Curling

The Shot Rocks

The Shot Rocks Curling team has been operating in Kingston for 18 years and has athletes who compete in all levels of play. In order to join the curling team an athlete must be
comfortable being on the ice.
 
If you are interested in Curling, you will be practicing with your team to improve your skill and fitness levels every week.  You will also be able to participate in two Family Day events and an invitational bonspiel every year. 
  
If selected, athletes can compete in the Tankard Qualifier annually. This is a provincial level competition. In 2016, The Shot Rocks “B” Team won the Tankard for their level. On a 3 year rotation, there are qualifiers for Provincial and National Games that athletes strive for.  

Registration for Curling takes place during Winter Sports Registration in September. If you wish to begin once the season has begun please contact the coach to see if there is available space on the team.

The Shot Rocks would be very pleased to welcome new athletes to their team!

CUPE 109

In September,The Shot Rocks curling team helped CUPE 109 with their Yard sale.  And it was a good day.  We got the chance to tell people about our program and how much CUPE 109 has helped our program.

CUPE 109 have been supporters of The Shot Rocks for many years.  We have curled against their members and this is an event we all look forward to.  They have always encouraged our curlers and supported them without hesitation.  The Shot Rocks count their blessings for having such staunch supporters and we thank them for their continued support and friendship. 

Oct/11 we got a chance to go to their union meeting to receive a donation cheque and of course show off our winnings - like the gold medal at The National Winter Games in Newfoundland and the OCA/SOO Tankard banner in Brantford.  This shows with the support like that of CUPE 109 and the athletes determination things are possible.

Thank you again CUPE 109 for your tremendous support.

Al Davis

Al has been a friend and supporter of The Shot Rocks for many years.

Each year he holds a curling spiel during the season and donates the money raised to the Shot Rocks curling program.

To have an individual like Al in your corner fantastic. All season he asks how all the athletes are doing, he watches them compete and encourages them after their performance.

He takes the time to talk to the athletes and is always encouraging them on their ability.

We are looking forward to our curlers challenging his team to games this season

Al thank you for all your continued support!
