Today you can find Manitoba’s Reid Carruthers back into the full swing of his competitive curling season, but it was also a busy summer for the 2011 World Champion. Carruthers, who is a teacher by trade, noticed a gap in his province in terms of high-level camps for junior curlers during the off-season. That gap provided an opportunity for him to bring his passion for curling and love of teaching together.

October 27, 2016

It’s beginning to feel a lot like curling season. The weather is cooling off, leagues across the country have started running, and the first Pinty’s Grand Slam event is under way in Okotoks, Alberta. The World Financial Group Masters brings all of the top teams together for the first time this season. Previous World Curling Tour events have had some, if not most, of the big dogs in some events, but for this one… the gang’s all here. With the WCT’s top 15 men’s and women’s teams represented, each draw has nothing but big names facing each other. The first ...

Nobody ever doubted that Reid Carruthers was a good curler. He won the 2011 Tim Hortons Brier with Jeff Stoughton and went on to win the world championship the same year. After two more podium finishes at the following two Briers, a pile of World Curling Tour wins, and a couple Grand Slam victories, his résumé spoke for itself. But when Stoughton retired from competitive play, and Carruthers decided to return to skipping his own team, there were plenty of questions about whether he’d be able to continue that success. It didn’t take long to find out the answers. “Curling ...

This week, John sits down with Kaitlyn Lawes, a curler who, at 26 years old, has a resumé that most curlers would call an illustrious entire career. She famously won the 2014 Olympic gold medal playing third for Jennifer Jones, but that was just the cherry on top of four Scotties appearances, one Canadian championship, one World silver medal, and two Canadian Junior titles (which she won as a skip!). She’s also really nice, which is cool.
