New Season New Ice!

New Ice 2016 1

As the opening of the curling season approaches, the Ice Technicians have been busy preparing the ice surface. Phil Martin took some photos of the stages involved in ice preparation at Dewars, in a week when the external temperatures made for some really challenging environmental conditions.

The new timing of the second session has been instigated in response to curlers finding that the ice surface significantly deteriorated in the latter stages of their game.  By allowing the technicians an additional 15 minutes for preparation, every curler should experience the high quality of ice surface for which Perth is known.

Club Development

‘Developing club members’ and ‘developing clubs’
Two themes of the recent Coaching conference in Kinross (3rd /4th  Sept.)
Conference Leader Jane Booth from RCCC led an energetic and thought provoking day of workshop discussions related to curling clubs.

‘Developing Club Members’

Related to opportunities for clubs to hold on and off ice sessions where club members can improve their curling skills and encourage new members to contribute fully to their club.

Many newer curlers are coming into the game via Try Curling and then 2 years in the Virtual Club environment where regular coaching and the opportunity to rotate positions within the rink occur or through the strengthening Junior club sections at Ice Rink where curlers are participating in Skills Awards.   Clubs are being asked to consider their membership with this information in mind and devise how they can implement a programme in their own club calendar.
