Capital One Rocks & Rings at the Timbits Elementary School Championships
The 25th Annual Timbits Elementary School Curling Championships were held in Parry Sound on April 12 to April 15 and Capital One Rocks & Rings was there!
Eighty teams from fifty different schools from as far away as Ottawa, Cochrane, Seaforth and Gananoque all vied for the title of Ontario Champions over the four day event. On Saturday April 14, Rocks & Rings set up an information area to help spread the word about the program to everyone and the interest was overwhelming.
Parents, teachers and children were all interested in how they could get Capital One Rocks & Rings into their schools and help increase the exposure of the game they all love. Many parents and teachers came by the booth and mentioned how they have been looking for something like this to spark more interest in the sport within the schools. Kids of all ages loved the Kurling set too as games played on in the upper hall at the Bobby Orr Community center while the competition progressed on the ice below.
After four days of competition, the team from the McLeod Public School of Sudbury, which was the first school this year in Sudbury to receive Rocks & Rings, finally won out as provincial champions but each and every team there enjoyed the competition and really experienced the love of the game. Capital One Rocks & Rings was proud to be part of it all.
