Teams Rempel and Parkinson headed to 2023 Canada Winter Games

March 22, 2022

We have a new Team BC, and they’re headed to Summerside, PEI next year for the 2023 Canada Games.

From February 18 to March 5, 2023, more than 3,600 youth athletes, managers, and coaches across 20 different sports will come together to celebrate the very best in Canadian competition.

Qualifying games for curling were held over the past week at the Chilliwack Curling Club, and the competition was intense for the chance to be part of Team BC.

On the women’s side, Team Hannah Rempel emerged victorious over a field of six teams, playing through fifteen draws, and defeating Team Bryelle Wong in a hard-fought final, 6-5.

Team Remple is made up of skip Hannah Rempel, third Lauren Cochrane, second Megan Rempel, and lead Claire Ramsey. The team calls the Kelowna Curling Club home.

On the men’s side, Team Chris Parkinson played through fifteen draws to capture the gold. In the final, Team Parkinson slugged it out with Team Nolan Blaeser, in a nail-biter which was tied 4-4 heading into the eighth. Team Parkinson managed to wring out one last point to get them over the top, however, taking the game—and the final—by a score of 5-4.

Team Parkinson is made up of skip Chris Parkinson, third Neil Imada, second Graham Lee, and lead Jesse Tiede. The team’s members hail from the Comox Valley Curling Club and the Langley Curling Club.

Curl BC will hold qualifiers for the newly-minted Mixed Doubles category at the 2023 Canada Winter Games in the fall of 2022. Athletes who have qualified for the Games’ 4 person Boys and Girls categories are not eligible to enter the  Curl BC’s 2023 Canada Winter Games Mixed Doubles Qualifier. The date and location of this qualifer will be announced with Curl BC’s 2022-23 calendar of events publication in April.

All 3 teams will receive ongoing support from the Curl BC High Performance Program and Team BC leading up to the 2023 games in PEI. In addition to this support, teams will receive additional integrated support team members leading up to and during the games. This will materialize into off-season physical training programs, mental skills development and education from sport-specific and multi-sport experts.
