The World Curling Federation’s (WCF) competitions and development team is running its popular Sweetlake Junior Curling Team Camp, once again in 2017.
The camp for junior teams, aged 13 to 20, will run from 31 July to 6 August, in Zoetemeer, Netherlands and will focus on team development and individual skills.
Topics that will be covered include – team planning, team communication and dynamics, team and individual goal setting, fitness, nutrition, strategy, tactics and preparing for competition amongst others.
WCF Director of Competitions and Development, Keith Wendorf, said: “The Sweetlake Junior Curling Team Camp started in 2010 and the WCF has been an active partner since 2013. The camp has steadily grown in popularity and is now one of the curling highlights of the summer.
“It gives young, aspiring and ambitious curling teams a unique opportunity to develop essential skills to compete on an international stage, at the same time having a lot of fun, and in the true spirit of the game it is a place to meet friends – who in future may become great rivals on the ice, but lifelong friends off it.”
Applications are open to all international junior teams, from WCF Member Associations (MA). The WCF offers special support by sponsoring free entry for coaches that are with a team and authorised by their MA.
There are limited spaces available at the camp, so teams are encouraged to apply early. Entries close when the camp’s maximum number of nine teams has been reached.

It works closely with and mentors established, new and prospective Member Associations and employs a team of Competitions and Development Officers (CDOs) to run quality programmes, camps, courses and produce resources to aid the growth of the sport.
