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.
