2017-2018 Hit, Draw & Tap Championship
Hit, Draw and Tap is back for the 2017-2018 Season and it’s going to bigger and better!
This event has become so popular that it’s going nationwide this year with BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northern Ontario, Quebec joining in on the fun of Hit Draw and Tap! Curling Canada is helping us make it even bigger and better – club organizers will be thrilled with this year’s additions.
Hit, Draw and tap or “HDT” as we like to call it, is a youth skills competition where kids age 6-13 compete as individuals. HDT will group kids into three different age categories, and perform three different shots, a “Hit,” a “Draw” and a “Tap.” The difficulty of the skills are modified based on the age of the child.
All CurlON clubs in the province are encouraged to host an HDT competition at their convenience… last year some clubs ran it as a recruitment event during their OPEN HOUSE week, others built it into their Youth Curling Programs – practicing the skills as part of their regular programming, whatever works for your club is fine with us, as long as all club competitions are complete and results are received by January 7, 2018.
Participants will compete within their local club – and repeat each skill five times for a total score that will be compared against others in the province on a “Provincial Leaderboard” – the Top 10 curlers in each age group + ties will qualify for the Hit Draw and Tap Provincial Championship to be held in Huntsville on Saturday, February 3, 2018 as part of the 2018 Recharge with Milk Men’s Tankard.
Along the way participants will receive certificates, ribbons, medals, trophies, clothing and a chance to get their name on the biggest trophy you have ever seen!

A HOSTING KIT – consisting of three medals (first place), three 2nd and three 3rd place ribbons and participation certificates will be mailed to the address registered on the club registration.
New for 2017-2018 – and Web-based scoring tool will be available (early November) for clubs to enter their scores. The Web-based scoring tool will feed into a Provincial Leaderboard which will be posted at www.ontcurl.com.
