Let us take today’s session to talk more about administration of the Little Rock program and a topic which will certainly tip the scales of boring to extreme…. Finances.
A while back, it came to my attention a curling club has some unusual ice utilization practices. One day four sheets of ice were in use by school teams, one school per sheet of ice. This particular day, there could have been 50 curlers on the four ices.
I have been asked numerous times, “What makes a successful Little Rock Program?” There are many factors to creating a successful program such as instruction, social events, program variety, volunteers, communication, fun and ‘organization’.
Way back when, sports started to modify big boy activities so that the little people could play. It was not practical for little bodies to play sports with equipment and playing areas designed for adult sized participants. By modifying equipment to a smaller size, kids could be entrenched with sport at an earlier age to have a longer life long-experience with the healthy pursuits of sport.
You have got this great idea that you want to create a Little Rock program at your curling club. Not just a one-time fun spiel involving the kids and their families, but a full fledged 20 week program to encourage in curling the 6 years of age and up sector of our community.
