Week 7 Update

Week 7 - Nov. 29, 2014

The Little Rockers continue to work on their push from the hack.  This week they added the “papa bear” push, which allowed them to get the stone to the ghost rings. 

All curlers had the opportunity to play skip and  “call the shot”!  Well done Little Rockers!

The Bantam curlers were most impressive this week!  They continue to refine their deliveries and were able to slide successfully between two cones separated by the width of the button! They also had the opportunity to play a three end game.  Everyone had the chance to skip and the Bantams learned that it is quite a different perspective for the skip!

The Juniors hosted a bonspiel today!  They had a great time using their skills in game situations and they met many wonderful new curling friends from Winkler and Morden.  All curlers received a goodie bag and a prize for their outstanding sportsmanship and shot making!    

Week 6 Update

Week 6 - Nov. 22, 2014 

The Little Rockers started off the day by listening to a riveting story about “Sweeping Beauty”  and "Goldirocks" before they headed out onto the ice to demonstrate their amazing sweeping skills!    They learned a new shot – the “takeout”, and had a great time rolling the dice for every well thrown takeout. There were so many well thrown takeouts that they topped 250 points!  Great work Little Rockers! 

Our Bantam curlers began the day by demonstrating their much improved brushing skills.   They continue to work at developing their push from the hack and 

they did a great job of transitioning between draw weight and take out weight!  Well done Bantams! 

Our bantams are learning a great deal from camera work. After some tips from Sonny and a look at their own deliveries, and their hack setups, on video, the Juniors went to work at improving individual aspects of their delivery.   By the end of the day they were all one step closer to imitating Brad Gushue.  Great work Juniors! 

Many of our curlers will soon be sporting new AMCC hoodies, which are being ordered this week. 

 

Week 5 Update

Week 5 - Nov. 15, 2014

The Little Rockers began the day by successfully guessing the phrase “We love our Little Rockers”! On the ice, they demonstrated their much improved balance skills by showing what terrific  “tight rope walkers” they are!  After a rousing game of “Musical Brushing” they showed us how good they are at aiming by sliding their rocks successfully between two cones.  Sharp shooting Little Rockers!   

This week our Bantam curlers learned to control their push from the hack by sliding out and stopping at cones positioned on the ice.   It sure takes a big push from the hack to get the rock all the way to the other end!  After a game of “Musical Brushing”, the Bantams had an opportunity to team up with the Juniors for a little game of 3 on 3.   They finished the day by learning what all the skip’s gestures mean! 

Our Juniors continue to work hard at perfecting their delivery technique.   This week  they performed for the movie camera by demonstrating how well they can deliver a stone!  After a game of “Musical Brushing” they had an opportunity to practice their strategy and skipping skills as they led their team of Bantams in a little game of 3 on 3.   Well  done Juniors!     

Volunteers

Our junior programs are organized and coached by volunteers.  We are most grateful for their expertise and time.  Please consider joining us on the ice with our young curlers. 

Week 4 update

�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?� 

Week 4 -Nov 8, 2014

Our Little Rockers successfully demonstrated their newly acquired knowledge about curling terms. They learned that rocks "curl" as they travel down the ice and they filled their tree with dozens of leaves, each representing a well thrown rock! Way to go Little Rockers!

Our Bantam curlers learned that how hard we push from the hack determines how far the rock travels. They learned to shuffle their feet when they brush and they were most impressive in their ability to set up to the broom and throw the correct turn! Great work Bantam curlers!

The Juniors challenged the parents to a friendly competition and learned that many of our parents are outstanding curlers and great sports! There were some excellent shots on all sides and our Juniors gained some valuable game experience. Thanks parents!
