Five berths were awarded at playdowns at Osoyoos Curling Club in November, with two junior women’s teams and three junior men’s teams clinching spots.

Eight other teams earned berths earlier in November because they earned the most points on the BC Junior Curling Tour. Teams were able to take part in a total of five BC Junior Curling Tour events held across the province. Points were awarded at each event.

The championship will be held as an eight-team round robin with a four-team page playoff. The scores will be updated at http://playdowns.curlbc.ca.
