Curlers slide into season

The Nanaimo Curling Centre held its open houses on the weekend, and now it’s ready to fill up as many ice sheets as it can for league play.

The Nanaimo Curling Centre held its open houses on the weekend, and now it’s ready to fill up as many ice sheets as it can for league play.

The adult leagues get underway today (Sept. 29), with the senior men’s league the first to take to the new ice.

The curling centre’s junior program will start Monday (Oct. 3) and new junior players can still sign up. Youths are welcome to try a free session of curling to see if they like it before parents commit to a full season’s registration.

For adult novice curlers, the club offers a 10-week learn-to-curl program from October to December that includes both on- and off-ice instruction. Graduates can then advance to a training league from January to March to further their skills.
