The CCTC is a complete stare of the art training centre, open year-round, offering resources in fitness, physio, mental, nutrition, technical and tactical training for the beginner to the elite athlete. Using lasers, speed traps, and training gates to assist curlers and coaches in understanding the player’s delivery and the impacts on the thrown stone. Home to the first and only rock thrower, athletes at the CCTC have an opportunity found nowhere else on the globe. The ability to throw a rock consistently with the same selected line, weigh and rotation makes the Rock Thrower a wonderful tool for understanding ice conditions and how it changes with the number of thrown rocks, sweeping and other ice conditions. It helps athletes learn and understand how their sweeping impacts a thrown rock.
