Competative U15 Male looking for Team/Teammates

My name is Timothy and I am looking for a team for the 20-21 season. I am entering my second year of U15 eligibility. Curling is my passion and it is my goal to curl someday at a national level. I have been training at the Saville for the last two years and Sherwood Park Curling Club for the last four (currently averaging 6-8 hours per week). I have also been training one on one with Jason Ginter (currently of Team Tardy) every other week during the curling season for two years. I curled competitively with my last team for the past two seasons in the EYCA league and local and Alberta Junior Curling Tour bonspiels. I am a very respectful and positive person and I am looking to play on a team that has similar commitment and goals that I do. Though I train at the Saville Centre in Edmonton, I am available and willing to travel province-wide to Bonspiels and possibly even some practices. Previously I played mostly third or skip but I am willing to play any position as my primary goal is to be the strongest, and most well-rounded curler I can be. Technical/coaching reference available on request.

COMPETITIVE FEMALE LOOKING FOR A WOMEN’S TEAM FOR THE 2020 – 2021 SEASON

Hello, my name is Jamie Kuzma! I am currently searching for a competitive womens team for the 2020 -2021 season. I am wanting to compete at bonspiels, weekly league nights (if possible), provincial playdowns as well as practices. I will be located out of Lethbridge but I am willing to travel.

I have curled competitively for the past seven years while curling recreationally before that. For the past four years, I have been a competitive curler for the Olds College Broncos. I have had success in all four positions but am looking to be a front end player for the upcoming season. I believe I will bring a lot to the team with my sweeping and communication skills. I am a driven and motivated individual to succeed and I am looking forward to hearing from any teams that are interested in discussing further.
