(Reminder) Identifying Barriers in Emerging Elite Curlers – Workshop 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. He is also coach of Team Homan.

Curl PEI is excited to have Adam come to PEI and share his knowledge and expertise with local coaches and curlers.

The “Identifying Barriers in Emerging Elite Curlers” workshop will be designed for curlers to attend as individuals or as a team with or without their coach.  The Curl PEI Performance Committee and Adam will work together to determine the topics for the day; however they will be related to preparing to compete. 

Date: July 30

Time: 9am-4pm

Location: TBD

Cost: $25/individual or $100/team
