Visit CURLSASK to register for the 2022 Viterra Scotties.
The qualification process for the 12-team Viterra Scotties Provincial Championship is as follows:
Note: All teams wishing to enter the Viterra Scotties Provincial Championships must register for playdowns by December 6, 2021 @ 12pm. Teams must adhere to the Residency Eligibility Rules by Curling Canada to collect provincial qualifying SaskCTRS and CTRS points as outlined here. All point totals are derived from Curling Canada’s CTRS list.
Eight teams will pre-qualify based on merit-based play. Four teams will qualify through a Last Chance Event. The points cutoff for merit-based play is December 6, 2021.
1. Teams one-four come from the top four teams on the SaskCTRS leaderboard. This includes all CTRS points earned at SaskTour and WCT events that take place within Saskatchewan. (Note: Lloydminster Curling Club is affiliated with Alberta; events in Lloydminster do not qualify.)
2. Teams five-eight will qualify from Curling Canada’s CTRS list. The four highest Saskatchewan teams not previously qualified through the first process will receive an invite to provincials.
3. Teams nine-twelve will qualify through the Viterra Last Chance Event December 16-19, 2021 held at the Highland Curling Club. This will be a triple-knockout event.
These twelve teams will compete in Assiniboia, January 5-9, 2022 in a self-seeded Triple Knockout event with a four-team page-playoff. The winner will represent Saskatchewan at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts January 28 – February 6, 2022 in Thunder Bay, ON.
- 25 minutes prior to the start of each game, the two competing teams will flip a coin. The winner of the coin toss will select either rock, colour or practice (first or second).
- First practice will take place 20 minutes prior to game time. The first team to practise will be able to determine the rotation for the LSD, and the second team to practise will need to throw the other rotation for the LSD. Any player may throw the LSD and may throw all LSD’s if desired.
-During the practice, each player will be able to throw two rocks up and two rocks back. Once each player of the first practice has thrown two rocks up and two rocks back, they will take one rock back and use that rock to draw to the button. The third will use a tape measure to determine the distance of the rock from the button and both opposing thirds must agree on the positioning prior to moving the rock.
- Immediately following the first practice, the team with second practice will throw two rocks up and two rocks back (per player). The second practice team will then take one rock to the other end to throw their draw to the button. Again both thirds must be present and agree on which rock was closer. The third will use a tape measure to determine the distance of the rock from the button and both opposing thirds must agree on the positioning prior to moving the rock.
- The team that has recorded the shortest distance to the pin will win the hammer in the first end.
- Should a team cover the pin when drawing for hammer or fail to hit the rings, another player on that team will re-throw once confirmation is received from the opposing team. If both teams cover the pin twice (or fail to hit the house twice), a coin toss will be used to determine last rock.
- Non-practising team is to wait inside the lobby. Infraction is loss of hammer.
MODIFIED DRAW EVENT: the team that qualifies from the A Event will have choice of rock colour or hammer. If a team that qualifies out of the B event plays someone from the C event, the B event winners will have first choice of rock colour or hammer. The team who has the hammer will have the first practice. In the event that the two teams qualified out of the same event (A, B or C), they will perform the coin toss to determine practice and rock colour, and perform the LSD for hammer.
ROUND ROBIN EVENT: the top 8 records will advance to playoffs. In the event that tiebreakers are required to determine the top 8, only one round of tie-breakers will be played. Teams will be ranked based on the cumulative LSD from the 3 round robin games (first throw). If more than one tiebreaker is needed, teams may be eliminated based on cumulative LSD. In the unlikely event that LSDs are identical, highest cumulative points for, followed by lowest cumulative points against will act as tiebreakers. In playoffs, the team with the better record will have choice of rock colour or hammer. In the event that both teams have the same record, they will perform a coin toss to determine practice and rock colour and throw an LSD for hammer.
The 2022-2023 Tour Dates have now been updated and registrations open on Aug. 15, 2022.
