Using vision impaired simulation glasses

Vision Impaired Curling Course, The Peak, Stirling 21/10/2017

On Saturday we are holding our ‘Curling with Vision Impaired Curlers’ course at the National Curling Academy, Stirling. Brenda Whyte from Forth Valley Sensory Centre will present a guiding section and experienced coaches from the VICKS (Vision Impaired Curlers Kinross) will share their passion for curling.  Coaches will try out glasses designed to simulate various visual impairments and experience coaching some new participants with vision impairment who are trying curling for the first time. We hope that clubs find this session inspiring, and enabling.
