Instructors

Hello everyone!

My name is Sarah Brown. I am the coordinator of the Adult Learn to Curl Program. I LOVE this sport and enjoy sharing that passion with anyone willing to learn.

The sport of curling is one of my many passions. I have been curling since I was 14 years old. Throughout university I played out of the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus in Camrose and skipped a ladies team to a silver medal finish at the 2015 ACAC provincials. In the four years since graduation, I have worked at the SPCC and curler on a variety of different teams. My newest love is the sport of Doubles Curling. I have played in the Alberta Provinicial Doubles event for the past two years and am making my way there again for a third time this season. Along with Doubles, I play on a competitve Ladies Team and a competitve Mixed Team. It's not very often that I find myself off of the ice in a curling season.

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 the Sherwood Park Curling Club is my home. 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 Club family!
