As with most youth sports, curling relies heavily on its volunteers. The CYCA knows that recognizing these incredible volunteers for the immeasurable time and effort that they put into the sport and game is extremely important. If you want to thank somebody in your curling community for being awesome, then please be sure to nominate them for one of the following awards.
Nominations for the 2021-2022 season are now closed. Look out for next year's nominations. https:// docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfozbbN2-8AJ4xrX4cn-wxDk8LnJRpe-vdXIcUKEkk8S2ShYA/viewform?usp=sf_link
