Jeff Stoughton is one of the most accomplished skips in curling history. As an athlete Jeff skipped his Manitoba rink to three Brier championships and two World championships. Many try but few succeed in copying Jeff's signature "spinnerama", the trademark delivery he often entertained audiences with. In 2015, Jeff shifted from competition into a new role as Manager of the Canadian Mixed Doubles curling program for Curling Canada. In just two short years, Jeff has played a pivotal role in the rapid expansion of this new discipline.

We are honoured to welcome Jeff Stoughton to the launch of our brand new U21/U18 Mixed Doubles Slam. In this ROCKTalk, Jeff will share his thoughts on the future of Mixed Doubles, and the opportunities it presents for young athletes.
