Welcome to Juniors!
Our Junior Program is primarily designed for youth in middle school and high school, but does include some college-age curlers (must be under age 21 by June 30, 2014). Several of our older Juniors have competed regionally and nationally, and provide both inspiration and role models for our younger curlers. Juniors meet on Sundays from 2:00 – 4:30 pm, per the Juniors Program Calendar. They receive varied levels of instruction, participate in regular match play, and may opt to obtain more curling experience through bonspiels, league play and competitive curling.
The Potomac Junior Bonspiel will take place this year on the weekend of November 7-9, 2014. All Potomac Juniors are encouraged to participate in this fun tournament, which attracts teams from a number of curling clubs in the GNCC, our East-Coast region. This year, GNCC Junior Playdowns will be held from December 26-31, 2014 at the Rochester Curling Club in Rochester, NY. This is our regional youth curling championship.
Just as teams often travel from a distance to play at Potomac, our Juniors may also choose to attend “away bonspiels” at other curling clubs. Potomac Juniors may seek assistance from The White Family Fund for Junior Curlers, which was established to help defray the costs associated with some of these events, and to encourage our Juniors to compete.
