Elkford junior curlers rocked at the Sparwood Curling Club

On Jan. 17, eight of Elkford Curling Club’s youngest curlers headed to Sparwood to play in the Optimist Junior Curling Interclub League.

On Jan. 17, eight of Elkford Curling Club’s youngest curlers headed to Sparwood to play in the Optimist Junior Curling Interclub League.  Elkford’s two teams played against teams from Sparwood and Cranbrook.

The teams competed with great gamesmanship and respect.

“The curlers represented Elkford wonderfully by playing well and showing amazing sportsmanship,” said the teams coach, Carmen Murray. “Thanks to the Sparwood Curling Club for hosting this fun day.”

The Optimist Junior Interclub League gives junior curlers an opportunity to play against curlers of similar age and ability, which allows them to gain experience and meet others with similar interests.

These curlers are a part of the Elkford Curling Club Little Rookies program and attend an additional practice each week.  The next play date will be hosted in Elkford on Feb. 14 with games starting at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Murray encourages people to come out to the games.

“We invite [the public] to come check out the amazing curling talent we have in Elkford,” said Murray

Team One is made up of Riley Murray, Taylor Smith, Levi Rice and Eddie Chamberlain. Team Two’s roster is Declan Cook, Brayden Smith, James Fiset and Macy Murray.
