There is a time of year in all sports when team break ups, line up changes and player movement begins.And as the Scott Tournament of Hearts came to a close last weekend – that time began for women’s curling (the men are delayed by a couple weeks).
And with those team changes come disappointment for some and excitement for others.
I don’t think anyone has perfected team break ups, and I am not sure there is any sure fire way to “do it right”. But I will say our 2010 Olympic Silver medal team handled our dissolution the best way we knew how. That doesn’t speak as much for the ‘how” we did it but more to the “who” did it and the class and maturity of each of the team members.
But I will first address: Why did our team, after so much success, chose to go our own ways?
