Ready to Rock Program


Rural events sponsored by:
Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops Ltd.

Get Ready to Rock!

The Ready to Rock program is a new Curling Alberta initiative which launched in 2021 to increase the diversity and inclusion in curling by encouraging participation from BIPOC youth as well as youth from financially marginalized families. We believe removing barriers to entry and encouraging youth and families from a more diverse socioeconomic and ethnic make-up will ensure that curling continues to be an inclusive sport that fosters a culture where everyone is welcome.

The Ready to Rock program is open to any youth aged 9 to 15 and will accommodate up to 4800 participants in over 50 curling clubs across Alberta. Ready to Rock starts with FREE Try-It Event where participants will have the opportunity to be coached by some of Canada’s top curlers. The Try-It Event will be followed by an 8-week Learn to Curl program where participants will receive 1 hour of curling instruction per week.
