Calling all young and energetic curlers.

The Capital One Rocks & Rings program is expanding to the Kootenays in an effort to introduce the sport of curling in an off-ice environment to Nelson and area youth. 

The Nelson Curling Club enjoys the unique position of being the first club outside the Lower Mainland in British Columbia to acquire the rights to the program. 

This new program exposes curling to children and families that would otherwise not receive the opportunity, with the ultimate goal being increased participation in the sport.

Using unique floor curling equipment, students experience a high-energy, fun-filled session while learning about the sport in their school’s gymnasium. 

With each elementary school visit, the Capital One Rocks & Rings program reaches six to seven classes or approximately 150 to 200 students.  

Upon completion, each student receives a graduation certificate and program souvenir.  For further information on this program email or visit
