Balance is the key in your delivery

By Richard Brower, VCC Member Services Coordinator

I’ve taught curling to countless groups and individuals over the years since I first started working in curling at the old Vancouver Curling Club in 1993. It’s been my observation from both teaching the fundamentals and working on my own game in preparation for competition that balance is the key ingredient separating most club curlers from those playing at a competitive level.
