Skips are in the best position relative to the stones in play to make this call. Often the player throwing will call line for shots, but this player is not in an ideal position to accurately make this call, and so teams must learn to rely on their skip. Skips need to communicate effectively with the brushers down the length of the curling sheet, which can sometimes be difficult, particularly in noisy environments. Often teams develop predetermined hand signals to indicate when to brush and when not to.

In the closed stance, the leading arm is lowest on the brush shaft and the hips are at an angle to the stone. The player is closed relative to the direction of the stone’s travel down the sheet. Another way to compare the two stances is to first get into an open stance on one side of a rock; then, without changing your grip at all, move to the opposite side of the stone. By moving to the other side and maintaining the grip, you have switched from an open stance to a closed stance. The footwork used with the closed stance is a little more complicated since you are not directly facing the stone’s path as you move.

The brushers must determine whether to sweep the stone to get it to go through the house or, if it is a light shot, to leave it and not sweep at all. All 16 rocks per sheet are used so each player gets to throw four shots and brush 8 for a total of a possible 12 points per player. Success Check • Sweepers correctly assess whether or not to brush by using their judgement. • Brushers correctly assess if the rock can be brushed through the rings or if it is too light to make it to the house. • Brushers start brushing early and brush hard to get heavy or close to heavy shots through the rings.
