About the event
All members of the team will also play Singles. Players will throw a set number of shots (different weights, different areas of the sheet, both turns), scores will be recorded. The foundational skills involved in this competition are critical for all successful curlers to have in their skill set.
Here’s where the competition gets fun! Scores from the Triples competition and the Singles Competition will be combined to create an aggregate score, which will be used to seed teams for the fours competition! Each team will play two traditional fours games (6 ends each) on the final day of the competition to determine the Bronze, Silver and Gold Medalists of the U15 Challenge Cup!
Take your first road trip! Enter your first Curling Canada Competition! Learn about two new disciplines that will raise your game to the next level!

The U15 Challenge Cup Events are a competition for youth curlers with teams comprised of four players. For the 2022-2023 season the age restriction is for players aged fourteen (14) or younger as of June 30, 2022 (born on or after July 1, 2007).
Any combination of players may be utilized (4 male, 4 female, or 4 mixed). Athletes may be from any CurlON- or NOCA-affiliated club. Teams can be of any skill level and composition of players; all players will have to play all positions, therefore having a traditional skip, third, etc. is not necessary. Out-of-province players are welcome, but they must come from a Curling Canada Member Association affiliated Club.
Each player and coach MUST complete a Curler Profile. Before a team can register, one member of the team (a U15 curler) must have a Profile. All players will also create a Sideline Learning profile and complete the U15 Athlete portfolio. Coaches, regardless of whether they are certified or not, are required to complete mandatory coach training (see below).
Teams can register below for a specific event. NOTE: Each player will have to visit this site and click on the Competition Link in the table below to link their Curler Profile with the specific competition.
Coach mandatory training
Certified Coaches will receive Professional Development Credits towards their NCCP Maintenance of Certification – but you don’t need to be certified or even a coach to help a team on the ice during this event.
Any coach accompanying a team to this event must create a Sideline Learning profile, and complete the U15 coach portfolio. For more information on training required for competitions, please visit our Safe Sport Information Page.
