Respect_in_Sport.pngParenting a competitive curler? This ROCKTalk is for YOU! Parents are the unsung heroes of competitive curling, devoting money, time and emotional resources to support their kids dreams. But it's not always easy. Handling the infamous "car ride home", figuring out how this sport is organized or coping with the dynamics behind the glass are just a few of the parenting complexities. Non-lecturing and supportive, this ROCKTalk offers helpful tips for parents on ways we can best support our kids, manage our expectations and make sure we enjoy the journey along with them. Parents attending this ROCKTalk will receive access to Curling Canada's Respect in Sport online certification.Mark Allen, Ontario Director, Respect in Sport
