Youth Curling General FAQ

What are the age restrictions for the youth curling program?

The TBYC program is designed for children between the ages of X and Y.   With that in mind, if you are an on-ice coach/instructor involved with the program, you are able to bring out your child that might be younger.

What is the frequency of the sessions?

Take a moment to review the season schedule.

What does my child need to wear?

The curling rink is meant to be cool, not cold.  Therefore, we suggest your child wears layers.  A good fleece as a top layer works perfectly.  It is imperative that your child brings a clean pair of sneakers for the ice surface.  The curling ice will get damaged if outdoor shoes are worn on its surface.

Do participants have to wear a helmet on the ice?

All participants under the age of 12 are required to wear a helmet.  Afterwards, although helmets are still encouraged, they are no longer required.

Should my child bring a snack or drink?

Although a small snack and drink is typically provided upon completion of a development session, it is suggested for children to bring a water bottle with them.

How do I get involved as a parent?

We encourage all parents to stay and watch their children develop their curling skills throughout the season.  If you feel that you would like to help out on the ice, as a parent volunteer, please contact us at or approach one of the volunteers during an event.  We appreciate any help that you are willing to give us!

Is there fundraising involved?

The FWCC and PACC each raise money to help support Youth Curling.  One of the primary methods is through Bingo fundraising provided by Superior Shores.  If you are interested in helping the clubs run bingos, please contact your home club and let them know.   If you are unsure who to contact, please reach out to us at
