Instructors

Joining us as Headliner Instructors for this Adult Curling Camp will be Jocelyn Peterman, Brett Gallant, Laura Walker and Geoff Walker. Brett and Geoff are the well known front end curlers for the Brad Gushue team having won both the Canadian and World Men’s Championships in 2017. Jocelyn was a member of the 2016 Canadian Women’s Championship team and Laura was a 2010 Canadian Junior Champion.

In addition to Jocelyn, Brett, Laura and Geoff, we will have a great support group of additional competitive World Curling Tour players who possess a combination of competitive play and instructional experience including Colin Hodgson, Bobbie Sauder, and Karsten and Selena Sturmay. This will allow for a very high instructor to student ratio of 1 to 4 for on ice instruction.
