It will help you all be on the same page, which will increase your team cohesiveness and help you win.

Team Systems:   * NEW *

On the ice
Fabulous real-time, real-life scenarios of team systems:  roles and responsibilities of each member of the team.
• for four person and Mixed Doubles curling
• game management
• roles for front end in 4-person:  timing, clearing, sweeping
• roles for backend
• front end and backend working together
• roles in Mixed Doubles:  broom holding (who should hold the broom? And when?), sweeping, communication, all the things we need solid advice on to improve our MD game
• sweeping:  in 4-person curling and in Mixed Doubles including popping up and sweeping
• MD rules and how to play; strategy

This visual learning class will include (not limited to) learning exactly where do you hit the rock to make this double? What is the drag effect and how can I use it in my game? How do rocks spin and interact with each other. Angles! All of this comes into play in 4-person and in MD because of play to the middle.

This is going to be an excellent session. Can’t miss.
