On Sunday, October 14, the Invermere Curling Club was pleased to host 17 local youth and exchange students. Al Kersey, Optimist Curl BC facilitator from Surrey, B.C., with the help of local junior coaches, took players through the basics of curling in a fun-filled five-hour clinic.
Junior curling will start Wednesday, November 7 at 3:30 p.m. for novice curlers. A new bantam/high school league will be starting this year on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. The cost is only $40 for a 15-week session, from November to March. New curlers are encouraged to join.
