The cost for 1 day a week is $197 for Mondays, $212 for Thursdays or 2 days a week is $247. Fees include curling affiliation dues, club capital fee and a voucher for equipment at the Pro Shop.

Equipment: Juniors are not permitted to wear jeans on the ice. Brooms are provided. Curling shoes are required (see next item)  

Vouchers: As part of the registration fee, you will receive a Voucher for the Nanaimo Curling Centre; it is our intention that the voucher be used toward the purchase of curling shoes or may also be used for other items in the Pro Shop. Vouchers have an expiry date and must be redeemed by January 31st of the season received.  

Club Jackets: Will be available for order/purchase in November. The cost of the jacket is split between the curler and the Jr. Program. The cost per curler is approximately $50.00. The jackets have the curlers name on them.

Bonspiels: The first Saturday in November is the NCC Junior Bonspiel with both Experienced and Novice events. Throughout the season there are a number of Bonspiels held at various clubs on the Island, and we try and get as many teams together as possible for these events. Bonspiel entry fees are usually $30.00 per curler which always includes lunch. Parents will need to provide transportation to the events.

Badge Testing: We do Badge/Skill testing during the Season. Although this is not required, we encourage all Juniors to take part.
