A full schedule of clinics these past couple of weeks has seen many youth curlers get on the ice to work on and improve their curling skills.

Over 130 High School players and a dozen coaches in both the competitive and recreational leagues were provided with a training program to enhance their skills.

Prince Albert CURLSASK instructors also provided their annual clinic for school aged curlers on October 26th and 27th. Fourteen young curlers took advantage of the time on the ice with their dedicated instructors to improve their curling skills and knowledge.
CURL Regina , in conjunction with CURLSASK, organized a major clinic for 40 teams in the U17 and U14 age groups in the CURL Regina Youth League on November 3rd, 2013.

Twenty two sheets of ice were in full swing at the Tartan and Callie Clubs as instructors put the teams through their paces. Younger curlers worked on skills and techniques while the more senior teams utilized the time to work with their coaches in actual game conditions.
