Warriors Practice Curling at Connection Event
07 02 2018
WESTMINSTER, Calif., Feb. 7, 2018 -- Veterans gathered to bond and learn the basics of curling, one of America's fastest-growing sports, at a recent Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) event. Curling teams slide 42-pound polished granite stones (known as rocks) from one end of a sheet of ice toward the "house," their target, at the other end. Warriors learned some of the rules and strategy used in curling and took them to the ice to play the game. The sport can be played by anyone, no matter their physical ability.
Injured veterans learn the basics of curling during a recent Wounded Warrior Project connection event in California.
"This sport has a calming effect on me," said Navy veteran Lisa Kukula. "I also was happy to see that my fellow warriors at all levels of physical fitness and abilities were able to participate with me in the curling lesson without any special equipment."
WWP program events like this give wounded warriors an opportunity to relax, learn...
