The Capital One Rocks & Rings program has been growing strong across Canada over the past few years, and it certainly made an impression in Brier-hosting Edmonton this season. We’ve been very fortunate that several elite-level curlers have taken time out of their busy work and competition schedules to volunteer at the local schools and enhance the experience for the students.
Over the past few years, the Capital One Rocks & Rings program has been expanding. We’ve been encouraging local clubs to take advantage of our Adopt a School program. The Meaford Curling Club worked with their local schools to get students from the gym to the curling ice, and here is their story.
The Capital One Rocks & Rings program recently spent three days at Lester B. Pearson School in Aurora, Ontario. For one student – the only curler in the school – this was a chance to spread the word about the game he loved and hopefully recruit some friends to form a school curling team. Here’s his account of the day.
Recently Capital One Rocks & Rings partnered with Bramalea Secondary School’s Leadership class to offer something a little different for a local elementary school. The High School kids were trained in curling and the different games and activities to teach to Grade 6 classes at the neighbouring elementary school.
It’s 8:30 a.m., the sun is just peeking out over the tree tops, the roads are bustling with working commuters, and school bus lights are flashing red. It’s 8:30 a.m. and I, a 19-year-old university student find myself at an unfamiliar elementary school in a rural town in beautiful New Brunswick. This has been a typical day for me since teaming up with the Capital One Rocks & Rings Program.
