Ahead of the 2018 Brier in Regina, SaskEnergy has announced their Future Stars for the event in March on Wednesday.
The Future Stars will join teams they are assigned to during the Brier to walk out onto the ice, and then get the opportunity to learn from the teams they are with while the future star is with the team.
Future Star Kali Ann Freisen says she’s looking forward to the opportunity to learning from the athletes.
“I’m really excited to go meet and talk with the athletes,” said Friesen. “My team is going to Sask Winter games this year, so I kinda wanna learn how they deal with that stress of being in a big competition.”
Matthew Halipchak, who was chosen as one of the future stars, seconded Friesens’ remarks.
“I’m just really excited about it,” said Halipchak. “It’s a new opportunity for me, I’m going to get to meet everyone and it’s going to be really cool.”
