Curling Talent ID Day
Our recent Curling Talent ID day, at the National Academy, on Saturday 9th September was a roaring success. Held in partnership with British Curling and Scottish Disability Sport; the purpose of the day was to find active athletes from other sports, looking for a new challenge. Athletes enjoyed an in-depth presentation from Sheila Swan, Head coach of the British Wheelchair Paralympic Team. Sheila covered the various adaptations available, as well as the programme pathway to the Paralympics. This was followed by some expert coaching from Sheila and Tom Killin, Assistant Coach to the British Team. Everyone involved showed enormous commitment and progress in such a short space of time, and there are even one or two earmarked to go further. Watch this space…
Getting more people involved in wheelchair curling is a huge priority as we approach the Winter Paralympics next year; all the way from grass roots to those with serious potential.
Any active athletes who are still keen to be considered for wheelchair curling but could not make it to the day, are asked to contact Sheila Swan directly.
