Junior Competitve Program  

 

Who is the Junior Competitive Program designed for?
 
This program is exclusively for juniors interested in becoming national level competitive curlers.  This is not designed for juniors who want to focus on playing recreationally and going to the occasional bonspiel (we encourage the ATP program for that).  We will be preparing them for the U18 National Championships and eventually Junior Nationals (those under 21). Boys and girls will be taught together and in the future boys and girls teams will form. 
 
What are the prerequisites for the Junior Competitive Program (JCP)?
 
1. ATP Junior coaches approval and JCP coaches approval.  Our Saturday morning programs are designed for teaching the delivery and the basics of the game to be a successful bonspiel and league player.  In some instances, we may ask juniors to continue solely in the ATP program to continue skill-building to a certain level rather than be frustrated with the advanced techniques taught in this program.  
 
2. Commitment from the junior to attend the sessions and utilize available DCC practice ice to work on the skills taught between sessions.  Ultimately this program will be to prepare each junior for competitive curling and to form teams.  Therefore, there is an individual and a team component responsibility.
 
3. Starting Oct. 2021, the junior must be playing in at least 1 regular DCC league outside of juniors.
