From the President
The Juan de Fuca Curling Centre Association is a volunteer-run curling centre that plays at the 8-sheet facility at the West Shore Parks and Recreation Centre in Colwood. Although we are on the west shore, we welcome members from all areas of greater Victoria.
2017-18 will be the Juan de Fuca Curling Centre's 42nd season. One of our goals is to grow the game, by offering a number of ways for people to try curling and learn for themselves that it is a fun and challenging sport for all skill levels. It is also a sport that emphasizes socializing as much as competition and one you can play well after you've had to give up on other activities.
It is not necessary for you to have curled before and you don't have to be on a team in order to join our Curling Centre. If you are new to the sport, we offer our Carol Skinner Learn to Curl Program. If you've curled previously, but you want to fine-tune your knowledge of the game before joining a competitive league, consider joining our new Brush Up Your Curling league. The Brush Up Your Curling League provides an opportunity to play on a team in a non-competitive and friendly environment, while receiving regular input from our coaches.
If you are not sure about committing to a full season of curling, come join us for our Open House. The Open House is scheduled for September 16, from noon until 4 PM, and will provide an opportunity to meet some curlers and try out the basic skills required to play the game. The Curling Centre will provide coaching to help you with the basics - enough to convince you that it's a fun and inexpensive way to be active. The Open House is for all ages, so bring your family.

WEBSITE NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION
For returning curlers and those who want to sign up early, our website is now open for online registration and payment.
If you were registered with Juan de Fuca Curling Centre in the past, please remember to use your account from the previous year to registrar. Please DO NOT create a new account. If you can't remember your username and/or password please hit the link "send my user name and password to my email address". You will be asked to supply the email address you used to log on previously and you will then be able to retrieve your user name and password. Use that information to log on and register for this year.
We hope most of you will be able to take advantage of online registration, to avoid the last minute rush on the first few nghts of curling. As well, we will provide an opportunity to register in-person, on Tuesday September 5, from 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM, at the curling centre.
Your JDF Curling Centre Executive and league presidents look forward to seeing you in September!
Richard Rogers, President
