Calgary Youth Curling Association Sunday League
This league is a place to get started on a team and learn what it takes to get to the next level in competitive curling. As the older and more competitive teams grow they tend to advance to the Alberta Junior Bonspiel Tour and also transition into adult leagues. This league is the starting point for young people to learn and develop in full games and become real curlers! The CYCA weekly league feeds into adult curling opportunities city and province wide. We have seen curlers from this league go on to Junior National Championships and senior championships over the years.
The weekly Calgary Youth Curling Association league has typically been rotated around 3-4 clubs. There are additional opportunities for neighboring clubs to invite the league for a once or twice a season showcase. This league is where curling program youth begin their curling careers playing real games. They start here as young as 9 or 10 with the average age between 11-16 years. Upper age is under 20. Currently we have over 40 teams registered each year.
Who Will it Benefit?
Any youth who wish to try or improve their game of curling. It gets youth into an organized sport that is not $2000.00 to play or is so competitive you get left behind. The league encourages all youth to come out and try and by fundraising we can keep our entry fees to a minimum and make it affordable for all. With the right funding too any family who cannot afford to register may be able to be supported by CYCA to allow nobody to be left out.
