Fifteen athletes engaged themselves in a very informative evening led by Tony Zummack (Head of Coaching, British Curling) and Dave Leith (Strength and Conditioning Coach, British Curling.)  After an hour of theory and discussion around sweeping technique, synthetic and hair brooms & how to prepare to be the best sweeper athletes took to the ice to practice their technique and take part in various drills.

AcademyFurther workshops are currently being planned for the 2016-2017 season and will be available to teams who have a member within Academy.

Many thanks to Tony and Dave for sharing their expertise with Academy.
