Coaches must also register with the team athletes under the respective event in the Blue Sombrero online registration system as a “volunteer” to appear on the team roster. Coach event registration serves as a source of communication to others on the team, and allows team members also, the ability to monitor when team member registrations are completed (team member names appear on the team roster as their registration requirements are manually reviewed and appear to be complete). Teams may have only one designated coach and one other team official per game. Any change in the designated coach and/or team official must be noted on the line-up card provided to the Chief Umpire prior to the beginning of the game.  Coaches and team officials should register 30 days in advance of an event, as background checks are required (up to ten days to complete; international background checks typically require at least 30 days for completion).

Coaches are required for ALL U21 and under events (Junior & U18 National Championship teams).

Legal Guardian Consent Forms - in compliance with US Center for Safeport and USA Curling MAAPP Policy, legal Guardian Consent forms are required for all minor athletes giving consent to a supervising adult or coach when a legal parent or guardian is not present or accompanying a minor athlete. Consent forms are to be carried by all designated coaches and supervising adults.

(a) Regional Competition Advancement: Each region is responsible for determining its representatives to the U18 National Championship. Regions are encouraged to use the USCA format formula as described in Section II, but not required.
(b) Finals Format: The championship finals will be a split round-robin event, with two divisions of 6 teams each. Seeding will be determined by the USCA Junior National Championships Advisory Group (see Junior Championships section for definition).  The round robins may be set up in a way that allows marquee matches in prime viewing time, as long as the drawmaster determines that the round robin schedule remains fair in terms of time of play and sheet repetition. The top two teams from each division advance to semifinals (A1 v. B2, B1 v. A2). The semifinal winners play in the gold medal game, the semifinal losers play in the bronze medal game. When teams are tied for a play-off position, a maximum of one session of tie-breakers will be played to determine which team(s) advances to the play-offs. Team(s) can be eliminated, without playing an extra game, if more than one session of tie-breakers would be required.

2022 Mixed National Championships

2022 Mixed National Championship
Dates & Location TBD (as of 11/8/2021)

Overview: The USA CURLING Mixed National Championship is a regional-based, geographic championship aimed at determining our best mixed teams from the regions (and/or states). Teams move through the playdown process via the traditional regional championships. The winning team of the Mixed National Championship will advance to the Mixed World Championship.
 
Event Eligibility: All four players must be U.S. citizens as of the deadline date. Players must be paid members of a USA Curling member club. In addition to the USA CURLING membership requirements in Section II, teams registering must have at least two players who reside in the region where the team will playdown.
 
Playdown Process and Format: Ten teams will be selected as follows:
(i) One team is allotted from each of the following regions: AK, At-Large/CO/MACA, GLCA, GNCC, Midwest, MOPAC, MN, ND, WA, and WI. NOTE: Teams may be selected with alternative methods during the 2021 season due to COVID-19 restrictions. Selection is to be determined by region.
(ii) Fill Policy - In the event that one or more regions are unable to field a team, the vacant slot(s) will be filled beginning with the region with the most playdown entries, proceeding with other regions in order of entries. Ties will be broken using the previous season’s entries and, if needed, entries from the season prior to that. If there is still a tie, the berth reverts to the region placing highest in the most recent season's Mixed National Championship.
(iii) If a region fails to enter a team by the national entry deadline, that region will automatically lose its national berth. A region (and/or state) is not required to have more than one team registered in order to retain its slot at the Nationals.
(a) Regional Competition Advancement: Each region is responsible for determining its representatives to the Mixed National Championship. USA CURLING encourages the regions to use the USA CURLING format formula described in Section II.

EVENT DESCRIPTION and REGISTRATION DETAILS: The USCA Club National Championship is a club-based, geographic championship aimed at determining our top teams from the regions (and/or states). Teams move through the playdown process via the traditional state and regional championships. National Club Champions do not advance to world play. U.S. residency is required (see USCA Rules book-Residency definition.). In addition to the USCA membership requirements, all team members must be dues-paying, league-playing members of the same USA Curling Member club. All participant membership requirements will be verified as of Feb. 1st, 2022.

Coaches & Team Official –Must be at least 21 years of age. A coach must register with the USCA 15 business days (see U21 & under details below) in advance of the start of competition and complete the following requirements: (i) Provide his or her personal information and agree to the code of ethics (included in the online registration process). (ii) Complete a successful background screen by the National Center for Safety Initiatives at least 10 days prior to a respective event start date (information provided after registration). (iii) Read the SafeSport handbook (information provided after registration). (iv) Complete the SafeSport training modules (information provided after registration). Coaches must also register with the team athletes under the respective event in the Blue Sombrero online registration system as a “volunteer” to appear on the team roster. Coach event registration serves as a source of communication to others on the team, and allows team members also, the ability to monitor when team member registrations are completed (team member names appear on the team roster as their registration requirements are manually reviewed and appear to be complete). Teams may have only one designated coach and one other team official per game. Any change in the designated coach and/or team official must be noted on the line-up card provided to the Chief Umpire prior to the beginning of the game. Coaches and team officials should register 30 days in advance of an event, as background checks are required (up to ten days to complete; international background checks typically require at least 30 days for completion). Coaches are required for ALL U21 and under events (Junior & U18 National Championship teams).

In compliance with US Center for Safeport and USA Curling MAAPPPolicy, legal Guardian Consent forms are required for all minor athletes giving consent to a supervising adult or coach when a legal parent or guardian is not present or accompanying a minor athlete. Consent forms are to be carried by all designated coaches and supervising adults.
*Parents/guardians are responsible for registering minor participants for all USCA National Events.

USCA Refund/Withdrawal Policy: Teams (individuals) that withdraw from events they have registered to compete in will NOT receive a refund. Certain teams (individuals) may qualify for an exception under the following conditions:

1) Event was cancelled due to lack of entered teams (and team elects not to travel to a proximate region to compete).
2) Online registration “system” errors or over-payments.
3) Registered and unknowingly ineligible because a team member’s club is not a member of USA Curling.
4) Certain hardship exceptions (to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis).

Refund exceptions will be made for athletes who signed up for more than one USCA Championship qualifier and advance to USCA championship events with scheduling that prevents their attendance at the other USCA Championship event. The inability to get another day off from work or to find an alternate (fifth player) will not be considered a hardship and an exception will not be granted.

Refund requests for withdrawals must be provided in writing and can be sent to [email protected] or [email protected], or faxed to 715-344-2279. The written request must include complete contact information, specific event title and region (if applicable), and amount of the entry fee paid. All refunds granted will have online processing fees deducted. If you have any questions about the registration process, please email [email protected]
