Hit Draw Tap (HDT) is a youth skills competition where kids age 6-13 compete as individuals. HDT will group kids into three different age categories (6-8, 9-10 & 11-13), and perform three different shots – a “hit,” a “draw” and a “tap.” The difficulties of the skills are modified based on the age of the child.
Curling clubs across Alberta are encouraged to host an HDT competition as part of their Junior Program whenever it best suits them. We anticipate that each club will need an hour and a half to two hours to complete their competition. All we ask is that all competition results must be entered into the Curling Canada database by Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at 12:00 pm.
All participants will be compared to those in similar age groups from clubs across the province on a “Provincial Leaderboard” that can be accessed online by the public at: www.hitdrawtap.ca. On Sunday, January 26, 2020, the top five participants (and any ties) from each category will qualify to compete in the Hit Draw Tap presented by Tim Hortons Provincial Championship taking place at the 2020 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts at The Murray Arena in Okotoks.
If you’re already a curler, bring a friend. They don’t need to be a curler or a member of a club to compete
