The Bowls Canada 2016 Junior and Under 25 Championships are set to begin at the North Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club in North Vancouver, British Columbia on Tuesday August 2nd.  The week long championship is sponsored by MVP Sports, a long-time contributor to advancing bowls in Canada.

The Junior competition will begin on Tuesday August 2nd and conclude with the medal rounds on Thursday August 4th.  Saturday August 6th marks the start of the Under 25 Championships with medal rounds scheduled for Monday August 8th.  The male and female winners of the 2016 Canadian Under 25 Championships will be nominated as a Canadian entry to the 2017 World Junior Championships hosted in Queensland, Australia. 

 

In addition to winning the Junior and Under 25 championships titles, the Youth Development Squad will be determined during these Championships.  The top four young men and women placing at the Under 25 Championships and the top four male and female Juniors placing at the Junior Championships will be named to the Youth Development Squad for a one-year term.  These athletes will be eligible for selection to national development events that may be run over the course of the year and may also be eligible for funding opportunities within their individual provinces.

Bowls Canada Boulingrin is excited to run a high performance camp specifically designed for these Junior and Under 25 athletes after the Junior medal rounds on Thursday August 4th. The camp will be co-run by BCB Performance Director Macky Singh and Asia Pacific Championships pairs gold medalist Steven Santana.  The camp will focus on teaching the strategies and skills required to achieve high performance success. The participants will have the opportunity to immediately apply their learnings in a modified mixed-triples competition at the end of the day. 

On Friday August 5th, the Forster Lang Pairs tournament will take place.  This is another great opportunity for these top level young athletes to play in a team envionment and apply the performance tactics introduced in the training camp.  Bowls Canada would like to thank long-time supporters Irene Forster and Henry Lang for their commitment and contribution to Junior Bowls in Canada.
