Welcome back curling fans! It has been a long summer but ice season 2020/21 has finally arrived. Lots of games have been scheduled and you are seeing that correctly... we have 2 lanes installed! (Shout out to Brady C. for his generous donation!) Thanks to the growing interest in the sport, the goal is to acquire a second set of equipment by mid-season.
RETURN TO THE RINK PROTOCOLS
The Return to the Rink Covid-19 Committee and the YAIA Board of Directors have been working due diligently to set forth COVID safety protocols so we can all return to the rink safely. Please take a moment to refer to their policies.
Because curling movements do not require the same exertion as hockey or figure skating, face masks will be required on the ice to curl.
LEARN TO CURLS
Good news if you missed last season's Learn to Curl classes, at least one class is scheduled each month this season. All classes will require preregistration. First classes begin Friday, October 23rd from 6:30-8:00, and 8:30-10:00. Click here to pre-register!
Even with one operational lane, two Friendly Mini-Leagues are scheduled this fall. The first will begin Sunday, November 1st for 3 consecutive weeks. This league will be limited to four teams rotating between two different time slots. Ex. Two teams will play from 12:45-2:15, followed by the next two teams from 2:30-4:00. Each week all teams will rotate times to be able to play each other once.
Registration for this league will open up on Wednesday, October 21st.
The second Friendly Mini-League dates will be announced in the weeks to come.
Many random Pop-Up/Hat Games have been scheduled throughout the season. The first one is scheduled Friday, October 30th from 7:30-9:00. Costumes are encouraged! If you have a team, great! If you do not have a team, we will set you up! Spots are limited to 8 individuals. Be sure to pre-register here.
More announcements will follow in the coming weeks. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for all the latest updates. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you all on the ice!
