If you’re relatively new to curling, you likely play front end on a team and never consider line call. And then, against all odds, it happens. Skipper calls in sick and your second’s out of town. You call in a spare but they have to play lead. Your third moves up to skip and suddenly… Holy Cow… you’re playing third!
The third is the heart of every team. The go-between the skip and the front end. A jack of all trades; the third needs to throw hits and draws with ease, understand the ice
If you are new to the third or skip position you know what a challenge it can be to call line. The person in control of the house is not meant to be a broom-holding statue. There’s so much more to it.
