Curl BC has changed the current BC Juvenile Curling Championships from a U17 to a U18 and will host these championships on an annual basis in order to align with the creation of the Canadian U18 Championships commencing in the 2016/17 season.

The age eligibility for the 2017 BC U18 Curling Championships is persons aged 17 and under as of June 30, 2016.

In addition, playdowns for the BC U18 Championships have switched from 8 Zones to 5 inter-regional events as outlined below.
