Later they are joined by 3 talented U24 players as they discuss their ultimate origin-story, their training regimen, and what making Team Canada means to them. Naomi Peterson (womens), Grant MacDonald (mixed), and Alex Bedard (open) all share their mindsets going into tryouts, how they felt about the process, secrets to success, and any hiccups along the way.
