U-15 RockFest







Rock your skills, elevate your game!

After a roaring, successful debut, Curling Canada’s U-15 RockFest is returning next season.

The U-15 RockFest, with its strategic blend of skill development and competition, is set to build on the success of its inaugural season. This one-of-a-kind program offers young athletes under 15 the chance to hone their skills and compete in various singles and triples curling formats against peers from neighbouring provinces and territories. 

The event aims to provide young curlers with the skills necessary to become well-rounded players in all aspects of strategy and technical development and acquire the tools needed to achieve their maximum potential, whether they pursue a competitive path in the sport or play recreationally. Next season’s events will feature increased coach involvement and, therefore, more curler development opportunities.

“Since we introduced the U-15 RockFest events, it has become one of the most popular events for youth curlers across the country, as well as a crucial piece of our Long-Term Curler Development framework,” said Curling Canada’s Manager of Youth & Program Development, Dustin Mikush. “All four host curling centres and host Member Associations are eager to put on these amazing skill development events, and we know these young athletes will have a memorable experience in 2025.”

Curlers can qualify for the event through their local Member Association by completing a variety of shots and input their results into Curling Canada’s app, “Singles Curling,” on iOS and Android. The top curlers from each Member Association will receive an invitation to their regional event based on available quotas.

Curlers must be between the ages of 11 and 14 as of June 30, 2024.

For more information on how to qualify, please get in touch with your respective Member Association.

Youth curlers can find more information about provincial and territorial qualifying events, event quotas and app qualification deadlines later this fall.

*In Curling Canada’s app, curlers will self-identify under the event gender as male or female.

Curling Canada, in conjunction with its Member Associations, will run four regional events in 2025, with youth having the opportunity to compete at one of the following events:
