Testimonial Team Camarena
In late September 2022, Asham Curling sponsored seven Mexican women curlers to attend a skill development camp in Morris, Manitoba. We trained, learned, played and bonded over a four-day period under the guidance and instruction of Lorne and Chris Hamblin, top-notch Canadian Level IV coaches and founders of the Cargill Curling Training Centre.
Our days were filled with skills drills documented on multi-angle videos that helped us understand and improve our deliveries and sweeping. Using their unique robot, the Canadian Rock Thrower, we learned about true ice and effective sweeping technique. In the warm room, we had strategy and mental resilience sessions that became crucial later on in the competition. Our hosts also organized scrimmages with local teams so we could apply the skills learned during our training in a competitive setting. Our debriefing sessions further allowed us to fine-tune our team roles. We were also given the opportunity to talk with pro-curler Kate Cameron who gave us insights (on and off the ice) into what it takes to perform at the elite level.
In early November, four of the women who attended the Asham-sponsored camp—Karla Martinez, Veronica Huerta, Estefana Quintero, and Adriana Camarena—medaled silver for Mexico in the inaugural 2022 Pan Continental Curling Cup, B-Division in Calgary. Asham Curling and the Cargill Curling Training Centre set us on the road to excellence, and we are looking forward to returning this year to continue developing our skills!
