Episode 68: Considerations for 1st year curlers -part 2: for coaches 150 150 Stephanie Thompson
If you’re involved in Learn to Curl programs or find yourself in a coaching role helping fresh curlers navigate the curling world this episode is for you: Tips and tricks to help you help them get the most out of their first few years. In this episode I go into detail on a few priorities that I hope coaches can find the time to sneak into their programs, practices & coaching session. This is not an episode telling you how to run your LTC, but rather outlining some key curling principles that can sometimes be forgotten to focus on. If you are new to curling, coach, or know someone who is new to curling give this a listen and share it with them. This is a 3-part series; with episodes directed at coaches and teammates coming soon. 3 tips discussed:
  1. Focus on fundamentals & fun before specifics
  2. Equipment is important
  3. Emphasize points mentioned in part 1 (Episode 66)
