U15 Challenge

Concept: The BC Winter Games takes place every second year. Curl BC is looking to develop a meaningful competition for athletes who will be preparing to play in the BC Winter Games the following year. In addition to the event itself, Curl BC will run a one day camp for every athlete who participates in the event called a BC Winter Games Preparation Camp. The camp will feature top BC coaches and past champions at the BC Winter Games and Canada Winter Games levels.

This event will have a positive impact on the Long Term Development of U15 athletes by better preparing them for future competitions like the BC Winter Games. This will allow teams to play in the BC Winter Games and have it not be their first meaningful competition.
