Upcoming Mental Performance Training workshops with Adam Kingsbury

Curl PEI’s Performance Committee is excited to announce two upcoming workshops with Mental Performance Specialist – National Team Program (Curling Canada), Adam Kingsbury.

Adam Kingsbury is a clinical psychology resident at the University of Ottawa.  Adam presently consults for Curling Canada, Golf Canada, and has previous experience consulting for a number of national sporting organizations in Canada.  His doctoral research has focused on how social evaluation influences the golf putting stroke under pressure.  Adam is also the co-founder of Marble Labs Inc. – a sport consulting firm focusing on performance under pressure, and curriculum development for high-performance adolescents.  Adam played collegiate golf for 11 seasons, before realizing that he enjoyed helping others with their golf game significantly more than working on is own.  Adam has taken up curling as his next passion pursuit, and plays 3 times a week as a Lead who sweeps hard, earns a lot of post-round beverages, and is always smiling – even when flashing guard attempts.

You may also know Adam for coaching the Rachel Homan team when they won the World Women’s Championship in March.
