Advanced Junior Team Program

2019/2020 Season

The North Hill Curling Club is excited to announce we will continue hosting the Curler’s Corner Advanced Junior Team Program.  The goal of the program is further developing Junior teams and their coaches.  The program is aimed at U18 teams representing the North Hill Community Curling Club in playdowns.

Teams will have 2 hours of practice ice every 3rd week.  If we have a guest speaker that week – teams with 2 hours of practice will either have their extra ice postponed a week or participate with the speaker at 6:30.  All schedules will be published in advance.  There is also a volunteer requirement for all participants. Each athlete must volunteer a minimum of two (2) Friday nights in the NHCC Junior program. 

We will be accepting a combination of teams and individual curlers who feel that they will benefit from and contribute to the program but have a valid reason for not participating as a team. We will accept a total of 24 athletes. We have capacity for a maximum of 8 individuals, as we have 2 coaches willing to step up.

If space is available, consideration will be given to the junior and U15 teams.   More detailed information on the program is available at the following site:

Curler’s Corner U18 Program

The Curler’s Corner Advanced Junior Team Program will run Tuesdays starting at 4:30 pm during the regular curling season, starting September 24, 2019.  Opening day will be Saturday, September 14, 2019.  All athletes and coaches are expected to participate in this full day program.  The schedule for the day will be provided to everyone that is accepted into the program.

    We are now playing with the 5 rock rule in the FGZ as per Curling Canada rules in effect starting this season.  Under the 5-Rock rule, teams are not permitted to eliminate their opponent's rocks that are sitting in the free guard zone until five stones have been played in every end.  Players can still hit the guards; they just are not allowed to knock them out of play.
