Visually Impaired Curling
Though many may assume that it would be near impossible to curl with a vision impairment, it has proved to be a sport that can be mastered by effort, coupled with clear communication and teamwork. Vision Impaired Curling is a fast growing discipline throughout the world’s curling nations
In October 2010 we were privileged to host the first International Conference on Vision Impaired Curling, we were delighted that 3 delegates made the long trip from Canada to attend the Conference and share their knowledge with us. It has been established in Canada for over 30 years and it has many clubs throughout the country. The Canadian Vision Impaired Curling Championships is held annually and in 2011 seven teams participated representing 6 different provinces.
Have you stopped curling because of deteriorating sight but would like to participate again? Do you have a vision impairment and interested in trying a new activity? Are you interested in introducing Vision Impaired Curling to your area or undertaking the Coaching Vision Impaired Curling Coaching Module? If so, we would like to hear from you!!
