18-19 High Performance Program

CURLSASK’s Director of High Performance Pat Simmons is proud to announce the lineup for the Tier 1 & Tier 2 High Performance Programs heading into the 2018-2019 season! The CURLSASK High Performance Program will strive to create an environment conducive to guiding present and future athletes/teams toward podium results at National & International competitions.

For the 2018-2019 curling season, the High Performance Program will consist of two tiers. Teams that achieve certain championships, points, berths, etc. will be distributed into either the Tier 1 or Tier 2 Programs.

“The Just Solutions Training Centre at the Twin Rivers Curling Club in North Battleford will allow teams a chance to train on championship ice starting in the middle of August – fully equipped to meet the needs of all High Performance teams and to give them the opportunity in province to properly train for the upcoming season,” said Pat Simmons.
