Try Curling Now Showcase


Try Curling Now Showcase – New for 2020-21!

This program has been postponed until Spring 2021!

In an extended effort to help stimulate Club Membership, CurlON expands the Clinics Program this season to include a FREE TRY CURLING NOW Showcase. Up to 50 Member Clubs are eligible to receive a FREE clinic package, designed to attract new curlers and convert them to members.  The Club puts out the red carpet, while CurlON provides a trained Clinics Program Instructor to lead your selected club volunteers in a 1-day session, presented in two parts:

  1. The first session is a 4-hour Try Curling Now drop-in, for first-time curlers in your community to experience the game.
  2. The second session is a 2-hour Adult Learn to Curl (AL2C) program training clinic with your selected club volunteers, receiving the basic know-how to continue instructing new registrants, during a 6-week continuation program.

CurlON works cooperatively with the club to help ensure the goals and objectives of the injection program:
