Boston Pizza Alberta Curling Tour

2022-23 Alberta Curling Tour Schedule Released

The 2022-23 Boston Pizza Alberta Curling Tour will feature at least 11 men’s events, 10 women’s events, and 6 mixed doubles events. All events on the Boston Pizza Alberta Curling Tour this season are eligible for Excel Points, a point system used to qualify teams for the Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed Doubles Provincial Championships, as well as the year-end Boston Pizza Alberta Curling Tour Championship.

How does the Excel Points Race work?
Once a team has competed in an Alberta Curling Tour event, their team will be automatically added to the Excel Points Race. Any team can be listed on the Excel Points Race, including teams from outside of Alberta. Prior to the men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles provincial qualifying events, top Alberta-based teams on tour will earn direct berths into the provincial championships. In addition to this, the top teams on the Excel Points Race upon the conclusion of all Boston Pizza Alberta Curling Tour events will be invited to the Boston Pizza Alberta Curling Tour Championship in April.

Curling Alberta is excited to continue the Boston Pizza Alberta Curling Tour for the 2022-23 curling season! Our tour coordinates a schedule of men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles events within Curling Alberta’s borders.

The Boston Pizza Alberta Curling Tour has been created for three main purposes:
1. To Extend the Curling Season 
– increasing the number of events in each category (events stretching into early April)
– increasing parity among the categories, giving a reason for teams to compete within Alberta
2. To Establish Consistent Event Standards
– requiring all events to meet our minimum requirements in order to be included on our tour
– creating a schedule of events that will remain consistent from year to year, allowing curling clubs and teams ample opportunity to plan their season
3. To Create a Tour Championship (Men’s and Women’s)
– to reward teams for competing and excelling on the Alberta Curling Tour
– to finalize and celebrate the 2022-2023 curling season
