What should you bring?
All equipment will be provided, including brooms and sliders. Participants should wear warm, loose fitting clothing. Be sure to bring clean shoes with you—don’t wear them prior to arrival so that the soles are clean (we try to keep the ice clean of all debris). The shoes should have a good grip (running shoes are fine), and please do NOT wear flat soled shoes or anything with a raised heel. You will need to wear protective head gear for this class. You can either bring a helmet with you or can use one of the club's. Gloves are also recommended. 

What will you do?
  • Get an overview of the game and on-ice safety
  • Learn delivery basics (how to throw and sweep the stone) 
  • Play a mini-game at the end of the instruction
The session will begin with a brief off-ice introduction, followed by ~2 hours on the ice with instructors and a little social time after.

Beverages and snacks are available for purchase at the club bar—but be aware that it is CASH ONLY! Canadian money preferred (we suggest having some Canadian dollars on hand). US dollars are accepted, but at par (ie: 5$CAD=$5USD).

Fill out the registration form to reserve your spot.
