Rockslide Curling Camp hits the Okanagan this weekend
The Curl BC Rockslide Summer Curling Camp will be hitting the Okanagan in Vernon this weekend from August 18-21. 50 junior athletes between the ages of 11-19 will be visiting the city to work with some of BC’s top coaches (led by Curl BC Provincial Coach & Olympic Bronze Medalist, Melissa Soligo) to enhance their skills on and off the ice.
This is the first year for the summer camp, but with a keen interest from beginner to high performance junior curlers across the province its future looks promising.
In addition to the camp, a Championship Ice Making course is hosting 26 ice technicians from BC & Alberta from August 15-17, who will take back their newly acquired tricks of the trade to their local curling centres. Internationally renowned ice technician Dave Merklinger will be leading the course.
A Competition Coach course is also taking place where 8 coaches will become certified to coach competitive curling teams; and for those more interested in soaking up the sun while supporting a good cause, the Sandra Schmirler Foundation Charity Golf Tournament – Okanagan will be held in Kelowna from the 19th – 21st .
