What is Kurlingkids?
KurlingKids is New Age Kurling for kids and is a Sporting Dreams School Sports Program.
We introduce children aged 4-12years old to the fun new sport of New Age Kurling and teach them how to play and understand the basic rules, types of shots and strategies to use to compete against an opponent. We also incorporate basic mathematics into our lessons.
What is New Age Kurling?
Kurling is a form of the original curling game, but adapted so it can be played indoors and on any smooth, flat surface, such as a sports hall, rather than on ice. It is a fully inclusive game allowing people of all abilities to play and have fun. The objective of the game is to get as many stones closer to the centre of the target (a vinyl mat) than your opponent’s stones.
In 2000, John Bennett was asked by his son to think up a sport that disabled people could all enjoy. It was while watching the Curling World Championships on television that John came up with the idea of New Age Kurling, an indoor version of the existing game.
At KurlingKIDS we find it a useful learning tool to get the children to watch the cartoon version (2minutes) of how to play real Curling on ice, and then to watch a bit of the adults playing real Curling. This helps children learn faster. Thank you to the Canadian curling association.

Our approach to teaching children:
If you haven’t already, please take a look at our about us page, our history, and our foundations, where you can read a little about our coaching methods, our approach and our use of discipline. These are vitally important to create and maintain a fun, safe and efficient learning environment for the children.
Our instructors approach to teaching New Age Kurling is firm but fair and in a fun way. We always say to the children that ‘we want you to have an amazing time but if you have poor listening skills then you will have a poor lesson, but if you have amazing listening skills then you will have an amazing lesson’.
Like all of our school sports programs, we try our very best to get the balance right between making lessons fun whilst maintaining good child behaviour management.
