Monday Novice League
2016-17 Season Information and Registration
The Monday Novice League (alternating 6:45 pm and 9:00 pm draw times) is suitable for someone who has been through a curling clinic or program or has limited curling experience. You must be ready to make a commitment to curl all season. Participants may sign up as individuals to be placed on teams, as a complete team of four, or as a partial team looking for one or two others.
The first five weeks of the program are devoted to learning all the basic curling skills, then league play begins in week six with the first game supervised by a coach. There is an additional week of instruction in January.
Participants may curl in the novice league for only two seasons then are asked to move on to other Vancouver Curling Club leagues to make room for other new curlers in the league. This is a fun league as everyone in it is relatively new to curling and the bar is open for socializing when your game is done.
The 2016-17 season will start on Sept. 26 and run through to Mar. 27 with 23 weeks in total. There will be no curling on Oct. 10 (Thanksgiving), Dec. 19, Dec. 26 and Feb. 13 (Family Day).
Registration for the Monday Novice League is now open, but priority will be given to novice curlers from last season if they register prior to July 31. The fee for the league is not final, but will not be any higher than last season's fee of $350 plus GST.
