USA searching for next year's team

USA are searching for the combination of players who will bring them back into contention after a disappointing 2011 World Championship brought to an end a very promising run of competitive results that had suggested medal success was close.

With two members of last year's team already announcing their retirement there was plenty of incentive for aspiring curlers to learn about the sport and perhaps impress Steve Brown, the National Team Coach, during four days of on and off ice instruction this weekend at the Green Bay CC.

Reporter Beth Jones of Fox station WLUK-TV was on hand to speak to some of the participants.

I am from the UK and sadly wheelchair curling has not really reached us on this side of the pond but it does sound like a very accessible sport that can be enjoyed by wheelchair users as well as the nondisabled.

Thanks for highlighting the sport, I run the ableize disability directory and will be on the lookout for clubs starting up in the future.
