Kevin Kyle Chair [email protected]
Brian Rice [email protected]
Mark Ward [email protected]


Eligibility:

All juniors born Jan 1, 1997 or later are eligible for the Canada Games Curling Teams.

Team consists of 4 players and 1 Coach.

Organization:

The NBCA is charged with managing the selection of the NB Canada Games mens and ladies teams. The NBCA has a Canada Games Selection Committee that is a sub committee of the Junior Committee. The Committee is made up of former Canada Games coaches and the provincial technical program co-ordinator.

Objectives:

The objectives of the Selection Committee is not just the selection of the teams but also to ensure that there is a development program in place that will increase the potential of Team NB winning medals. It is also intended that teams and players other than the eventual winners will benefit from the selection process further enhancing the NB Junior development program for the long term good of the sport.

Funding:

There is provincial funding provided to the Selection Committee for development. This funding will be used to benefit all teams leading up to the selection spiel as well as being directed at the final winners to prepare them for the Canada Games.

Selection Process:

6 Teams (6 Boys and 6 Girls Teams) will qualify out of 2 open qualifying events:

Qualifier #1 - Dec 2013 - Hosted by Central Zone 3 Qualifiers

Qualifier #2 - Jan 2014 - Hosted by Northwest Zone 3 Qualifiers

Final NB Selection - March 2014 Hosted by North East Zone

Canada Games Feb 12 Mar 1 2015 Prince George BC

A series of spiels and camps will be organized for the Canada games age level over the next few years. Check the NBCA Calendar and Canada Games page on the NBCA website nbcurling.com for news and updates.

Podium Project:

Additional funding has been provided by the CCA for selected athlete development. The NB Junior Committees normally does not favor programs that are only directed at a select few, however we feel we should take advantage of the funding and find ways to allow the development of the selected athletes to be leveraged by their teammates and coaches. Athletes will be selected by the Junior Coaches during the 2012 Kenny Coates.
