Curling is a sport for all – those who are physically able, young, older, or have a disability.
Sydney Curling Club has the honor of hosting the only vision impaired curling team in the province.
We started out having NO experience whatsoever of curling and have competed at local, provincial and national competitions against both sighted and partially sighted teams winning gold and bronze medals.
If “we” can do it “you” can too!
Curlers have demonstrated to the general public our abilities – not our disabilities and that there is life after vision loss.
When others with vision loss hear and see what curling is all about it can give them courage to go forward and try something that they would like to do but did not think it to be possible.
It need not be curling, it could be some other interest and that what CCB is about - To work together as a community of peers that acts to improve the individual and community quality of life of the blind and vision impaired.
Come check us out at the Sydney Curling Club where we play on Monday and Wednesday evenings with practice on Friday morning.
We have coaches that are very patient and know how to work with persons with vision loss – don’t be afraid. (We were too).
For more information call the Sydney Curling Club or Louise Gillis 902-304-1276.
Physical activity keeps one feel much more connected with others and improves health.
