Little Rocks (U12)

Welcome to East York Little Rocks!

PROGRAM UPDATE (as of February 22/23):

Our program is full for the 2022-2023 season.

We are organizing a "Try Curling" event on Saturday, March 11, 2023. This event is for kids 6-10 years old who have never curled before. Full details and registration are available on the "Bonspiels & Special Events" Web page on this site.

Registration details for the 2023-2024 season will be posted on the Web site first. Stay tuned!


THIS SEASON: October 2022 to March 2023

The East York Little Rocks (U12) Program is for children ages 7 to 11 years old who want to learn and play the sport of curling! We welcome newcomers to the sport as well as experienced curlers.

The Goals of the Little Rocks (U12) Program:

  • FUN!!! We want everyone to enjoy the game.
  • SAFETY We want everyone to be as safe as possible.
  • LEARNING LIFE LESSONS We want to build character in our kids.
  • SKILL DEVELOPMENT We learn the sport of curling by practicing basic skills each week and by playing games, where we also learn rules and etiquette.

Our season runs from October to March/April. We typically hold our first practice after Thanksgiving weekend and end our season in late March or early April. Practices are held on Sundays from 1:15 to 2:45 p.m. We take the occasional Sunday off and there is a break during the December holidays. A practice schedule will be provided in the first few weeks of the program.

Curlers must provide their own helmet. A bicycle, hockey, skating or snowboard/skiing helmet is appropriate. Curlers must also bring a pair of clean running shoes. The club provides brushes and sliders.

Registration for Little Rocks typically begins in the Summer that precedes the curling season. Traditionally, there is priority registration for current members, with remaining spaces filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Fees for the 2022-23 season were $188 per child. Note: The program was capped at 36 kids this season.

"Curling 101" YouTube video playlist for Little Rocks/U12 Parents

A couple of parents have asked me about things their kids can do off the ice to help with their curling.

Some others have asked me for basic resources to learn the sport. I've created a YouTube playlist of basic curling videos for "curling parents." The link is below.


If you're looking for super-technical stuff, this isn't your playlist. However, I think it's a good sample of the kinds of things we teach the kids on the ice.
