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 Thursday, February 1st, 2024 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 Saturday, February 17th, 2024 the top five participants from each category will compete in the Hit Draw Tap Provincial Championships presented. The championship will take place at the 2024 Scotties Tournament of Hearts at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, AB.
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
