Top young curling teams from around the world will descend upon Oshawa December 27-29, 2017 for the 37th annual Toronto Curling Association (TCA) Youth Championship.

This event is one of the most highly anticipated for young curlers both locally and internationally. It brings together both competitive and newly competitive curlers and features two categories for athletes to enter: Under-18 and Under-21.

Announced at a press conference on July 11, this event will be hosted by the Oshawa Curling Club and Oshawa Golf & Curling Club. Oshawa mayor John Henry was on-hand to welcome the Championship to the City and show support for the event.

Event Chair Jonathan Giancroce is taking over the reins of the event committee and brings with him great knowledge and exuberance.

“The TCA Youth Championship has always been the stepping stone to many great competitive curling careers,” says Giancroce. “I am excited to be part of such a historical event that will be hosted in a historical city.”

This event is near and dear to Giancroce’s heart, as he participated in the Championship as a junior curler.

“Playing in this championship as a junior lead me to many different competitive curling opportunities,” says Giancroce. “I want to give young curlers that opportunity and more.”

This annual event has seen many past participants continue to pursue a competitive curling career and go on to become provincial, Canadian and world champions.

“The TCA is excited to be launching the 37th edition of its premiere youth championship event,” says TCA President Grace Bugg. “It’s an important event that has seen many of Canada’s best curlers participate, as well as being a fun event for the region’s club curlers. We welcome curlers at all levels to participate.”
