Curling Canada offers NextGen Women’s Wheelchair Curling Camp
Curling Canada’s National Wheelchair Program is hosting a NextGen Women’s Camp this April, in an effort to attract female athletes to the program during the 2026-2030 quadrennial and beyond

The camp will be held in London, ON, at the Highland Community Curling Club from April 12-15, 2023. Please complete and submit an application form by March 1, 2023 (click here) if you are interested in participating in this initiative.
