Draw

Please note that draw times and other details are subject to change.

  • We plan on hosting eight teams of each gender. Athletes must be 16 years of age or under as of 31 December 2013.
  • All teams will play their first game on Friday night.
  • Teams of each gender will be divided into two pools of four teams each. Each pool will play a round-robin with other teams in their pool; the top two teams in each pool will qualify for playoffs on Sunday.
  • Assuming a full draw, all teams will be guaranteed three games.
  • Each draw will have both boys and girls games played simultaneously. Please see the tentative draw schedule below.
  • All games are 8 ends with an extra-end if necessary, including playoffs.
  • Round-robin games will use the traditional coin flip to determine hammer and colour of stones.
  • Time-outs will be permitted; two 1-minute time-outs per team per game, with an extra time-out permitted in the case of an extra end.
  • Team ranking, based on draws-to-the-button immediately after each team’s first game, will determine the secondary tie-breaking criteria for qualifying for playoffs (after head-to-head win/loss in the case of two rinks).
  • The top two teams from each pool will cross-over for the semi-final games on Sunday morning, with the winners going on to the championship Sunday afternoon. Finalists will also play Sunday afternoon to determine 3rd and 4th place.
  • 7-minute practices will be scheduled for all playoff games on Sunday. After the 7-minute practice has been completed, teams will have one minute to throw a draw to the button to determine hammer/colour for that game.
