Benefits of Membership
In addition to curling, our club members have many interests and hobbies.
Why join the Curling Club? Well, it provides socializing, exercise and fun from mid October to mid March. Curl BC provides our registered curlers with injury insurance while they are in the club, curling or otherwise. The social experience is a huge part of membership. If you are new to town, there isn’t a better way to get to know more people in Armstrong! Our club has a cozy and updated lounge where you can relax and rehash that shot you missed or the great take out you made. If you like to volunteer, you can have many opportunities to do so, from helping in the kitchen, to learning to tend bar, decorating, organizing an event, building maintenance…the list goes on! Be involved…or not….as much as you wish. Finally, members enjoy a discount on rentals of the facilities for that special party or event for your family.
Learn To Curl
Never curled or haven’t curled in many years? No problem! Our trained coaches will take you under their wings and get you started. If you are reading this in the summer and would like to ease yourself into the sport, we offer a more focused Adult Try Curling Program on Mondays from 5 to 6:30 pm from mid October to mid December. Go to Leagues for details!
For those who chose not to deliver their rocks “out of the hack”, it is perfectly acceptable to use a delivery stick, either as a separate tool or as an attachment on the back of the broom, so you can deliver rocks standing up. Much easier on the knees! While the delivery stick, or broom, is perfectly acceptable in normal 4 person curling, there is also a game specifically for the Stick Curler
Stick Curling is played with teams of 2 persons instead of 4 and lasts just under an hour. In the game of Stick Curling, you are on one end of the sheet with your team mate on the other. In alternating ends you take turns being the skip and calling the shots or throwing 6 rocks. It’s fun and a great way to learn the strategy of the game. Take advantage of our casual approach where members coach and mentor players who are new to the game.
Players from the Armstrong Curling Club have won the BC Provincial Stick curling title six times and have won the Canadian Stick curling title three times in the last ten years. Two of our coaches are provincial stick champions and you can benefit from this experience. We offer stick leagues on Mondays and Wednesday during the regular season. Give it a try!
