December camp

18 Dec 2012 – Thirty participants attended the NZCA Training Camp at MCI Naseby from 14 - 16 December, and all showed marked improvement in their curling by the conclusion of their weekend reported co-ordinator Peter Becker.

24 of the athletes were juniors, with one of those from Australia.

Over the weekend the participants were taken through delivery sessions, video analysis, curling drills and strategy sessions. They also viewed and analysed DVDs of World Championships and other game situations.
