Over 50 years ago, this bonspiel was created to provide school-aged children with an exciting recreational activity during their winter break in February. Students in Grades 3 and 4 compete against each other on Wednesday while students in Grade 5 and 6 go head to head on Thursday.

For the two day bonspiel, the ice at the Kinplex is converted into 13 curling rinks. Attention is directed towards participation and fun. Every participant gets a ribbon – from First Place to Eighth Place in each pool.

Teams are made up of FOUR players and a designated adult supervisor (must have a minimum of three players to participate). Players do not have to be from the same school.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary in 2014, we added an OPEN category that allowed participants of ALL AGES to compete in Jam Pail curling. And it is now one of our most popular family activities!
