Of the 195 CurlON Member Clubs in Southern Ontario, many do not have trained or certified in-house instructors to provide formal training or coaching at the club level for curlers.
The Clinic Team Program is geared specifically towards INTERMEDIATE curlers. The CTP is NOT designed as a replacement for any Adult Learn to Curl (AL2C) program. As such, CurlON presents clinics after October 1st and will run until March 31.
CurlON is currently recruiting for Clinic Team Members
To service this very important segment, CurlON provides a turn-key, group instruction program to Member Clubs, presented by highly trained and experienced Instructors who follow approved CurlON technical lesson plans. Clinic attendees are provided instruction on basic delivery and brushing techniques, skill analysis, and strategy development. The CurlON CTP also offers specialized “stick delivery” learning and video analysis and with applied current technologies. As well, Clubs may build their own 3-hr clinic with selections from a variety of both on and off-ice topics.
Current Clinic Team districts include:
West Clinic Team (combined London, Guelph-Kitchener)
Hamilton-Niagara Clinic Team
Toronto – GTA Clinic Team
Muskoka District Clinic Team
Kawartha District Clinic Team
East Clinic Team (combined Kingston, Ottawa)
The Clinic Team Program consists of one or two team leaders and 4 to 6 instructors/clinicians in each of these districts. In the 2017-18 season, the CTP presented 88 clinics at 57 different CurlON Member Clubs.

Clinic Team Members are compensated for their time and reimbursed travel as per CurlON policy.
