Quote from a parent.
“He has an outstanding way of dealing with kids at their level - he is one of them! Lorna Carter’s son James (14) has benefitted from Campbell’s coaching talents for more than five years. “Campbell fills the kids and parents with enthusiasm for curling,” she said. “He has the ability to make players believe in themselves and that they can and will play for their country one day! But most of all, he lets them be themselves and enjoy the game, so they want to impress him and do well.”
During all this Campbell and the other coaches are keen for adult curlers, clubs or organisations to come forward for coaching to try curling or to improve their deliveries or tactical understanding, basically the session will be delivered to suit the participants.
