The second BC Junior Curling Tour will begin in July 2016 and teams with the most points will have the opportunity to secure a coveted BC Junior Curling Championship berth.
The British Columbia Junior Curling Tour (BCJCT) was established by a Committee to create awareness about curling and increase the number of junior/juvenile (U21) teams competing in British Columbia. Our goal is to encourage teams to enter the varying BC Junior Tour Events across BC and help support our local curling clubs.
There are several competitive junior events that take place in the province and our goal is to increase that number. The BCJCT provides a unique development opportunity for all U21 athletes and also provides a training ground for our up-and-coming junior stars as they look to accomplish their goals and ultimately be Provincial, National or World Champions. It’s so important that teams compete against their peers to gauge where they are among their competition and what they need to improve on. Let’s not forget about the many new friendships that are/will be formed when curlers come together at the varying events. The BC Junior Curling Tour will create some fun and friendly rivalries as everyone will be able to check out the tour ranking after each event.
