Top teachers produce top curlers - so the SFBACC makes instructor training a priority. Approximately one third of our members have USCA Level 1 instructor certification and several have Level 2 or higher. People who have taken these courses have said that not only did it boost their confidence as a teacher, it also improved their own game.
The USCA Instructor Training Program
The USCA has created a 3-level instructor training program to unify and improve teaching in the US. Each level requires progressively more expertise in curling technique and strategy savvy. Levels 1 is perfect for club curlers who want to become more knowledgable about curling and give back by teaching introductory curling. Level 2 opens the door to training other instructors and earning coaching certification. Level 3 is for people interested in making a major commitment to teaching and coaching. This level requires years of instructing experience - some at the elite level - and takes significant work to maintain. A description of the current requirements each level is attached at the bottom of this page. (This program was revised in 2008, so check with the USCA to see if your past certifications are still valid and what you need to do to renew.)
The SFBACC offers Level 1 and 2 classes - usually at least once a year. Classes are typically four hours long with 2 hours off-ice and 2 hours on-ice.
