The Getting Started league concept was pioneered at the Ottawa Curling Club and has since been implemented at curling clubs across Canada.
Curlers receive instruction and coaching every week throughout the season from October until April, on Tuesdays, 8:45-10:45 p.m. The high instructor-to-student ratio accelerates skill development.
The program has two levels of instruction. In Level 1 curlers learn the basic skills for the first 10 weeks, followed by games for the rest of the season. Instructors are available at all times - even during games - to help curlers learn essential skills they will need to play in games and bonspiels. After one season in Level 1, curlers move to Level 2 where curlers play games in a league format, with instructors available at all times to help with delivery technique and game strategy.
Equipment is supplied for the first half of the season. Wear comfortable clothing that stretches and dedicate a pair of shoes for curling to keep the ice clean.
