March 20/21, 2021

There is no doubt this past year has presented challenges that no one could ever have anticipated.  Our lives have been changed significantly and possibly permanently.  This virtual symposium is intended to bring coaches together to share resources so that when you can get back on the ice with your teams you will be ready to adapt and thrive in the changed environment. You will be ready to support your team as you focus with them on the future. Some of the best curling minds in Canada are ready to share their expertise with you whether you are coaching and teaching recreational curlers or working with competitive curlers.

Thanks to additional funds received from the Ontario Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism & Culture Industries this event is free to all who wish to attend however registration is required.  Stay tuned for the release of the schedule and an announcement on when registration will open.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, there will be draws for merchandise and gift certificates during the two day event.  You must be in attendance to win.

Professional Development points will be available to certified coaches who participate in the symposium.  Participation in the conference will be recorded in the Locker for all participants who register with their NCCP number.


Participants will need a Curler Profile in order to register.
