About the CurlON Clinics Program:

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 CurlON Clinics 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.

To service this very important segment, CurlON provides a turn-key, group instruction program to Member Clubs at a fee, presented by highly trained and experienced Instructors who follow approved technical lesson plans within current sport practices. Clinic attendees are provided instruction on basic delivery and brushing techniques, skill analysis, and strategy development. The CurlON CCP Club Hosted Clinics 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 CurlON Clinics Program 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)


  • Please be advised that although CurlON will work to confirm your request, it will very much depend on Instructor availability on the dates requested. CurlON may negotiate alternative arrangements with the club contact, if the primary request can not be facilitated as submitted.
  • A minimum 3-week lead time submission prior to the preferred hosting date is required, to allow for confirmation of available Instructors.
  • Clubs are to provide required video (large screen TV or projector) and audio system for off-ice sessions.
  • Clubs are to complete a separate online application REQUEST HERE>> BEGINNING AUGUST 1st! for each clinic being requested.
