What are you looking for in a team? Competitive Men’s

Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: I have curled for 7 years. The past four years, I have curled out of the Okotoks Curling Club coached by Atina Ford-Johnston. I have attended the Alberta Rocks curling camp for the past 3 years which furthered and refined my curling skills. I volunteered at the beginning curlers at the Okotoks Curling Club. I volunteered at the Academy of Curling with Russ Howard on the new curler night and then my team was coached by Russ Howard in the one-on-one team clinic. For the past 3 years I assisted my PE teachers during the curling portion of the school’s gym program. I have won some small town bonspiels.

Bio of Myself: I grew up in High River, AB and have been in French Immersion since kindergarten. I was accepted into the Paul J. Hill School of Business. I received four scholarships: The Town of High River Scholarship for Academic Achievement, Character Development & Leadership, Delanoy and Co. Accountants Achievement Award Scholarship, Faculty of Business’ Administration Excellence Program Entrance Scholarship and University of Regina out of Province Entrance Scholarship. I chose the University of Regina so that I could continue my studies and continue to learn more about the game of curling. I take direction well, I am a strong sweeper and want to play the game at a high level. I think it’s interesting how each end of curling is different and that’s what makes strategy so important; something I want to continue to learn about. I also find the balance between the physical and mental side of curling interesting. I also like skiing, golfing & photography.

Other Comments: I have my own vehicle and can drive myself to the rink.

Position: Third/Skip
What are you looking for in a team: Competitive U21 Men’s Team

Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: I have been curling for 9 years and won several small town bonspiels, and placed second in U15 districts in school curling the past 2 years!

Bio of Yourself: I love the sport of curling and I really want to take it to the next level other than just school curling. I tried to get into competitive curling last year, but the team I was on did not work out.

Other Comments: I really enjoyed the strategy of the game and would love to play third/skip but I am a good sweeper so I am open to any position to get onto a competitive team.
