Athletes who take part will be able to gauge where they are among the competition in their age category and what they need to improve on

The second BC Junior Curling Tour schedule and guidelines have now been finalized.

The 2016-17 tour will begin in July 2016.

Teams with the most points will have the opportunity to secure a coveted BC Junior Curling Championship berth.

The British Columbia Junior Curling Tour (BCJCT) was established by a committee to create awareness about curling and increase the number of junior/juvenile (U21) teams competing in British Columbia. The goal has been to encourage teams to enter the varying BC Junior Tour Events across BC and help support local curling clubs.

The BCJCT provides a unique development opportunity for all U21 athletes and also provides a training ground for our up-and-coming junior stars as they look to accomplish their goals.

Athletes who take part will be able to gauge where they are among the competition in their age category and what they need to improve on. The tour will also foster many new friendships that are/will be formed when curlers come together at the varying events.

2016-17 tour dates

  • Kelowna – July 8-10
  • Royal City – Sept 23-25
  • Prince George – Oct 7-9
  • Vernon – Oct 21-23
  • Esquimalt – Nov 11-13
  • Abbotsford – Dec 9-11
  • Langley – Feb 18-20

BCJCTR points will be awarded at each event and, providing they have competed in a minimum of two tour events, the top two teams of each gender will receive a direct berth into the provincial championships.

The Tour is open to both junior and juvenile teams and you have until July 1, 2016 to register.
