It’s all about helping kids. The Junior Grand Slam of Curling and Future Rockstars programs were founded in 2012 to give young curlers the chance to play on world-class arena ice and learn tips of the trade from our pro stars.
Marc Kennedy, Niklas Edin, Jamie Sinclair, Mike McEwen, Colin Hodgson and others have helped out with these programs in the past by sharing their vast knowledge of the game and providing memorable experiences for the next generation of stars as they continue their journeys in the sport.
The Junior GSOC features four local junior teams participating in a clinic and game with an elite curler assigned to coach each team. Future Rockstars is an hour of open ice for all of the Little Rocks and juniors within the community to come out, enjoy the game, and meet some of their favourite curlers.
Sportsnet and the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling are committed to investing in the future of curling and giving back to the communities the series visits. The Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling also makes a donation to the junior curling clubs within the community for having their teams participate.
