Want to curl, have fun, and work with kids?
Sports enthusiasts from the Lower Mainland are being recruited to work with elementary-school-age children to encourage them to be more active.
SOAR (Sharing Our Activities and Resources) is an initiative developed by Tennis BC, British Columbia Golf and Curl BC.
The not-for-profit groups are recruiting individuals to be trained in the delivery of three sports programs.
Training is currently scheduled for Sunday, January 13, at Ranch Park Elementary School in Coquitlam, followed by three days of a mentorship opportunity, to put into practice what is learned at the training. For more information or to register for the program (http://www.britishcolumbiagolf.org/events-workshops/soar-training-coquitlam/) or call Penny Bartel, Curl BC Participation Manager, at 604-333-3620 or email ac.cblrucnull@letrabp.
Completion of the training program as well as a criminal record check is a prerequisite to working with SOAR.
The instructors will run:
- The Capital One Rocks & Rings program, which is a gym-based curling game for 6 to 12-year-olds.
- The Playground to Fairway (P2F) School Golf program, which introduces basic golf skills to school-age children with a focus on fun.
- The Learn & Play program, a fun tennis program aimed at younger children which uses mini racquets and foam balls.
