You may already coach at the community level or you’re thinking about coaching. Often, you’re a parent whose child is involved in sport, or a volunteer who works with participants of all ages that are new to a sport.

Individuals interested in becoming involved in their club’s junior program can greatly benefit from this course (supervisors, parents, volunteers, etc.).

Coaches who take this one day workshop (7 hours) will become a Trained Youth Club Coach. This coach will be able to coach beginning curlers and youth curlers whom have been involved in curling for several years. A Youth Club Coach will be an expert in preparing a safe environment, ethical decision – making, and leading curlers in activities which are age suitable and technically correct for youth curlers. A Youth Club Coach will exemplify correct coaching behaviour.

  • setting the scene
  • ethical coaching
