In an extended effort to help stimulate Club Membership, CurlON expands the Clinics Program this season to include a FREE TRY CURLING NOW Showcase. Up to 15 Member Clubs are selected to receive a FREE clinic package, designed to attract new curlers and convert them to members. The Club puts out the red carpet, while CurlON provides a trained Clinics Program Instructor to lead your selected club volunteers in a 1-day session, presented in two parts:
The first session is a 4-hour Try Curling Now drop-in, for first-time curlers in your community to experience the game.
The second session is a 2-hour Adult Learn to Curl (AL2C) program training clinic with your selected club volunteers, receiving the basic know-how to continue instructing new registrants, during a 6-week continuation program.
CurlON works cooperatively with the club to help ensure the goals and objectives of the injection program:
