The team hopes each selected community will rally around their events and encourage youth to learn about curling, skill development, but most importantly to grow confidence and have fun!

“We are super lucky to have sponsors that allow us to help promote and grow the sport that has given so much. Since 2012, we have seen the commitment from Decisive Farming and Crescent Point Energy and we continue to grow it bigger year over year.” said, Kirk Muyres, Laycock Curling – Third. “The special part of the tour for us is to not only growing the participation at the youth level, but also teach kids about dedication and creating lasting levels of confidence in our future leaders and Olympic Athletes.”
