General Info – Juniors & Little Rocks

PLEASE NOTE: We have updated our plans for our junior program this season. Some changes are reflected on this page, but for detailed information, please contact We are planning to run our junior program this season, but there will be changes due to COVID-19. Follow along on our Facebook page or email us if you wish to be put on our mailing list.

Saturdays: 12:30 pm to 4-4:30 pm (October to March – 15 to 18 weeks) – Two sessions (#1 – 12:30 pm to 2 pm / #2 – 2:30 pm to 4 pm – there will be some variation in the specific times to accommodate COVID-19 requirements)

The Royal City Curling Club has programs for children ages 6 and up.

We have “little rocks” for our smaller curlers, and move curlers up to full size rocks when they are ready to do so. We base our program on the skills and abilities of our curlers, so we try to group them together based upon their abilities than strictly by age. Our focus in this program is skill development, and to assist with that, the Royal City Curling Club tries to have a minimum of one coach for every eight curlers (and often this ration is closer to 1 coach for every 4 curlers).

Brooms and “sliders” are provided, and a limited number of used curling shoes may be available to be signed out for the season.

Please note that Curling Canada and Royal City CC recommends that curlers under the age of 12 and all new curlers wear a CSA-approved helmet for ice sports. Royal City CC does not provide helmets or have them available for rent.
