The Rock Thrower
About the Canadian Rock Thrower (CRT)
The CRT is able to throw the rock accurately with the same selected line, weight and rotation, rock and rock. This provides a wonderful tool for understanding ice conditions and how it changes with the number of thrown rocks, sweeping and other ice conditions. It helps athletes learn and understand how their sweeping impacts a thrown rock.
The CRT is great for testing different styles of sweeping as well as general proficiency in sweeping. The CRT is “quantifying the science of sweeping”. Video analysis shows athletes how various sweeping methods affect rock movement.
