The Ontario Curling Council and its member associations, the Northern Ontario Curling Association and the Ontario Curling Association – share a mission statement, which is “To promote, develop, and grow curling as a recreational and competitive sport in Ontario.”
We are excited to announce that, through the generous support of the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport’s Ontario Sport Recreation Communities Fund (OSRCF), we will focus on growing the sport through the province-wide implementation of an already successful Adult Learn to Curl Program. This special two-year project will focus on enhancing existing programming and resources, training membership developers in curling clubs across the entire province, and helping clubs implement programming.
This comprehensive program is designed to attract new curlers, train them and retain them as long term members. People are more likely to keep playing the sport if it is fun, reasonably priced, and they master the technique quickly. Unlike traditional one-day clinics, this program helps entry level and novice curlers become progressively better through continued weekly instruction by trained instructors.
