"The European Curling Tour (WCT-E) announces the start of an elite Junior Curling Tour. The tour is designed for the best European junior teams to test their skills against their direct competitors on a regular basis in international competition. We have many top junior teams wanting to play in the WCT-E events every year, but for obvious reasons they can’t always be accommodated. This tour will be a series of competitive events throughout the season and the 2 winners, men’s and women’s, will have a spot reserved for them at each of the following seasons WCT-E events.
As with the men’s and women’s WCT-E events, teams will collect points at all of the events for each of the top 8 finishes. These points will be accumulated for an over all ranking. There will be a page on the WCT-E website(in development) dedicated to the juniors with tour information, rules, event information, team information, international points and ranking etc
EJCT Chairman, under the Supervision of the WCT-E, will be Sune Frederiksen (Czech/Denmark). In his committee at the moment are Ole Ingvaldsen (Norway) and Rhona Martin (Scotland) with one or 2 more additions coming in the near future. This Seasons events will take place in:
Further expansion and development of the EJCT will take place in the upcoming seasons.
We hope this will continue to help the development of young teams and provide a fluid stepping stone as they go on to play in International Men’s and Women’s competition."
