Hit, Draw & Tap Championship

2019-2020 Curling Canada’s Hit Draw Tap Championship

Presented by:  CurlON

Hit, Draw and Tap is back for the 2019-2020 Season and it’s going to bigger and better!

Hit Draw 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.

In 2019-2020 Ontario’s youth will have MORE WAYS TO PLAY!  For 2019-2020 season only – CurlON is presenting the 2020-Ontario Hit Draw Tap Tour Championship.  These additional competitive opportunities are being provided as Ontario is playing host to two major championships – the Continental Cup (London) and the Tim Horton’s Brier (Kingston).

Winners of the 2020-Ontario Hit Draw Tap Tour Championship will be declared at the Tim Horton’s Brier on March 8, 2020 at the Leon’s Centre in Kingston, ON.

Hit Draw Tap Club Championship (Club to Provincial)

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 6, 2020 at 9:00 am.
