The RMCC LEARN TO CURL Program
Focused on Fun, Fitness & Fundamentals, this innovative, dynamic & flexible program offers an enjoyable series of lessons to properly learn how to play the game and/or to enhance existing skill levels. The program is targeted to new as well as more seasoned curlers and is run by our Director of Curling Development, Martin Cavanagh ChPC, a Sports Canada chartered professional multisport coach.
The training takes place at the Club and involves off-ice theory as well as on-ice training and actual games to practice your skills under the helpful supervision of our coaches.
With this top-notch training, you’ll learn to curl the right way and become a life-long fan of the game!
The flexible 6-session course is offered at the reasonable price of $150. You’ll have fun as you acquire a new skill and to top it off, if you decide to continue playing and join RMCC, the cost of the sessions will be applied against your first-year membership dues.
