2013-2014 Ontario School Championships
The Gore Mutual Insurance Company is proud to once again sponsor the Ontario School Curling Championships, the finals being held at the Galt Curling Club in Cambridge, Ontario on February 13-15, 2014. This championship, with its inception in 1948, is the oldest competed for trophy in high school sports in Ontario and the Gore Mutual Insurance Company has been a sponsor since its inception. Eight Boys and Eight Girls high school teams from across Ontario compete at the Provincials for the coveted Gore Trophy and Gore Bowl.
The qualification process begins with the Zone Qualifiers in December or January (select the Competition link above for detailed Rules and Registration Forms and the Zone link for Zone Locations/Dates and convenor contact information). The A-side and B-side winners in each of the Zone Qualifiers then advance to the Regional Playdowns (Feb. 1-2, 2014) -- it is from here that the teams competing at the Provincial Championships are selected. Accommodations for those teams qualifying for the Provincials are provided by the host committee.
The competition is open to all male and female students enrolled full-time in the year of competition. They must be in regular attendance, be making satisfactory academic progress and meet all OFSAA eligibility requirements. The committee encourages you to enter your high school team(s) -- there is no limit to the number of teams that may participate from a school.
The Ontario School Curling Championship events compliment the OFSAA Championships, allowing curlers further opportunity to compete, develop their skills, make new friends and represent their schools.
Good Curling and hope to see you at the Gores.
Chair, Ontario School Curling Championship Committee
