The 2017 Team Homan Junior Curling Camp wrapped up on Sunday with an excited and talented group of 81 curlers taking home lots of knowledge and memories.
Curlers from across Ontario, Northern Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Poland and Japan worked closely with each of us along with our support team who have helped us become world champions.
The third and final day of the camp at the Ottawa Curling Club included advanced sweeping techniques, mental preparation under stressful conditions and the Team Homan Shootout.
Campers also had a cute and moving surprise for us. Our World Women's Curling Championship banner was completed and shipped to the Ottawa Curling Club and it was the campers who unveiled it to us for the first time! Watch that moment here.
Thanks to all of the men's teams on tour who donated prizes such as signed jerseys and brooms which our campers loved. All campers walked away with Team Homan signed swag, photos, tools to help them become better curlers and individuals and hopefully new friendships.
We want to extend a huge thank you to our camp sponsors which include the Ottawa Curling Club, Pinty's, Egg Farmers of Ontario, Ottawa Police Association and Polar Marketing.
Thanks also to Ottawa Curling Club Manager Dalal Abou-Eid for her hard work, the ice crew of Rick and Jack as well as volunteers who helped pull off another successful year at camp!
