curling is a great winter sport for all ages – start them young. Join the BCC Little Rocks and Bantam Programs.
