North Hill CC is excited to host Russ Howard, Mary Anne Arsenault and Grant Odishaw from the Academy of Curling from September 6 – 8, 2019.

These clinics are for the club curler, not for competitive curlers. There’s a clinic for every age and level of play!


THE SESSIONS:

There will be on- and off- ice sessions for each level of play covering the following:

BACK TO BASICS:

  • 4 Stages of delivery (stance, park position, line of delivery, grip/turns/release)
  • Delivery drills
  • Drag effect / angles
  • Weight control (hits and draws)
  • Brushing / how to be effective / techniques
  • Strategy (let’s get you thinking!)
  • Team communication
  • Perfect for those wishing to work on their delivery!

INTERMEDIATE SESSION: Includes everything from the Back to Basics Session above, plus:

  • Reading the release
  • Using the stopwatch
  • Strategy – going a little deeper
  • Season & practice planning
  • Mental preparation / Sport psychology

INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED / TEAM SESSION: Includes everything from both sessions above, with a couple of modifications. If you are unable to attend Saturday’s session, then Sunday is a perfect alternative for you as the content is very similar for both.

  • Team dynamics
  • Video analysis
  • Team releases

CLINIC DATES & TIMES

You are welcome to come to any or all of the clinics; if you are unable to make Saturday’s session, please sign up for Sunday instead as they are very similar in content. Sunday will have slightly more emphasis on team play rather than individual.
