The Blizzard program, level 1, was designed to use curling to promote sport and physical activity among children in elementary schools (6-12 years old). This program is built on a recreational, not competitive, level and its main goal is to show kids what curling is all about while teaching them to appreciate the sport.
Throughout this 8-week program, one lesson of 90 minutes per week, kids will gradually learn the basics of curling through adapted exercises and fun activities. All equipment is included, and there are on-ice instructors at all times to make it fun and safe!
After offering the program in a few clubs in winter 2016, Blizzard proved to be a great way to step into the sport and an excellent tool to foster junior players’ development.
