Dick Mann, Lorelei Guidos, Kate & Darryl Horne . . . all volunteers! It may sound like lots BUT we require a high instructor to junior ratio for safety and delivery of a great program! We would love to have YOUR help. If you feel you need some ‘basic training’ before you help out, Kate & Darryl Horne are both certified ‘coach trainers’ with Curl BC; they’d be happy to spend some time with you.

Shoe fitting day: Thursday, Oct 12 4:00 to 6:00pm. First come – first served (some sizes are limited). Call Kate or Dick if you have any questions.
SACC shoes, brooms and delivery devices are available on first come basis but must remain at the club. Curlers will be invited to come to SACC (pre-season) to try on shoes and shoes will be tagged with curler’s name.
We encourage players to purchase their own. Proper fitting shoes with a well cared for slider make a world of difference to skill development.
NO JEANS, please! Curlers need stretchy pants to get into a proper slide position. SWEAT PANTS ARE GREAT! Dress warmly – gloves that don’t allow hands to slip down the broom (knitted gloves are too slippery), toques, layers are good.
We are pleased to announce that the Thompson Okanagan Inter City Curling League will commence operations again this Fall! This is offered as an option if your child is ready for more game play or competitive play. Thompson Okanagan Inter City Curling League schedule will be posted as soon as it’s avalable!
