When open borders in a sports practise is a necessity joined by the passion to share the knowledge of a prestigious coach, we get a perfect atmosphere to develop and activity like this weekend.

Gordon McIntyre was the person chosen to Support these Curling working days. As an expert on this type of technification campus, Gordon has participated in several campus and clinics all over Europe, managing them in places like Poland, Russia, Ireland, as well as Scotland where he lives.

On Friday 23rd, Mendiola was the first meeting. The most experienced and the newest players had the chance to open their mind to different ways to understand this sport. This session in a multimedia classroom was the starting point.

Jaca was the place for the practise lessons during Saturday and Sunday. The players, divided by levels, got the opportunity to be analyzed by laser and video devices. The use of dedicated ice was essential to choose the place to develop this practice where Alfonso Vilar offered the first ice of the season

There were games and technical challenges where the players quickly practise the new knowledge and improved skills.

On Sunday morning, a new theory and strategy lesson followed by another ice practise summed up the attitude to improve a game level for Harrikada players

Harrikada appreciates the experience as a participation success and opens a new way of coaching to develop in the coming future. We are sure we will have new editions of Harrikada Weekend.

There are already six times that the Spanish national team calls our player to fill women´s junior team for the international events. Far away are the first seasons where the players went to these competitions scared of big teams on this sport and they have settled down a good position to compete face to face their opponents

The national team (María Gómez, Lydia Vallés, Cármen Pérez and Ana Vázquez) knew how to recover from a hard beginning with defeats againts Czech Republic and Italy. They added two consecutive wins against a second team from Czech Republic and Hungary. A very hard work on Saturday that gave them the pass to play-off.

But…they wanted more, and once again, against Czech Republic, they did a very good work. However, the local team won and Spanish team got a fifth position.

These good results will encourage our player for the next event in the Junior World Championship in Lohja (Finland) from 2-10 January. Previously, they will play Ciudad de Jaca Bonspiel (1-3 December) to keep training.

Good luck Lydia!
