To all Competitive Curlers and administrators
NZ Curling is looking for self-nominations for
- Selection for NZ Teams
- Team Coaches
- Selectors and Scouts
The NZCA Executive encourages athletes to self-nominate to be considered for selection for several international events through the 2022-2023 Curling Season. Secondary School Teachers, please pass on this information to any students interested. The Junior (U21) self-nomination may be of particular interest to some. Covid19 has generated much uncertainty around our domestic and international seasons during 2021. However, with restrictions lifting, we can now support NZ representative ;teams to travel overseas.
Click here to self-nominate. The deadline for self-nomination is Friday 15th April.
Specifically, the events where teams will be selected are
- Women and Men – Pan Continental Championships, OQE, and World Championships if successful.
- Junior Women and Men (U21s), – Junior Bs (Dec/Jan) and Junior As (early 2023) if successful.
- Mixed – date and venue to be confirmed. Medalists in this NZ Mixed Championship will have first refusal at putting a team together.
The NZ Selection Policy and Processes and National Coaching Structure have been reviewed and revised. Click here to see these and other updated documents in the Athlete Portal.

Selectors and Scouts
The NZCA is also looking for Scouts which are people in each area (Auckland, Dunedin, Alexandra, and Naseby) to assist with ensuring selectors are aware of potential athletes for particular teams, more so for the Junior Men’s, Women’s, and YOGs teams. If you are interested in being a scout for NZ Curling, please email the NZCA Secretary with your expression of interest
The deadline for self-nomination is Friday 15th April 2022.
To support the Selectors to make decisions to enter New Zealand into any events and to ensure you are emailed the correct information, everyone who is potentially interested must complete the self-nomination process by the deadline. If you do not self-nominate, you will not be considered for selection and will not receive the necessary& information.
