New U21 Doubles Developmental League at Cornwall open to curlers from all PEI clubs

 

The Cornwall Curling Club is setting up a new U21 Doubles League, intended to provide an opportunity to learn the sport of doubles curling (Mixed Doubles is an Olympic sport) and provide a competitive doubles league experience for teams of two (regardless of gender) Junior-age curlers age 14-21.  Over each of the 6 sessions, teams will get a ten-minute clinic on the rules and skills of doubles curling, followed by an eight-end game. There is a focus on learning the rules around tournament play, and a hope that experienced teams will mentor new teams. 

The league will run six selected Saturdays, following the Saturday morning U16 league, but will start on November 28th, with a 1 pm draw time. Scheduled Dates: November 28, December 19, January 2, January 30, February 6, March 13, (*March 20 is an extra date in case of a reschedule).

The drawmaster will attempt to construct the draw in a way that experienced doubles curlers will compete mostly against each other, with new curlers mostly competing against each other. While there will be a Junior Curling representative to guide at these sessions, it is recommended (but not required, as the instructional portion is intended to support development) that each team find a coach to help support and guide them.
 
Although every attempt will be made to meet scheduled league play dates, the Club reserves the right to re-schedule and/or cancel sessions without compensation due to weather and/or Club events. Teams may also reschedule their games if they can find ice time.
 
Teams can register online at CornwallCurling.com/registration or contact the Club Manager. League fee is $60 plus tax per curler.
