Academy of Curling Camp

Join us (and a couple of peeps you might recognize below) September 5 – 8, 2019 and start your season off on the right foot by working on key elements of the game: technique, delivery, sweeping, strategy, team dynamic, and more!


North Hill CC is excited to host Russ Howard, Mary Anne Arsenault and Grant Odishaw from the Academy of Curling from September 5 – 8, 2019.

These clinics are for the club curler, not for competitive curlers, and there is something for everyone to learn!


We are running two identical 1.5 day sessions this year (different than last year). There will be on- and off- ice sessions covering the following:

  • 4 Stages of delivery (stance, park position, line of delivery, grip/turns/release)
  • Delivery drills
  • Drag effect / angles
  • Weight control (hits and draws)
  • Brushing / how to be effective / techniques
  • Strategy (let’s get you thinking!)
  • Team communication
  • Reading the release
  • Using the stopwatch
  • Strategy – going a little deeper
  • Season & practice planning
  • Mental preparation / Sport psychology


Because we are running identical sessions, you can choose which dates work for you! There will be one evening (5 – 9 pm) and a full day session for each.

Thursday September 5:  5 pm – 9 pm AND Saturday September 7, 9 am – 5 pm

Friday September 6:  5 pm – 9 pm AND Sunday September 8, 9 am – 5 pm

COST: $240 per person | lunch on the weekend is included


Whether you attend the day sessions or not, you’re welcome to join us for our Saturday evening banquet. Tickets are $30 each and are NOT included with your registration. The fabulous Russ Howard will be our keynote speaker, informing and entertaining us!
