Juvenile Bonspiel

The North Hill Club instituted a youth bonspiel in 1997 having both a Junior and Intermediate (now known as Juvenile) divisions. Our intent was to promote competitive curling among our youth thus develop their skills. At the time, there were very few choices for them. All the other spiels mixed juniors and juveniles together. Our bonspiel provided a venue for the younger teams to compete against their peers as well as an event for the older teams.  By 2006, other venues were catering to junior spiels and it became evident that the “better” teams entered because of the money being offered as prizes. Since we were into this for development, the Club opted to concentrate on the younger teams.

Curling Canada now holds an U-18 National Championship!

As a result the age requirements of this bonspiel have been changed to be in alignment with Curling Alberta and Curling Canada. That is 17 & Under as of June 30, 2019 (Born on or since July 1, 2001)

Date: October 12 – 13, 2019

Draw: NHCC Thanksgiving spiel 2018 Draw

Rules: 2018 North Hill U18 Bonspiel rules

    We are now playing with the 5 rock rule in the FGZ as per Curling Canada rules in effect starting this season.  Under the 5-Rock rule, teams are not permitted to eliminate their opponent's rocks that are sitting in the free guard zone until five stones have been played in every end.  Players can still hit the guards; they just are not allowed to knock them out of play.
