Athlete Programs

National NextGen Program

Our “next generation” athletes are part of the next wave of podium bound athletes with the potential to wear the Canadian Maple Leaf on the world stage in the next 5-8 years.

Mission Statement

The National NextGen Program is designed to assist individual athletes in training, preparation and competitive performance. It is designed to add value to your training programs above and beyond each athlete’s normal training activities and to offset some of the costs associated with elite preparation. Funding and support is provided by Own The Podium and Curling Canada.

Depending on annual funding from OTP, up to thirty young women and thirty young men are invited to be a part of our National NextGen Program each year in Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Doubles team disciplines. Athletes fall into age categories of under 25 years old or under 32 years of age at the start of our quadrennial to be a part of this program and have been recognized for their success on the Canadian Team Ranking System, Canadian Mixed Doubles Team Rankings or other major Canadian championship successes.
