Video: Watch A Juniors Curling Game At Nashua (NH) Curling Club

Interested in watching a curling game played by youth?  Earlier this month I streamed some of the games of the Nashua Juniors Curling Bonspiel (ages 12+) coming out of the Nashua Curling Club in nearby Nashua, NH, and this is one you might enjoy as it was a well-played game with a nail-biting finish!  My 12-year-old daughter Chloe was one of the players and I tried throughout the game to provide some commentary about what was going on.

One of the great aspects about youth curling is that when the kids go out on the ice to play they are all alone. There are no coaches or adults.  When they go through the door onto the ice, it is entirely up to them.  All the great moments are theirs… as are all the mistakes.  They have to do everything to keep the game going.  They have to do it all.   All we can do as parents is be on the other side of the glass watching…. :-)

This video gives a good example of youth curling – the game starts at about 7:20 into the video.  Enjoy!  (And please sign up if you’d like to bring this kind of youth sports activity to the Monadnock region!)
