Sweeping Success for Adult Camp at Stranraer

Posted on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 3:27pm

Twenty two RCCC members in addition to two brand new curlers from St Alban’s, who had been inspired by the Winter Olympic Games, participated in this year’s RCCC Adult Camp at Stranraer Ice Rink from 3-5 October 2014.

The first day involved games and filming of deliveries followed by a classroom session on delivery techniques. Saturday was a more intensive day with a variety of classroom and ice sessions covering delivery and strategy & tactics led by the coaching team of Sheila Swan, Marion Murdoch, Lee McCleary and Judith McCleary.

Adult Camp insetParticipants covered angles, weight control and sweeping during Sunday’s on-ice sessions and had their deliveries filmed again with great comparisons and improvements to view.

Thanks to the North West Castle Hotel, Stranraer for once again hosting the camp and providing superb hospitality. Thanks also to all the participants who judging by the positive feedback we received had a great weekend:

‘Excellent in every way’

‘Pleased I came along to the camp for a second time – excellent, well worth it’

‘Well constructed, well organised, hugely enjoyable’

‘Good opportunity for intensive on-ice coaching, practice and feedback in a friendly, supportive atmosphere and environment’
