Welcome to the TCA Youth Championships
Grand Prize Announcement
We are proud to announce the confirmation of this year grand prize. Due to obvious circumstances, planning a trip with substantial travel is out of the question. We, the Goldline TCA Youth Championship organizers, were committed to maintaining a prize that will provide our winners with the curling experience of a lifetime. Development, excitement, competition and most of all a whole lot of fun were mandatory. We are pleased to say, we feel we have achieved those goals.
It is our pleasure to announce that the "A" Division winning Junior Men's and Junior Women's teams will be attending a 3-day high-performance camp with none other than John Epping.
The camp includes 3 nights accommodations, all meals, and transportation between the hotel and curling club. Over the 3 days, John will work on and develop all aspects of the individual curlers and teams. The highlight of the camp will be exhibition games against a top Ontario Men's team and a top Ontario Woman's team. We are excited to work with John and offer this to our championship teams.
Please keep in mind, with the uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation, both the Goldline TCA Youth Championships and the high-performance camp taking place is subject to restrictions allowing it.
