Juniors are the future of curling and the RCCC aims to ensure that youths can access support and develop their skills to reach their optimum level.
There are currently over 1200 juniors benefitting from their RCCC affiliation and who are regularly participating in curling throughout Scotland.
The Skill Awards programme is a series of 6 progressive awards, each of which has a practical and a theoretical element designed to improve individual skills. The majority of junior clubs have now implemented the Skills Awards to their junior club programme.
