|EGG FARMERS ROCKS & RINGS
HOSTED BY OLDS JUNIOR CURLERS
With the Humpty's Champions Cup coming to Olds April 29 to May 3, 2020, this is a great year to celebrate curling in our community. To help get the community excited about this event, the Olds Junior Curling Program is teaming up with the Town of Olds to offer Rocks and Rings in October 2019. This is a fun, interactive introduction to curling geared for students from Kindergarten to Grade 8. This will introduce approximately 1,350 students to curling in our community!
The Egg Farmers Rocks & Rings program is presented by Curling Canada program. Curlers visit participating schools for a full school day. They take over the gym as classes take turns visiting for 40 minute sessions of fun and instruction. Unique indoor floor curling equipment is used to provide a true curling experience without requiring ice!
Various drills, relays and team-building activities are used to introduce students to the sport of curling. It is a highly interactive program with the emphasis on fun!
Our goal is to promote curling, sports and active lifestyles. Olds Curling Club offers youth curling and a Friday family fun night so we hope Rocks and Rings will spark interest in these offerings.
Based on past Pinty's events, we are optimistic schools will have additional opportunities to be involved when the Humpty's Cup, part of Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling comes to town!
