The Saturday Morning Under 16 Junior Development League, sponsored by Wendy’s Restaurants, starts on October 28 at the Cornwall Curling Club. Teams from all Island curling facilities are welcome. Seven teams have signed up so far, and there is room for more. The league is designed for teams of age to compete in the 2019 Canada Winter Games i.e. born on July 1 2000 or later.
Please ensure your team and team contacts are listed on the Junior League sign in sheet.
The league will be playing a round robin format beginning Saturday, Oct 28th.

Oct 28, Nov 4, Nov 11, Dec 9, Dec 16, Dec 23, Jan 20, Jan 27, Feb 10, Feb 17, Mar 10, Mar 24 (if needed)
Please let us know of potential conflicts with the above dates. Due to the busy schedule of some teams, it will be impossible to handle all requests, and some teams may need to schedule make-up games.
The entry fee per player is $40.00 + HST. (A $17 Curl PEI/Curling Canada fee will also be collected if not already paid at a PEI club this season)
The complete schedule and score sheet will be available on the first day of play (Oct 28).

1. Round Robin format
2. 6 end games
- If eight teams or fewer, games will start at 9:30 Saturday Morning on the dates indicated. If nine teams or more, there will be 9 and 10:30 am draws. The 10:30 draws will go on the first available sheets from the earlier draw.
- Score will be tabulated as follows: 5 points for a win; 2.5 points each for a tie; 2 points for each end won; 1 point each for blank ends.
- Teams are responsible for marking their score when they come off the ice. Players are strongly encouraged to play all 6 ends regardless of score. If a team does decide to retire early the other team will be awarded 2 points for the remaining ends.
- Coaches / Chaperones can go out to the ice when they see an opportunity to teach their team. The spirit of the rule is to allow the coaches to help their teams think about different possibilities and learn, not just call the shots for the team. Other reasons may include helping their teams with etiquette, speeding up play or perhaps interpreting the rules.
- Have FUN and Good Curling!
