Due to conflict with Exam Schedules, we've changed our date of our OVCA Junior SuperSpiel Qualifier to November 19-21, 2021 at the Almonte Curling Club. We hope that this removes any challenges to play in our event and continue to work with all our partners to find an appropriate time to schedule the BrokerLink-OVCA Junior SuperSpiel this season. For all eligible teams, the entry form for the Qualifier will be posted on our Qualifier site, linked on this site on our Qualifier tab.

The BrokerLink-OVCA Junior SuperSpiel committee is working to return this upcoming season. There are many issues to be resolved and some of these issues are within our
control and a number are outside our control, including Covid-19 restrictions and separate and related travel restrictions, our host club operations, volunteers and team interest. While
the rates of vaccinations are proceeding well in Canada, there are continual reports of new variants that keep many things uncertain likely for the remainder of 2021 at least.
An additional challenge is the change to the Curling Canada schedule this season and beyond that puts the U18 Playdowns earlier in the season and ahead of the U20/U21
Playdowns. In order to have our SuperSpiel and the two Qualifiers at appropriate times in advance of these playdowns, we are still exploring possible dates for the SuperSpiel with
likely changes in the traditional time around Halloween moving to the mid winter to align with Curling Canada's realigned schedule that has been confirmed for 2022.
We are pleased to announce that the OVCA Junior SuperSpiel Qualifier will be held December 3-5, 2021 at the Almonte Curling Club. We are still looking to confirm timing for the SOSSQ (Southern Ontario SuperSpiel Qualifier) and the BrokerLink-OVCA Junior SuperSpiel itself. The curling schedule for this season is especially packed due to the cancellation of last year's championships and the timing of the Ontario Winter Games and their qualifiers.
We are working with our curling partners to try and find acceptable timing for these events. We will continue to post updates on the progress of the planning. We are dedicated to the
development of elite junior curlers and thank all our partners who have been part of our community for the 27 years of the BrokerLink-OVCA Junior SuperSpiel.
