Do you want to curl on the GB Paralympic team?

British curling has been an exclusively Scottish endeavour at the elite level, but attempts are being made to identify the best UK athletes with the proficiency and desire to compete for a place on the GB Paralympic Curling Squad.

A series of events, all at Scottish venues, have been arranged where weight control and accuracy will be assessed. The organisers warn:  this complex system is aimed at elite level athletes and is not for beginners as a “come and try event”.

Applications (deadline October 1st) are available for download HERE and information packs can be obtained from Amber Thomson.

More details on the program and eligibility can be seen HERE.

I found the link on Bob Cowan's Skip Cottage Curling blog, in a post detailing his visit to Sterling's recreational wheelchair curling program. Details and photos HERE.
