Cornwall’s popular and highly successful junior program, for new and returning curlers from age 7-20, begins instructional training on Sunday, Oct. 23, 2016. Teams who don’t take instructional curling can begin earlier (ice will be available starting Oct. 11).
The beginning curling program is divided into two sessions, before and after the Christmas break, and you can sign up for one or both. The program includes beginner instruction and, for those with more experience, the Novice category, normally in the 8-12 age category. There is also after-school team curling practice opportunities on weekdays. Junior curling wraps up just before March Break.
