Northern Alberta Curling Association



*            I will not force my child to participate in curling!


*            I will remember that my child curls for his/her enjoyment, not mine!


*            I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflict without resorting to hostility or violence!


*            I will teach my child that doing one's best is as important as winning so that my child will never feel defeated by the score of the game!


*            I will make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly, for trying hard and/or for at least making a good shot sometime in the game!


*            I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a game!


*            I will remember that children learn best by example; I will applaud good plays and performances by both teams!


*            I will never question the officials’ judgment or honesty in public!


*            I will support all efforts to remove verbal abuse from curling games!


*            I will respect and show appreciation for all the volunteers that contribute to each team so that my child has an opportunity to curl!
