Saturday Social Mixed (6:30pm & 9:00pm)

This entry-level section of the club is perfect for new and experienced curlers. The emphasis on Saturday nights is learning the game and having fun. Individual and team skills are developed both on and off the ice through clinics and game play. Our weekly games are six ends, and members are assigned to teams with the goals of creating teams of equal calibre and maximizing the number of different people that play together on a team over each of three series. The final series culminates with a playoff run and championship evening. Several social events and theme nights are organized throughout the year to keep the focus on fun and friendship.

Start Date: September 24th, 2022

Day Men’s Section (11:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m.)

The Day Men’s Section presents a curling venue that includes all skill levels: from novice to some of the Club’s most experienced curlers.  The Afternoon Draw (1:00 p.m.) is Tag format; the Drawmaster(s) place each attending curler on a team in the appropriate position based on skill level and experience.  The Morning Draw (11:00 a.m.) is Fixed Team format; the Drawmaster develops teams from the list of curlers who have signed up for that session of round-robin play of the Morning Draw.  New teams are drawn up from those curlers who sign up for the next session.

Each week, a 2-dollar raffle is held on both Draws; the proceeds are used to fund the weekly prizes and the prizes for our Christmas and Year End “Days of Curling”.

The Day Men’s Section is committed to providing a fun, friendly and non-judgemental environment that fosters an atmosphere of fellowship and respect for others.  DMS curlers are expected to conduct themselves in the spirit of positive sportsmanship and fair play and to refrain from any behaviour (physical actions; verbal comments; body language) that may be deemed to be detrimental to the enjoyment of any other curler on or off the ice.

Little Rocks (Ages 7-11, Birth years 2011-2016) (Sundays 9:30 AM)

Start Date: October 16th, 2022

Whether their parents curl, or they have seen curling on TV, joining the Little Rocks section gives children the chance to play the sport of curling. Using lighter, smaller curling rocks, kids learn the game while having fun in a supportive environment. Each week, time is spent on the ice practicing skills, learning the ins and outs of the game and of course a few ends are played. Adult High Park Club curlers volunteer their time to help coach the section because they love the game and want to help foster the next generation of curlers. Curlers must provide their own helmet. A bicycle, hockey, skating or skiing helmet is appropriate. Curlers must also bring a pair of clean running shoes. The club provides brushes and sliders.
