PEPSI Provincial Junior Curling Ch’ships start Friday morning in Crapaud, with 7 teams competing


The Pepsi Provincial Junior Men’s and Junior Women’s Curling Championships, for curlers in the Under 21 age category, take place at the 4-sheet Crapaud Community Curling Club from December 27-29, with four junior women’s and three junior men’s teams entered.  

Defending champions are the Lauren Ferguson junior women’s team from Cornwall and the Tyler Smith foursome from the Charlottetown Curling Club. Both skips are back this year, with Ferguson skipping a new team, while Katie Shaw has moved up to the skip position on Ferguson’s previous team.

Teams in both the junior men’s and junior women’s sections will play a modified triple knockout draw, where the winning team from each section also gets to compete in the next section. If a team wins all three sections, they will win the event without a championship round. If a team wins two sections, they will advance to a championship game against the winner of the other section and will take the championship if they win the game. If the other team wins, there will be a second championship game, with the winner of that game going to the nationals. If there are three separate section winners, the team that played in the most section finals will earn a bye to the second championship game where they will face the winner of a game between the other two finalists.

Live results from the provincial championships will be available at

Explanation for MA/WA and MB/WB:

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.

*Qualifying games have yellow text background on the schedule
