With feedback from parents and the MODG Recreation Department, the Club is going to attempt again to get the Junior League curling started immediately after New Year’s. Junior curlers can be ages 10 – 20 thus the league is not restricted to only the younger players.
I met with Angie Traverse, MODG Director of Recreation, yesterday and am going back to the school on Friday. The plan at this time is to send notices home with students and to also have a Juniors’ registration night at the Chedabucto Curling Club on Monday, January 6, from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM..
Shawna Cody has agreed to be one of the coaches but she will need assistance. It is vital that we have coaches to pitch in to assist; the Club’s Executive members already are doing a great deal thus it would be overdoing their kindness to expect more of their time.
The Juniors day is planned at this time to be on Thursdays after school with the first day being January 9, 2014. The thought for that specific day was because the adults are curling day league Thursdays thus the ice will have been scrapped and pebbled / nipped in advance for the Juniors.
There will be financial assistance towards registration with more details to come later.
All of these good intentions are pending on the number of Juniors who sign up to play and on the availability of coaches to assist.
Please spread the before-mentioned information. More details will be coming before January 6.
If you have any questions or comments please contact me ASAP. (533.2528 or email reply)
