The 2017 Provincial Under 18 Curling Championships are being held at the Charlottetown Curling Complex from February 24-27, with six girls and five boys teams entered. Live results will be available at peicurling.com/scoreboard/#!/competitions/2332
Last year’s winners were the Tyler Smith foursome from Crapaud, Charlottetown and Montague, and the Lauren Lenentine team from Cornwall. Lenentine, who skipped the Under 21 provincial championship team this season, is back. Ryan Lowery is the only returning member from the Smith rink.
This year’s teams will play modified triple knockout formats, advancing the section winners to their respective two-game championship rounds. If a team wins two section finals, they will play in both games, and win the title if they win either game, while the other section winner would have to win both games. If a team wins all three section finals, the championship round will not be played.
The winning U18 teams earn the right to compete in the inaugural Canadian Under 18 Boys and Girls Curling Championship, operated by Curling Canada, April 18 to 22 at Curl Moncton and on arena ice at Moncton’s Superior Propane Centre.

Explanation for P1/A and P2/B:
1. One team wins all three qualifiers: Championship Round is not required.
2. One team wins two qualifiers. They play in both X and Z (and win the event if they win either game), the other winner plays in Y (and has to win both games).
3. Three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* plays in Z and the other winners play off in X and Y. If there is a tie in number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to Z and the other two teams play off in X and Y.
