Today marked the final day of the Under 16 Development League for the season here at the Cornwall Curling Club. This year 8 teams participated, 5 of which were representing the Cornwall Curling Club.:
Team Carver – Montague
Team Dalton – Cornwall
Team Easter – Summerside
Team Gallant – Cornwall
Team Lenentine – Cornwall
Team MacEwen – Cornwall
Team Myers – Cornwall
Team Shaw – Montague
This league provides an opportunity for development in areas such as strategy, skill development and coaching in an interactive game environment. While COVID restrictions presented some obstacles, the teams were able to complete the full 8 game schedule. A special thanks to Team Beaton (Cornwall) who agreed to play in the last draw due to a few teams being at off-island competitions.
As the league progressed it was clear these athletes are developing. Each team showed tremendous respect and sportsmanship. A special thank you to the Coaches who volunteer their time developing these young, up-and-coming curlers. The future is bright for Junior Curling here on PEI !
The Club would also like to extend a warm and genuine thank you to Robbie and Jennifer Lenentine. Robbie was the Chair and Draw Master of the U16 Development League for the 2021-22 season. Jennifer sits on the Cornwall Curling Club Board of Directors as Treasurer. The Lenentine’s are very generous with their time and support of the Club, particularly Junior curling and programs that offer opportunity for development and support in growing the game!
