Team Canada continues its preparation for the 2012 Youth Olympic Games next February by competing in this weekend’s 18th Annual OVCA Junior Superspiel in Ottawa, Ontario.
Thomas Scoffin, of Whitehorse, Yukon, made history the first time he stepped onto the national curling scene in 2007 at the age of 12.
Since my last post, I have come home from the trip of a lifetime! My trip to Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii was absolutely amazing.
So, where do I begin? Since my last post, I have completed grade 11. All of my exams went extremely well, and I have been working full time ever since. Between finishing school, working and training I have been quite busy. I miss curling very much, and I cannot wait until August when Team Canada meets up again in Halifax for the week-long Whitecap Curling Camp.
When I was younger, my mom decided to sign me up for a March Break curling camp. Kids went for about two hours a day for one week to learn the basics of curling. Then, in 2001, I watched PEI’s Suzanne Gaudet win the Junior Worlds as Team Canada, and I told my mom that I wanted to do that someday. She signed me up for my first full winter of curling, and that’s where my Youth Olympics journey began.
