After winning the first ever Olympic gold medal for the United States in 2018, John Shuster has been committed to #growthegame and dreamt up the 5 and Under National Championship. Inspired by the great events put on by regions, clubs, and the USWCA all across the country, he wanted to bring together the best and most enthusiastic curlers from across the country and invite them to compete at the club that fostered his Olympic dream and help them in their own curling journey.
John teamed up with USA Curling, the US Women's Curling Association (USWCA), and the Duluth Curling Club to put on the inaugural event in 2019. Wausua Curling Club hosted in 2020. Stay tuned for updates on the next event.
