Laycock Curling, the 2015 Tim Horton’s Brier Bronze Medalists, and 2017 Olympic Trials qualifiers (playing now to represent Canada at the Olympic Games in Febriary) along with their sponsors Corr Grain Systems Inc. and Crescent Point are excited about the upcoming 6th annual Community Rocks events. This initiative is Laycock Curling’s way of driving participation by visiting five communities across Western Canada and teaching youth about Curling, sport, dedication, team-work and work ethic.

Numerous Curling clubs across the prairies submitted applications to host. The following locations were selected based on the excitement expressed in their applications:

After school junior clinics:

  • Avonlea Curling Club
  • Balgonie Curling Club
  • Hanley Curling Club
  • Leroy Curling Club

Grand Finale event – includes junior clinic and friendly game between local champion curling team and Laycock Curling:

  • Shaunavon Curling Club


The team hopes each selected community will rally around their events and encourage youth to learn about curling, skill development, but most importantly to grow confidence and have fun!

“We are super lucky to have sponsors that allow us to help promote and grow the sport that has given so much. Since 2012, we have seen the commitment from companies like Corr Grain and Crescent Point and we continue to grow it bigger year over year.” said, Kirk Muyres, Laycock Curling – Third. “The special part of the tour for us is to not only growing the participation at the youth level, but also teach kids about dedication and creating lasting levels of confidence in our future leaders and Olympic Athletes.”

“We are excited to partner with a great team as they promote healthy living and sport participation in our youth on the prairies.” Said, Ralph Wegman, CEO of Corr Grain Systems Inc.  “We wanted to give back to our customers in rural communities and help grow future leaders of our province; this is an amazing way to do it and we could not be more proud!”
