This event was where the Junior Slam Series started in September of 2016. The very first U18 Slam was the Phoenix. Kitchener’s KW Granite Curling Club has always played host to the Phoenix and we are delighted to return for our 4th year with this terrific early season U18 event. This year’s edition of the Phoenix combines both a U15 and U18 event into one action packed weekend.
The U18 Phoenix has room for 12 Women’s and 12 Men’s teams and is a great event for teams just returning to the ice looking for plenty of competition time, ice time, team and development time. Teams looking for a weekend together to gain experience and compete against a solid field of teams from Northern & Southern Ontario, consider the Phoenix one of your top early season events.
