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 - 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!
