Room for Improvement ft. Phill Drobnick

The world mixed doubles championship has come to a close, Kevin and Warren share their final thoughts including takeaways from Canada’s performance and the potential for growth of the sport on tour. The guys also address the buzz on our Facebook group about the need for Tier 2 development and getting younger teams into major tournaments. 

Phill Drobnick, the head of the U.S. men’s and mixed doubles programs, joins the show to discuss how he got involved in coaching, helping John Shuster’s team pull off the “Mira-curl on Ice” to win Olympic gold and how top teams are formed differently in America than in Canada. Drobnick also talks about their new under-25 program plus the youth movement taking shape at the ongoing U.S. national championships. 

This podcast is produced by Warren Hansen, mixed by Amil Delic, and hosted by Kevin Martin, Warren Hansen, and Jim Jerome. Additional editing by Andrew Holland.
