Team Bio

“Captain Canada” Kelsey Rocque had a junior career for the record books winning back-to-back world junior gold medals in 2014 and 2015 — with different lineups no less — and became the first Canadian women’s skip to accomplish the feat.

She also skipped the Alberta Pandas to consecutive university championships and the team represented Canada at the 2017 Winter Universiade adding another gold medal to the haul. Rocque earned the extra duties of being Canada’s flag bearer for the opening ceremonies.

Danielle Schmiemann also wore the Maple Leaf at the 2019 Winter Universiade with skip Kristen Streifel. She rejoined Rocque in 2018.

Ferguson and Brown won three Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling women’s titles with Val Sweeting. They joined Chelsea Carey in 2018 with Sarah Wilkes at third and won the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in their first season together. Team Carey finished tied for seventh at the world championship with a 6-6 record. Ferguson and Brown joined Team Rocque in 2020.
