Our Member Social Committee has organized a "Meet and Greet" off-ice social evening specifically for all new curlers and those curlers who are returning to the club after a short absence. Come out and connect with other new members for a fun-filled evening with games and prizes!!! The York Curling Club executive and league convenors will be in attendance to participate in the festivities and be available to answer questions or address any concerns that you, as a new member, may have.

Congratulations to Erika Buhlman's team that won the main event.
YCC is inviting 6 candidates to attend a Club Coach Course set up by the OCA this Fall. It is a two day event that is usually offered at a Club in the GTA Region (this info is not available yet but will be soon).
The successful candidates will be reimbursed their fee of $175.00 for attending the course when they have completed their volunteer hours with our Learn to Curl Program. This is a great way for a curler to improve their skills and give back to the Club at the same time.
Several of our members have attended these courses and are now certified as Club Coaches and have had a significant impact assisting new curlers and helping with the Learn to Curl Program.
Thanks .... Lindsay

Additionally, we will be holding a FREE Beginner Clinic for any New Curler who has signed up as a club member and who has enrolled in a YCC League.
