The Springbank Junior Program is for curlers ages 8-18 with all levels of experience.  Our program runs Saturday morning from 10am until 12pm and is designed to introduce novice junior curlers to curling and to teach them the current rock delivery and sweeping techniques.

The first hour is instruction, focusing on rock release and delivery.  The second hour is a curling game to allow the juniors an opportunity to practise what they have learned - depending on the attendance we either have pick-up games mixing curlers of all experience levels or have games between curlers of similar experience level.

It runs from late-September to early-March, and the cost is $130.00 per curler.  

Curling equipment - grippers, sliders and brooms are available for use, free of charge. Helmets are required.

In the world of curling, we are in one of the most exciting parts of the season. With the Scotties underway, the upcoming Olympic games and then the Brier being hosted in Lethbridge, there is plenty of competitive curling to keep us entertained. Watching these games on TV and hearing how the curlers got their start and what they have experienced is nothing short of inspirational. Here at Springbank, we are fortunate to have plenty of leagues for everyone from the well- seasoned through to the junior curlers. We challenge ourselves and enjoy the social aspect of the game. We often find ourselves telling the stories about how we got started, the great shots made and of course the ones missed. Yet, there is nothing more invigorating than watching kids step out on to ice for the first time, wondering what their future could hold and what stories they too might share one day.

In the fall of 2021 Curling Alberta launched the new two-part initiative in 50 curling clubs across the province to bring kids aged 9-15 onto the ice for an introduction to the wonderful game of curling.

The Ready to Rock program has two-parts. Here at Springbank on January 29th, the free Try-it Event took place. Instructor Ashton Skrlik, lead from Alberta’s up and coming Skrlik ladies’ team, led 10 kids as they stepped out on to the ice. The two-hour event provided an overview of the game. The kids got to try a little of everything from throwing a rock, sweeping, and scoring and even learned little bit of strategy. They too left with stories about their first rocks thrown and swept. A few even said, it was a little harder than it looks, a sentiment uttered by even the most experienced. Skrlik shared her recent experience in the Alberta Scotties in Grande Prairie.

The Learn to Curl program is a progressive eight-week program with over 16 kids registered. Each week they will focus on learning a new skill and gain a base line understanding of the strategy of the game.

Volunteers are a key part of this program. There were five coaches who supported Instructor Skrlik for the Try-it Event. Our thanks go out to Carissa, Sarah and Howard Backus, Colin Strem and Cori vanKeulen. The Learn to Curl program will be led by Club Coach and Springbank’s Junior Program Coordinator, Carissa Backus. She will supported by a team of coaches that have stepped on to ice from various Springbank leagues.
