The Fort Wayne Curling Club in Indiana will host the 2022 USA Curling Under-18 national championships starting March 31 with both boys and girls teams competing.
The Fort Wayne Curling Club was re-established in 2010 at an arena, garnering interest in learn-to-curl events and four-end games before moving to a dedicated facility in 2014. In 2019, the Fort Wayne Curling Club moved to another dedicated facility that now boasts four sheets and a vast experience of hosting events. Introduced to USA Curling in 2017, the U18 National Championships are a regional-based, geographic championship.
“Hosting events like this are hugely important to the sport’s pipeline in the United States,” said USA Curling Chief Executive Officer Jeff Plush. “Any chance we can partner with a member club to provide additional pathways for grassroots or up-and-coming curlers is a tremendous opportunity for all parties involved.”
