Big Thank you to the Optimist Club of St. Albert for their generous support of our Youth Curling Programs!
Glen Kreller and President, Patti Welling from the Optimist Club of St. Albert and Optimists International visited on Wednesday evening to present Nicole with a cheque supporting youth curling at our club. This year, they have purchased a second set of Lite Rocks and 2 new junior houses for the Little Rocks Program, a second set of Rock Hawk speed traps for our Juniors and journals for our STAJED program.
The Optimist Club of St. Albert has a long history of supporting our youth and we are grateful for their contributions to the development of junior curlers at our club.
Congratulations to our wheelchair curlers who finished with a Silver Medal at the Alberta Wheelchair Curling Championships in Calgary Feb. 9-11, 2018
Edmonton Rocks wheelchair curlers Shawna Walsh, Warren Fleury, Mike McMullen, and Don Kuchelyma all curl in our Friday Stick Curling League. They are coached this year by Rick Jenkyns and despite everyone curling their personal bests, and a late game rally, stealing 2 in 7 and another 2 in 8, they fell to defending Alberta Champions, Team Jack Smart of the Calgary Curling Club. The Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championships will be held in Leduc, March 26-31, 2018.
The Team says: "Thank you to Nicole and the St. Albert Curling Club and icemaker, Audra for practice ice." And, they have extended an invitation to "Anyone in a wheel chair and wanting to try wheelchair curling, please visit the Edmonton Rocks website to find details on where and when to come. The more the better! You are only limited by your expectations!!! Anything is possible!!!"

School Program Volunteers
If you have time to share during the day and have a basic knowledge of the game of curling, then we would love to have you join our small band of On-Ice Volunteers to help with our School Programs. We have booked a record number of school groups this year and don't want to disappoint the students if we don't have the volunteers to support the program. Nicole or Holly provide the instruction, and our volunteers are there to help the students and provide on-ice supervision to ensure their safety and enjoyment during their time at St. Albert Curling Club. Please call the office to sign up as a volunteer, or view the times/dates where we need volunteers on the calendar posted at:
