Position: Front end (have played all positions though)
What are you looking for in a team: Competitive Mixed Doubles

Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: I have curled since I was 10. I competed at the college level in Alberta for 4 seasons with 3 provincial attendances on the Augustana University College (2003-2004), University of Alberta & Augustana Faculty (2004-2005 & 2007-2008) teams. I also was part of the runner up team in the 2017 Alberta Sturling Championship (a style of 2-man curling as a slide deliverer).

Bio of Myself: I grew up a rink rat since my parents were in the Rec League. I started off just as being a “body/filler/spare” for them at the age of ten when they needed someone and my passion and love just grew from there. I enjoy passing knowledge on to other players and receiving constructive critiscism to improve everytime I am on the ice. Since my teen years I have been helping out juniors and new players on seeing the joy and benefits of curling, both social and physical.

I have gone from helping my gym teacher with the curling program in highschool through to assisting during junior practice times. New players in the leagues I have attended have always enjoyed playing with or against me as I would help them out if they wanted it and I have always been complimented on my sportsmanship.

I am more comfortable playing front end in the competitive level. I am looking for (can sweep both sides), but have played all positions in rec leagues & bonspiels (ladies & mixed). For the 2018/2019+ seasons I am looking for rinks as far east as Regina and Estevan as I recently moved to just outside of Virden, MB (20 minutes into Manitoba) and currently work in the southeast corner of SK, but am willing to travel for the right ream and for bonspiels/tournaments. I know the attitude, dedication and focus required for competitive play.

I have found Sturling to be a game that has helped with not relying on sweepers as much and love it! I have not played mixed doubles yet but I believe it may be a similar experience that I am also willing to pursue!

Position: Any

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

Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: I have curled for about 27 years now, and have been around curling since I was 3 days old. Curling is in my family blood. I have done some competitive curling in Alberta when in high school. But since moving to Saskatchewan I have not known the people enough to have a stay together team. I have won a few bonspiels over the years, but living arrangements have prevented me from ever making it to the big stage.

Bio of Myself: I am physically fit to play all positions and have a good mind for the strategy side of the game. I have not stopped playing since I was 5 and even started playing in men’s leagues when I was 11. I was the player coach of our high school teams. And have been trying to help teach others how to enjoy the game and possibly build their own skills so they may have the confidence to join a league.

What are you looking for in a team: Competitive U18 Women’s

Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: I have been school curling for 5 years and have competed in the SHSAA districts every year. I attended the Viterra Curling Clinic last year and will be attending this year as well. I also went to the New Holland Curling Camp this past summer.

Bio of yourself: I am currently in Grade 11 and work hard to maintain an above 80 average. I have completed Grade 7 piano and have won several trophies in the Sask Valley Music Festival. I have also been working every summer for the past 3 years; this year one of my jobs was to operate our grain cart during harvest. I started curling in Grade 6 and fell in love with the sport two years later in Grade 8. My goal is to compete in the winter games this year and in competitions. I am willing to push myself to become the best I can be and travel wherever needed for games.

Position: Skip – will play any position
What are you looking for in a team: Competitive

Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: I have been curling for 16 years winning high school provincial silver & gold (Alberta), as well as a college provincial silver (Alberta). I was also a junior provincial competitor in 2014 (Saskatchewan).

Bio of Myself: I grew up on the Saskatchewan side of Lloydminister which is why my curling accomplishments are mostly Alberta, but have been a Saskatchewan resident my whole life. I currently have a Bachelor of Commerce in marketing from the UofS and I work for 96.3 Cruz FM as an Account Executive. The nature of my job leaved a decent amount of room to schedule around curling. For the past two years I have been working hard to get into the best physical shape of my life. The mental side of my game still needs work, but I am trying. Other pastimes/interests I have include going to movies, eating poutine, and fishing.

Other Comments: I am willing to play any position needed being my goal to play at the Brier someday. If you need any further information please contact me preferably by phone, but email if necessary.
