ECC's Curling 101 is a 5-week instructional league providing in-depth instruction in the basics of the sport with a goal of allowing students to join other leagues within the club and feel comfortable doing so. Some sessions include a novice league.
The course will cover curling etiquette, roles, delivery, sweeping and strategy. The lesson series features both off-ice and on-ice instruction and some coached game-play. For the 2018-19 fall and winter sessions, Curling 101 will be combined with a novice league, where experienced players will help coach as they play.
Cost for an 10-week series is $235 per person or $213 for a 9-week series. No experience necessary, and the instruction presented in this league is appropriate for curlers with up to 2 years of experience. Lesson series are typically offered on Mondays from 7:15-10:00pm (or until people tucker out) or Sundays 11:15-2:00pm.
Completion of Curling 101 is recommended (but not required) before curling in a member league. Completion of a 2-hour introductory (Learn-to-Curl or similar) lesson is recommended.
