Clinic Hosting Information

Level 1 or Level 2 Ice Technician Workshop – Opportunity to host

CURLSASK is always interested in working with sites to host Ice Technician Workshops.

Some benefits for your curling club to host a workshop are:

  • A $300 credit with Jet Ice
  • Training people with ice installation & maintenance
  • Interaction with other ice makers in your area
  • Increase quality of ice in your club and surrounding clubs
  • Gives exposure for your club

The responsibility of the curling club to host a workshop is as follows:

1) Donate ice (minimum 2 sheets) and classroom facilities within the curling rink and ensure ice is booked. Grant access to the ice plant facilities and use of ice maker’s equipment for demonstration purposes.

2) Ensure participants have access to lunch counter/restaurant for meals.

3) Ensure accommodations are available for instructors and out-of-town participants.

4) Assist in recruiting participants by informing all the clubs in your area as well as other neighboring areas. Posters will be supplied to you by the CURLSASK Office. We would require a minimum of 10 participants for the course to run.

5) Forward any course participant names to the CURLSASK office accompanied by the participant’s cheque.

6) Provide a contact person in your community. This person is responsible for registering course participants on the first morning of the course and will be the person the course materials; equipment, etc. will be shipped to.
