10 reasons Why your child should be A Junior Curler
Curling is an Olympic sport played on the ice between opposing teams of four players each. Not only is it a fun game for juniors, and a great way to get them involved in extra curricular activities, it also provides them with numerous benefits. Decision making, problem solving, sportsmanship, teamwork, etiquette, communication and leadership are but a few of the aspects of curling that provide valuable lessons. It also provides great exercise!
In an effort to pass on the benefits of curling to more young people, Evergreen Curling Club is actively seeking junior participants (ages 9 to 20) to curl 4:30 PM Tuesdays at Lloyd Center Ice Rink where they can compete against their peers.
Curling - a great new experience.
