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.

Participants competed within their local clubs – and repeated each skill five times for a total score that was compared against others in the province on a “Provincial Leaderboard” – the Top 10 curlers in each age group + ties qualified for the Hit Draw and Tap Provincial Championship, which was held in Cobourg on February 4, 2017 as part of the Men’s Tankard/Women’s Scotties Provincial Championships.

The Kapuskasing club winners chose to submit their results via video, rather than travel to Cobourg.
