Kids can try curling at fun introductory session

Kids aged 9-12 get the chance to learn the roaring game this Saturday at the Smithers curling rink.

Children aged nine to 12 are being invited to try curling in a fun and relaxed session.

An Optimist ‘I Rock the House’ Curling Camp is being hosted by the Smithers Memorial Curling Club from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 25.

Children will learn from experienced junior curlers and certified curling coaches the basics of this sport on ice.

“This fun session will get kids out on the ice and learning about a new sport. It’s a great opportunity for kids to be active and have fun,” said Melissa Sim, Curl BC Participation manager.

The cost is $20 and includes lunch. To register your kids, visit curlbc.ca/i-rock-the-house or call 604-333-3620.

After the session, your child can learn more about regular curling opportunities in the community.
