Amber Holland will be joining Val Sweeting’s Edmonton based team for the Road to the Roar in Winnipeg next month. Holland will be the alternate player and also will be called upon for team time outs during the game. This will be Holland’s fourth trip to the Canadian Olympic Trials with this being the second time as the alternate player.
Holland brings a vast amount of national and international experience to Maryfield, Saskatchewan native Val Sweeting’s young team. Val has accumulated national experience as a Junior curler for Saskatchewan and as Team Alberta at the Scotties. Incorporating Holland onto the team helps to ease the learning curve for playing at their first Olympic Trials competition.
The 2013 Capital One Road to the Roar Canadian Olympic Trials begin Saturday, December 1 in Winnipeg and the results will be carried on the CCA website.
