The Optimist International Club of Canada has invited USA Curling to send 3 boys’ and 3 girls’ teams to the Under-18 Championships to be held in Edmonton, which is located in Alberta, Canada, at the Jasper Place Curling Club and the Saville Community Sports Centre between April 1-5, 2015. In addition to the competition and banquet, there is a half-day of training by some of Canada’s top instructors.
This event is a wonderful opportunity for young teams to participate in a competition that typically includes teams from the Canadian provinces, Japan, and Europe. The Optimists want to emphasize that this event is designed to give young, developing teams a chance to improve their skills in a friendly, international championship. We encourage all qualifying juniors (see guidelines below) to put together a U-18 team and complete the application.
