Laycock Looking for Strong Start to New Season
Saskatchewan’s Steve Laycock is taking a very serious approach to the 2011 Canada Cup with the first berths in the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings on the line.
That’s why he took time in July to head to the Saville Sports Centre in Edmonton for off-season training.
After winning the Canadian and World Junior Curling Championships in 2003, Laycock moved up to the competitive ranks and wore Saskatchewan colours at the Tim Hortons Brier in 2007, 2008 and 2011.
Last year, he skipped the team with Pat Simmons throwing final stones. The departure of Simmons to play third for Alberta’s Kevin Koe prompted Laycock to take on full responsibilities at the top position.
Joel Jordison joins the squad at third with Brennen Jones and Dallan Muyres returning on the front end. The team qualified for the Canada Cup through points earned in the Canadian Team Ranking System.
It’s time for you to get serious about seeing one of the best fields ever! Great seats are available just by clicking here.
