Canada’s best and brightest curling minds will gather in Niagara Falls, Ont., in August for the first Canadian Curling Association Summit.
The four-day Summit, scheduled for Aug. 24-27, will feature a blend of workshops, panel discussions and keynote addresses from a cross-section of the Canadian sports industry, all with the purpose of building the sport of curling to even greater heights in our country. There also will be a trade show for curling vendors.
Some of the keynote speakers for the Summit include TSN President Stewart Johnston and our very own President and CEO, Brent Barootes.
“We’re very excited about our first Summit and the opportunity to get people talking about curling and how to make it even better,” said Canadian Curling Association Chief Executive Officer Greg Stremlaw. “All aspects of the sport are going to be discussed, from the grassroots to high performance, and the more voices, the more ideas, the better. As well, the golf tournament and other elements related to the For the Love of Curling charity planned during the summit will not only be a great social event, it will help support our junior curlers and curling facilities across Canada.”
