Building a Powerful Front End, with Craig Savill


Craig Savill knows a thing or two about front ends, playing alongside Brent Laing for over 15 years, the last ten as lead for Glenn Howard. In his incredible career, Craig Savill has often been credited with game-winning ticks and taps that make him a superstar lead. Considered one of the most consistent front end athletes ever to play the game, Craig's career highlights include two World Junior Curling titles and the 2007 & 2012 Brier and Ford World Men's Championships.

Craig recently made an inspiring comeback after battling, and beating Hodgkins Lymphoma. He returns to the circuit this season as a fifth for the top ranked Team Reid Carruthers.

We are thrilled to have Craig speak to our U21 athletes at the Crystal Slam.

This talk explores the unique characteristics and relationship of front end players, handling 
personality conflicts, how and when the front end should and shouldn't communicate and working with 'difficult' or moody back end players.
