Give wheelchair curling a try at Curl BC clinics
Two-time Paralympic gold medalist Sonja Gaudet will help lead two wheelchair curling clinics in BC in November.
The free CAN Curl More clinics are designed for people who have never taken part in wheelchair curling or who are just starting out in the sport. They are an opportunity for people to learn more and have a go on the ice.
Sonja, who won gold medals at the Torino 2006 and Vancouver 2010 Paralympics and became a certified coach in 2011, will be accompanied by Curl BC coach and master learning facilitator Karen Watson. The two women will give in-class and on-ice instruction to everyone who signs up.
The Curl BC clinics are taking place on Wednesday, November 21, in Nanaimo and Thursday, November 22, in Richmond.
- Snack, lunch and warm drinks are provided.
- There is no cost.
- Participants must bring their own wheelchair.
- Participants must be independently capable of holding a push stick and pushing a 40 lb curling stone.
