What Is Your Role as a Sporting Parent?

Posted on Monday, October 26, 2015 at 12:55pm

This season the Royal Caledonian Curling Club (RCCC) is hosting various workshops in a new initiative to provide junior curlers with additional help to develop their curling skills off-ice.

Our next workshop, ‘The Role of a Sporting Parent’ will be held at Lanarkshire Ice Rink, Hamilton during the second Asham Under 17 Slam of the season on Saturday 31st October. Positive Coaching Scotland, led by sportscotland, are presenting along with Alan Stanfield (RCCC Umpire).

There are two sessions on the day at 10.45am and 12.30pm and all parents, coaches, volunteers and club co-ordinators are encouraged to attend to receive insight on how best to support juniors in their curling development. These sessions are open to all whether involved with the Asham Under 17 Slam or not and will last approximately 45 minutes each. Sessions will be held at the café next to the skating area on the ground floor at Lanarkshire Ice Rink. Just turn up on the day, no registration is required.

Being a Good Team Mate WorkshopEarlier in the season during the first Asham Under 17 Slam at Lockerbie Ice Rink, Lindsey Booth, RCCC Welfare Officer, held a successful session on ‘Being a Good Team Mate’ in which all players attended (pictured left).
