The Nelson Curling Centre is putting a big focus on youth by offering a variety of affordable programs.

The Capital One Rocks and Rings Program was introduced to Nelson elementary schools last year with instructors visiting schools to offer this fun and exciting off-ice introductory experience with curling.  School visits will continue this year where requested.

Another exciting new program is the Canadian 2-for-1 Youth League. It will be offered to youth ages 12 and up on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the very affordable rate of $60 (for non-members) including the use of equipment.

This league will initially involve games and on-ice instructions while working itself into scheduled games throughout the season. Registration is this Saturday, however, it will remain open throughout the year for new and interested youth. Fun events will also occur throughout the season.

The junior program has been in existence for a number of years and continues to be a popular event for young people.  This program is held after school on Mondays and Thursdays from 4 to 5:30 p.m. and is open to new registrants throughout the year. Fee is                                                  $65.

A one day camp will be held on Saturday, December 10 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Optimist International and the Nelson Curling Centre will be hosting this development camp for children ages 8 to 12. Lunch and snacks will be provided.  The fee is $10.

If financial assistance is needed KidSport may be able to assist with funding for these programs.
