Welcome to the Dumfries Junior Sweepers Club
Established in 2014 after the Sochi Winter Olympics to cater for the large intake of junior curlers between 6 - 12year olds.
The Dumfries Junior Sweepers was set up as a feeder club for the main junior club Dumfries Young Curlers.
This feeder club allows faster progress for the juniors and helps to keep a high retention rate within the junior section.
