Team Registrations Now Accepted!


Your Team Invitation

Team Registration


Hello everyone:

After 20 years, we are very excited to announce that we are now accepting Team Registrations to the Amethyst Curling Camp. Teams can now benefit from attending the Amethyst Curling Camp together to grow their knowledge of the game. As a team, you will be able to experience many of our top coaches from Ontario and other parts of Canada. Besides the development of your skills, your team will meet other young athletes who love the sport and wish to improve too.

As a team, you will have several classroom and on-ice sessions including:

·      Delivery Analysis ·      Sweeping Analysis ·      Strategy / Tactics
·      Practice Drills ·      Practice Games ·      Mental Toughness
·      Physical Training ·      Nutrition ·      Practice Planning
·      Goal Setting ·      Team Dynamics ·      And Much More!

The cost for this weeklong training camp be $3,524.00 + HST ($456.00) = $3,980.00 per team or $881.00 + HST ($114.00) = $995.00 per individual. The camp cost includes accommodations, meals, coaching, and instruction, as well as bus transportation during the camp. It will also include all the extra events we are planning: swimming, mini-putt, a dance, a camp T-shirt and a camp picture. Preference for team registrations will be given to Northern Ontario curling teams. Ontario Curling Association teams are welcome to register and attend, with preference given to those teams who have not yet signed-up to attend the Trillium Curling Camp.

Our team registration form can be accessed and downloaded online, via both the Northern Ontario Curling Association website: or the Amethyst Curling Camp website: (under the heading: ‘Registration’). Should you wish to have a hard-copy of the registration forms mailed to you, we ask that you please contact the Northern Ontario Curling Association office.

If you decide to come to the Amethyst Curling Camp as a team, your team coach is more than welcome to attend with you! Your coach will be allowed to listen and work with you throughout the week, but the cost for your coach to attend will be at the team’s own expense. Should your coach wish to attend, please have them contact the Camp Director, Ryan Lafraniere for more information.

Sudbury itself offers us an absolutely great venue! We are again at Countryside Arena, the perfect facility for our use. Laurentian University is where we will stay again this year; a university setting that is a terrific spot for our campers. We will once again be offering a bus service (for the northwestern Ontario corridor down Highway 11 through Timmins) to and from the Amethyst Curling Camp in Sudbury. The bus transportation form can also be accessed and downloaded online. We ask that our bus transportation form also be mailed-in with your registration form. This bus is certainly a great assistance with transportation.

The registration form and bus transportation form are to be sent to Shelley Hunter, whose address is at the end of this introductory letter. Shelley will be coordinating the acceptance of registrations. We suggest you send the applications by mail or Priority Post and keep a record of the tracking number. Please do NOT use any courier service that requires a signature upon receipt.

If you decide to make the Amethyst Curling Camp a part of your summer plans (as a team), you will be placed in a ‘Team Group’ to hone your skills. Individual campers, on the other hand, will be placed in one of three groupings: Red-Blue, Green-Purple, or Gold-Black. For more detailed information about individual registrations, please read the definitions on the registration form or in the Amethyst brochure.

Registration to begin our curling camp will take place at Laurentian University between 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm on Sunday, July 2, 2017. A map and other important materials will be sent to you in late May or early June. Camper pickup will be on Friday, July 7, 2017 at 1:30 pm at Laurentian University.

We hope that you will join us for another great year!
