FREE CLINIC OFFERING
The FREE 3-hour Skills Analysis Clinic is best suited to a curler with 2+ years of experience. For traditional or stick curlers, this clinic will review delivery fundamentals with an increased focus on skill analysis/fault correction. After technical review of each aspect of the delivery, participants will have an opportunity to practice the skill and receive feedback for improvement. The majority of this clinic will be conducted on the ice, so dress for cold. Time will be reserved at the conclusion of the clinic for additional feedback from clinicians on any aspect of the delivery. Registrants may select ONE ONLY free clinic for the season.

YOU MAY TAKE YOUR FREE CLINIC AT ANY OF THE LOCATIONS LISTED

READ THIS: The CurlON Free Clinic Series is not for new curlers with no previous curling experience. It is expected that all registrants have previously completed a Learn-to-Curl program at their club or in some form, and are participating to receive a refresher lesson. If it is determined onsite that a registrant is a new curler, they may be asked to leave the clinic. The clinic curriculum, timing and instructor ratio is predetermined with this qualification in mind.

PAID CLINIC OPTIONS
Registrants will also have the option to select from a variety of additional clinics scheduled throughout the event. All available optional clinics scheduled at each Free Clinic Series Stop, will populate on the registration page you select for your free clinic. Optional clinics are:

VIDEO ANALYSIS – $30.00
This 3-hour clinic is largely conducted on ice, with a short off-ice delivery review preceding on-ice analysis. Participants will have an opportunity to practice their delivery, be videotaped and immediately receive technical feedback. After opportunity to correct identified delivery faults/areas for improvement, participants will have an opportunity again to be videoed and receive feedback. 

STRATEGY REVIEW CLINIC – $20.00
This 2-hour off-ice clinic will review some of the basic concepts of strategy. This clinic is suitable for curlers with little to moderate strategic knowledge or experience, or front end players looking to learn more about strategy. This clinic will address the three different types of strategy, how to employ these strategies with appropriate shot selection, factors that influence strategy, and how to play to your team’s strengths. There will be opportunity to engage in discussions regarding different strategic scenarios.

INTERMEDIATE STRATEGY CLINIC – $20.00
This 2-hour off-ice clinic will address intermediate strategy and would be appropriate for curlers with vice/skip experience. This clinic will build on the basic concepts of strategy by introducing concepts like shot tolerance, end plans, game plans, angles, drag effect and will provide time to actively engage through discussions regarding different shot scenarios.

*With the exception of RA Centre, all on-ice clinics are offered at 9:00AM and 1:30pm daily. All strategy sessions are 10:00AM and 2:30PM. The registration system automatically shuts down clinic options on the event schedule when maximum availability has been reached.

DISCLAIMER: You are being instructed on an 8-1 student/instructor basis for all on-ice sessions. Video clinics are 6-1. This is not like playing the game. You will be standing while others are provided feedback. It gets cold… dress appropriate and don’t say we didn’t warn you!
