The goal of the Getting Started for Adults program is to attract new curlers and to retain them.  People are more likely to stick with a sport if it is fun, reasonably priced, and they get good at it.  Unlike the traditional one-day clinic, the program helps entry level and novice curlers get progressively better through continued weekly instruction and skill development.
