Dates and survey for youth curlers

February 18, 2021

Curl BC has compiled a schedule of events with age eligibility in order to make it easier for youth teams to plan their season ahead.

We are also launching a new tool to help youth curlers looking to compete next season. The tool will make it easier for anyone who does not currently have a team to form team(s). We encourage curlers to use the tool here.

As previously announced, over the next two seasons, Curling Canada will operate some new events to fill the gap for players who aged out of juniors (U21) competition during the pandemic.

As well, a proposal for a new U20 Mixed Doubles event is in the works. A new regional U15 event is also planned.

Anyone with any questions can contact Will Sutton at wsutton@curlbc.ca.
