USWCA Sponsored Junior Bonspiels 

The USWCA tries to sponsor three regional junior bonspiels each season in order to promote interclub curling among juniors. The USWCA will provide winner and runner up pins for four events as well as a traveling trophy for the first event winners.

USWCA bonspiels are open to teams of juniors from the United States (under 21) and from Canada (under 19). Teams are open format (any combination of males and females). Bonspiel participants do not have to belong to USWCA member clubs. Teams can enter a USWCA junior bonspiel from any region. Teams may also play in more than one USWCA bonspiel in a single season.

Travel assistance is available for those teams that travel more than 150 miles by car or more than 300 miles by bus, rail, or air. More information regarding travel reimbursement is available on the Women's Curling Development Fund page, (Curling Development Fund).

The USWCA is looking for member clubs who are willing to host junior bonspiels in the coming seasons. The host club can elect to have the USWCA sponsor an existing spiel, it is not necessary to add an additional event to the calendar.
