OTTAWA, Ontario - Team Homan and ThinkBeef jointly announced today that Think Beef has signed as the title sponsor of the ThinkBeef.ca Team Homan Junior Curling Camp. The new partnership was announced ahead of the fourth annual camp being hosted at the Ottawa Curling Club.
“We’ve worked very hard the last three years to deliver a successful camp for hundreds of junior curlers from across Canada and the world,” said Team Homan skip Rachel Homan. “This exciting partnership with ThinkBeef is going to allow us to provide even more opportunity to kids who want to grow up and become champion curlers. Our camp has always been about being the best person on and off the ice through physical training, mental training and nutrition.”
“ThinkBeef.ca is proud to partner with Team Homan to help support this important event for young athletes,” said Joyce Parslow, Consumer Relations, Canada Beef. “We have worked with leading dietitian and fitness experts to develop a resource, Fuel Up for Fun, to help families of sporty active kids eat well even with the challenge of busy team commitments. And the Junior Camp is the perfect opportunity to share this important information along with the homegrown women’s sports team that Canadians can all be proud of, Team Homan!”
Parents, coaches and young athletes can order Fuel up for Fun booklet to learn more about the nutrition basics for active kids – athletes or not! This free and helpful resource is great for kids 6 to 15 years old and can be mailed to anyone in Canada.
As a part of the Canada Beef family who represents the Canadian beef farmers in your neighbourhood, ThinkBeef.ca is dedicated to spreading the word about the taste, nutrition and goodness of beef.
The ThinkBeef.ca Team Homan Junior Curling Camp is a three day event that will give curlers aged 11 through 20 the chance to develop their skills on and off the ice to become better athletes.
Homan, third Emma Miskew, second Joanne Courtney and lead Lisa Weagle will be joined by two-time Brier champion and World Champion Brett Gallant (Team Gushue) for this year’s camp from September 20-22. The ThinkBeef.ca Team Homan Junior Curling Camp will also include instruction and presentations from many of the same experts that the world champions draw on throughout their season.
The camp began in 2016 with 32 junior curlers before expanding to 80 curlers and moving to the Ottawa Curling Club in 2017 and 2018. The 2019 camp sold out in less than 40 minutes and maintains a large waiting list.
The Ottawa based foursome is currently the #1 ranked women’s curling team in the world and has won a record 10 Grand Slam of Curling titles. Team Homan has won three Scotties Tournament of Hearts, a world championship and represented Canada at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
