After an exciting weekend, the Ottawa Valley qualifer is in the books! Congrats to the following teams who will be joining us for the main event: Teams Marie-Elaine Little, Kayla Gray, Emma Wallingford, Jordie Lyon-Hatcher, Jordan McNamara, and Pascal Michaud.
The 23rd annual BrokerLink-OVCA Junior SuperSpiel is soon upon us and we are thrilled that our invitational field is now complete. For the first time in the history of the Junior SuperSpiel we have a Men's and Women's team from China and a Men's team from British Columbia. These teams are added to a group of National and International teams to bring another great collection of high calibre teams to Ottawa at the end of October. They will be joined as usual by six local teams who qualify annually at the OVCA Junior SuperSpiel Qualifier and four additional teams who will earn their spots at the Southern Ontario Junior SuperSpiel Qualifier that will be competed earlier in October.
The BrokerLink-OVCA Junior SuperSpiel will kick off at the Navy CC at 3pm on Oct 27th at our annual Pro-Am, where young OVCA curlers got to play with Pros from the SuperSpiel. Special thanks to the Pros for giving of their time and positive energy to make this a great event.
The SuperSpiel itself will kicking off at four clubs at 9am on Friday, Oct 28th and finishing with the finals at the Carleton Heights CC at 4pm, Sunday, Oct 30th. 98 highly competitive games will be played over three days at our host clubs Carleton Heights, Granite, Navy, City View, Ottawa, RCMP and Manotick. Local curling fans will be treated to the best junior curling anywhere. All venues are open to the public and the games are played to full houses. Admission is free and fans will be treated to great curling all weekend. Come on out and see the next crop of Olympians!
This year we are pleased to have strong international teams from Switzerland, the USA and China joining top provincial representatives from every province from Manitoba to Newfoundland as well as British Columbia. Headlining the field this year will be the defending World Junior Women's Champions, Team Clarke from Nova Scotia and the defending Canadian Junior Men's Runners Up, Team Horgan from Nothern Ontario.
