Instructors

Hello everyone!

My name is Sarah Brown. I am the coordinator of the Adult Learn to Curl Program. I am no stranger to the game of curling or to teaching it to others.

The sport of curling is one of my many passions. I have been curling since I was 14 years old, most recently with the Augustana Vikings Curling Team in Camrose, Alberta. I began my university curling career as a spare, sitting on the bench. By the end of my last year I had progressed to skipping the women’s team with three wonderful ladies. We fought our way though fall and winter regionals, claiming our spot in provincials and going on to win a silver medal. From there, we continued on to nationals, finishing fourth.

Besides avidly participating in the sport, I spent a great deal of my time working with both young children and young adults to teach them how to curl and improve their skills. Teaching others to play the game that I am passionate about gives me a great deal of joy. The curling community is my family and I am always happy to have a part in expanding it.

I truly hope that anyone reading this will consider joining the Sherwood Park curling family!
