Development Tool for Youth Curlers
Curling Canada has launced it’s Singles Curling App where U15 athletes across Canada can record scores to qualify their regional U15 RockFest competition. For 2022, the U15 competition will be virtual and awards will be mailed to the top three athletes in both gender events with the highest scores in each region. BC is grouped into the U15RockFest West with AB, NT, and YT.
Deadline to enter scores for the 2021-22 season is April 3, 2022
About the competition:
“We are really excited to get our new Singles curling format off the ground at the youth level this season using our new Singles App,” continued Radford. “Under-15 curlers can practice with their coach and throw 12 pre-determined shots at their local curling centre. After the twelve shots, curlers will get two ‘mulligans’ or re-throws to replace two of their lowest scored shots. On the Leaderboard, young curlers will be able to see how their scores compare to those in their home province or territory and those across the country. We are happy that we can at least offer a U15 virtual competition to those who are able to practice this season. We look forward to building on the momentum that we can get started this season and can’t wait to see where we can go with this new Singles discipline.”
