In April 2019, the Nordic Junior Curling Tour (NJCT) hosted the first ever NJCT U21 Mixed Doubles Championships. It included 12 teams from 6 countries curling at the Sundbyberg Curling Center (home club of Anna Hasselborg) for the “Spirit of Curling” trophy. Two of those twelve teams came from Canada and qualified through the Junior Slam Series qualification events.
Unfortunately the global pandemic ended last year’s season early. This year we are excited to announce that we are once again scheduling a series of qualification events for the right to represent the Junior Slam Series in Sweden curling against an amazing field of international teams. Qualifying teams will travel to Stockholm, Sweden, funded by the Junior Slam Series, and get a chance to add their names to the championship trophy.
We are hosting three pre-qualification events in which teams will earn points* towards making the final qualification event. The top points earners will earn an invitation to the U21 NJCT Qualifier on March 11-13, 2022 from which the winning team will travel to Sweden April 20-24, 2022. The first event will be held November 12-14, 2021 at Dundas Valley Golf & Country Club. The second and third qualification events will be communicated soon as we firm up date and location details.
Registration is now open for the first Qualifier.
