Sports Day in Canada

Date: 
Saturday, September 17, 2011 - 13:00 - 17:00

The Vancouver Curling Club will be featured as part of Sports Day in Canada – a national celebration of sport, from grassroots to high-performance levels, in communities across the country.

In cooperation with the Canadian Curling Association and Curl BC, the VCC invites you to come try curling for free on Sept. 17 from 1pm until 5pm.

Activities during the day include:

  • On-ice coaching from two-time Paralympic curling gold medallist (2006 and 2010), Sonjia Gaudet, and other certified coaches
  • Draw to the Button Contests (every hour)
  • Capital One Rocks & Rings (a curling program held on the floor – not on the ice – to introduce kids to curling)
  • Colouring station and balloons for kids
  • Door prizes
  • Snacks, sweets and juice

All of the activities above are available for free. Donations for the Vancouver Food Bank are welcome.

As our Club is part of a national broadcast, we encourage members to also come on out to deliver a few rocks as we showcase our sport.
