We are excited to welcome three very accomplished Canadian curlers to the Evergreen Curling Club during the weekend of April 4-6, 2014 to teach some of the finer points of curling. The Sonnenberg Curling School will be led by Renee Sonnenberg, skip of one of Canada’s top women’s teams and currently ranked #15 on the World Curling Tour Order of Merit. Renee is a two-time Alberta Provincial champion, a two-time provincial junior champion, and was the coach of the 2010 Danish Olympic women’s team. Last November Renee’s team advanced to the Canadian Olympic Trials.
Renee is also one of the lead instructors at Canada’s Four Foot Curling Camp – a well-known instructional school with more than a dozen ECC graduates. Joining Renee is her husband Les, an accomplished curler is his own right who has competed against in the Alberta Provincial championships and beaten some of Canada’s best Men’s teams. Rounding out the team is Evan Asmussen, 2012 World Junior Curling Champion.
The School is divided into two groups, with each group receiving a two-hour class on Friday evening, a five and a half hour class on Saturday (plus a dinner break for the Saturday evening class), and a two-hour class on Sunday. Registration costs $150 which includes all three days of classes. Space is limited.
The Sonnenberg Curling School is open to all curlers, including MoPac, Washington State curlers and Evergreen CC members. The school is best for curlers with at least one year of experience, who want to improve their skills to increase their enjoyment of the game, or perhaps to take their game to the next level in pursuit of regional, national and international competitions.
