Q: When will my team practice?
A: USA Curling will provide details on team practice times closer to the event start date


Q: What is the Junior Nationals Banquet?
A: Broomstones will host the athletes for a get together prior to the start of the event at a site to be announced in the next month. This has been a specific request from the athletes to get an opportunity to socialize with one another during the event. In consultation with many advisors, JN’23 has decided to do this the night before the event at a convenient location.


Q: Can parents / coaches / extended family / etc. attend the Banquet?
A: No. The intent is to focus on the athletes at this event and to give them the chance to socialize with one another without oversight. This, too, has been a specific request of the athletes.


Q: Will food be served during the event?
A: The Junior National Championships are not a bonspiel, in that food service is not included as part of the fee. However, food may be available for purchase at the rink during the event, but this is at the discretion of Broomstones. We would like feedback, and if you’d like to share your thoughts, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We’d truly appreciate it.


Q: Where should we get pizza? Sushi? A gym? Church?
A: Ask Patty Lee, who is our Local Expert on all things outside of the rink. She will have an answer for you, or find one and get back to you. Email her on: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
