Brushing Details

Effective in all Travelers Club Championship play (club, region & provincials), CURLSASK recommends the use of WCF approved brushes as outlined in the brushing Moratorium.

The moratorium will not be enforced in Travelers play but all players are expected to sweep with synthetic brush heads (NO HAIR BRUSHES) & remove plastic inserts in their brush heads.

  1. The Provincial Host Curling Club will receive one direct berth to the Provincial Championship for their Men’s and Women’s Club Champions.
  2. Regina and Saskatoon Region will declare 1 Region Champion per Men & Women.
  3. The remaining 6 Regions will each declare one club team per Men and Women to advance to each of the Provincial. Three additional regions will be provided an additional club team advancing to the Provincials based on high entry of the ratio of the Club Champion teams competing at the Region to the number of affiliated curling clubs in their region. Ratio ties will be broken by previous year’s ratio.
  4. Regions with no Club Champion entries will not receive representation.

The only exception to this would be if there are not 3 regions that have multiple clubs who have not declared teams to the region, then a 3rd club may be selected from the region with the highest entry ratio as outlined in C. 1. b.
  6. If 12 or less clubs in the province declare champions, in either men or women division, there will be no regions required and clubs who have declared by the deadline can send one club champion direct to the provincial championship.
