Call for Volunteers: Curling 101 / High School Learn to Curl instructors here at Cornwall, plus Canada Games statisticians

The following volunteer opportunities are coming up within the sport of curling:

  1. 2023 Canada GamesStatisticians

Curling will have three events at the 2023 Canada Games: Female and Male (four-person, U18) and Mixed Doubles (U20).  The events will be played at the Silver Fox Entertainment Complex (Female and Male four-person) and the Montague Curling Club (Mixed Doubles).  The curling events will run over the two weeks of the Games (Week 1 is Feb. 18 – 25, 2023 and Week 2 is Feb. 27 – Mar. 5), with Female four-person week one and male four-person and mixed doubles week two.

All three events will require a number of volunteers for a number of positions.  We are currently looking for people who are interested in being a statistician.  We will be running a virtual statistician training session near the end of December with the goal of having those trained doing stats at the Provincial Scotties Tournament of Hearts (Jan. 5-9, 2022) in Montague and/or the Canada Games Trials (Feb. 2-6, 2022) in Summerside.

If you are interested in being a statistician for the 2023 Canada Games please contact Amy Duncan (aduncan@sportpei.pe.ca or 902-368-4208).

  1. Curling 101 (Dec. 18 2021) / High School Learn to Curl (selected Fridays Jan. 14-Apr. 1 2022)Instructors

Curl PEI has secured funding to offer a High School Learn to Curl Program here at the Cornwall Curling Club.  They will be promoting the program by hosting a Curling 101 session for high school students on December 18 from 3:30-4:30 pm (and 4:30-5:30 pm, if needed). This is a one-hour introduction to the sport and an opportunity for participants to throw a few rocks.  The 10-week Learn to Curl Program will start in the new year, on the following Fridays from 4:00-5:30 pm: Jan. 14, 22, 28; Feb. 4, 11; March 4, 11, 18, 25 and Apr. 1.

Curl PEI has a lead instructor already in place and is looking for some on-ice instructors to help her out.  Each week they will need up to 7 people (it does not need to be the same 7 each week) to ensure the program is a success, If you are interested in helping but are not available for all the sessions, Curl PEI should be able to make it work for you.

If you are interested in volunteering with the Curling 101 and/or the Learn to Curl Program please contact Amy Duncan (aduncan@sportpei.pe.ca or 902-368-4208).
