The objective of a Royal Club Masterclass is to let club curlers experience something of what performance players are taught and learn during their training sessions. And so today at the Kinross rink some thirty-four curlers from all over Scotland found out all about split timing, angles and video analysis. The coaches for the day on the ice were Cate Brewster, Lynne Robertson, Tom Pendreigh, Sheila Swan and Claire Milne. Rhona Martin fielded questions on many aspects of the sport in an informal classroom session, and the afternoon was rounded off with a tactics session.
Earlier in the day sixteen RCCC coaches, many from the Kinross Curling School, had the opportunity too to learn from the experts and they then helped out with the club curler sessions in the afternoon.
The day was organised by RCCC Development Manager Judith McFarlane, in association with Ena Stevenson, the coaching co-ordinator at Kinross.
A further masterclass is scheduled for Hamilton next month and is already oversubscribed.
