CBF Junior program

Now that we moved past the worst of COVID and with the 2023 Junior World Championships on the horizon in August of 2023 we are working on our Junior program. 
The first step is to identify players who are interested in participating in our Junior program and taking part in mentoring programs and practice sessions.
We will coordinate online practice sessions, try to find partners for those who need them and introduce them to various programs within the CBF that may be of benefit to them. There are several groups, ranging from under 16 to under 31 years old.
If you are interested in the program, please send an email to juniors@cbf.ca with the required details.
