Juniors Overview

Junior Program:

The North Hill Curling Club’s Junior Program runs Fridays starting at 4:30 pm during the regular curling season. The age range for this program is 7 through 18 with instruction for both Lite and regular rock curlers. Information on our program and the application form (which can be submitted at any time) is available here. The younger curlers with little to no experience, are provided with instruction throughout the season. Depending upon numbers, the little rockers may be assigned to either a 4:30-5:30 or a 5:30 – 6:30 time slot.

The more seasoned junior curlers who throw regular rocks, are initially instructed and then curl in a 2 hour span (4:30 to 6:30). Instruction and mentoring continues through the season; however, mostly the juniors are permitted to play.

Practice & Development:

For the more competitive North Hill junior curlers, who are on a team and thus desire/require more practice time with their coach, the North Hill Curling Club offers ice whenever there exists available ice (advance booking is required in all cases).

 Please Note: Practice Ice is free to Members of the NHCC Junior Program and to those who help with the NHCC  Jr. Program. If you are not affiliated with NHCC the cost is $15 per person.

The North Hill also offers funding as a means to encourage competitive development. This program and its application form is provided as a link and must be submitted early in the season. Teams applying must represent the North Hill in playdown events.

U18 Team Program

The North Hill Curling Club is starting a pilot program with the goal of further developing junior teams and their coaches.  The program is aimed at U18 teams representing the North Hill Community Curling Club in play downs.  The program is limited to six teams, however if space is available, consideration will be given to the junior and U15 teams.

The overall goal of the program is to provide support and further development of the athletes, teams, and coaches.  While development is the goal, NHCC wants to ensure a fun, supportive environment.

The program is scheduled for every Tuesday evening from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.  During the two hours, there will be a combination of both practice and games each week.  During the first few weeks, the focus will be on team practice and preparation before scheduling games.

U18 Teams Bonspiel:

The North Hill Club instituted a youth bonspiel in 1997 having both a Junior and Intermediate (now known as Juvenile) divisions. Our intent was to promote competitive curling among our youth thus developing their skills. After the first ten years, it was determined that several junior-age bonspiels were now available. Consequently, the Club decided to focus on the younger age categories.
