Learn to Curl Clinics
Two-Hour Clinic: Brief session for curlers who have never been on the ice before and want to feel what curling is all about. Includes a brief introduction to safety, delivery, sweeping and a 2-end game.
Four-Hour Clinic: Teaching new curlers all the basics of the game including delivery techniques and brushing. Recommended that you include a lunch break.
Stick Curling Clinic (2-4 Hours): This clinic can be offered to new curlers and would take 3-4 hours including orientation to the game, equipment, rules, etiquette, brushing and delivery technique. For seasoned curlers who are converting from a traditional slide delivery, a 2-hour clinic can be presented.
Skills Analysis Clinic (3 hours): Workshop would include review of delivery basics followed by individual on-ice analysis, review and fault correction. Small class size is recommended (<12)
Video Analysis Clinic (3 hours): Curlers see his/her delivery on video, the coach suggests corrections, practice time is given, and video is repeated. Class size should be small (<12) for maximum benefit.
Strategy Clinic (2-3 hours): Details of a strategy clinic will depend on the knowledge level of the group. Often the skill level is varied with both competitive and novice curlers in the same group. Coach will work with the curling facility to determine the best approach for the group that registers. (Some clinic options include: basic strategy, intermediate strategy, angles in curling and drag effect, performance based strategy, and team strategy.)
