Brainerd Lakes Curling Club?
Fran Holden Curling Arena Located at the Crow Wing County Fairgrounds
We are now accepting registrations for our October 16-18, 2020 camp at the Brainerd Lakes Curling Club, which plays out of the Fran Holden Curling Arena in Brainerd, Minnesota. The club was founded in 2006, and thanks to a generous donation, built a dedicated four-sheet facility that opened in January 2012.
The community of Brainerd is nestled in the center of Minnesota. With a population of 14,000, it has small-town charm along some of the most popular lakes in Minnesota. As the home of over 10,000 lakes, it is a quintessential lake destination that needs to be explored.
WHO CAN ATTEND
While our camps are typically for adults, in order to promote the development of the sport in the USA, we are also accepting junior players. No, (or little), experience is necessary. The camp is also open to Stick curlers and Wheelchair curlers.
Campers are organized in groups based on ability and experience, in order to maximize the learning experience.
Our camp philosophy is to provide curlers with the tools to make more shots and get greater enjoyment from the sport.
Our on-ice sessions will focus on developing a balanced delivery, consistent release and rock rotation, and of course hitting the target.
We will also teach you effective brushing techniques, how to read the ice, and the secrets of angles (along with some techniques that will allow you to throw those takeouts without compromising your delivery.)
We will also review RULES and ETIQUETTE, TEAM COMMUNICATION, and stage numerous STRATEGY SESSIONS including the new Five-Rock Rule and Mixed-Doubles.
Announcements regarding our instructor roster will be made on our website, our Facebook Page, and via email to participants.
We look forward to working with Mary Jo Hamilton and everyone involved in the Brainerd Lakes Curling Club to make this camp weekend a success.
Good curling and see you in Brainerd Lakes in October 2020.
