The Scottish Curling Skill Awards Programme is designed to improve young curlers’ skills through a series of awards which become gradually more challenging. The programme is open to all Scottish Curling affiliated members and is encouraged as part of after school and junior club sessions.
Progress through the awards is determined by individual ability and Scottish Curling qualified coaches encourage individuals to advance to their next award level by reaching the standard requirements.
Participation in the Skill Awards allows monitoring and measurement of skill proficiency that is recognised by Scottish Curling. Approved Scottish Curling assessors may assess candidates for Scottish Curling Skill Awards.
There are two sections to each Skill Award; a practical, on-ice assessment and a written assessment. Passes must be achieved in both sections to achieve the Skill Award.
On successful completion of each Skill Award, an attractive signed certificate and badge of the appropriate colour is sent to the candidate.
At the Red, White & Blue Skill Award levels, each successful candidate will also receive a Skill Award t-shirt.
Any Scottish Curling coaches who would like copies of the Skill Award resources should contact Judith McCleary
