Continuing its ongoing partnership with the Canadian Curling Association, Mondetta Clothing has provided the official uniforms for all 16 teams competing at the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials, presented by Monsanto, taking place in the city.

The uniforms, consisting of a jersey and a jacket, are a departure from previous programs in that this year’s have been constructed using sublimation print fabrics offering the best in performance technology and are infused with technical capabilities such as four-way stretch, moisture wicking, breathability and quick-drying properties. The fit for both have been articulated to suit curlers specifically and the range of movement characteristic to the sport, allowing for comfort and a full range of motion. The jacket has silicone grip elastics in the hem while the jersey has been updated with abrasion resistant seaming both of which will further enhance comfort and provide a technical edge on the ice.

Because the eight men’s and eight women’s teams at the tournament are vying to represent the nation at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and not provincially tethered, previous colour schemes have been dispatched in favour of an updated palette reflecting prevalent fashion colour trends. Using a two-toned shadow pattern, darker hues have been paired with lighter ones, resulting in a complete series of uniforms that, using sublimation printing, are much more fashion forward and dramatically stylish than anything previously seen on the national curling scene.

“We’re thrilled with the response to the uniforms for the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, presented by Monsanto,” said Canadian Curling Association Chief Executive Officer Greg Stremlaw. “The design and colours are eye-catching, to say the least, and we’re excited to see what Mondetta has in store for the teams that will represent Canada in Sochi.”

The response from the players themselves has been equally effusive:

“Being a competitor in this Olympic qualifying event is an honour and a privilege. This is the pinnacle of Canadian curling, and Mondetta should be equally proud of the apparel they supplied to the competitors.  As an athlete, the on-ice uniforms could not be better suited to the needs of the players.  The fabric and fit is so comfortable under the hot arena lights.  And just as importantly, they look fantastic!  This is a uniform truly fitting of the pursuit of Olympic glory.  Bravo Mondetta!” – Jon Mead, Third for Team Stoughton

“Mondetta has really done a great job. I just really like the way the jackets fit, the thumb holes are fun, the pockets are great and they’re cosy. We love the collars on the shirt. They’re not the typical golf shirt collar. They’re a little more modern and trendy which is matched by the funky colours.” – Rona Pasika, Lead for Team Sonnenberg

“I am a fan. I think they are fantastic. I like how they’ve incorporated the maple leaf into the uniform, in various colours, and think they look really sharp.” – Rick Sawatsky, Lead for Team Morris

The Roar of the Rings uniforms are a precursor to the soon-to-be-launched Team Canada apparel for both the men’s and women’s teams taking part in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics in early 2014 .

  1. The clothing is outstanding, makes me proud to be Canadian, would love to purchase some for my family before the Olympics, any chance of this.

    • Hi Brian,
      Unfortunately, due to our agreement with the Canadian Curling Association, we’re unable to offer these to the general public for purchase. They were solely created for the the players taking place at the Olympic pre-trials taking place in Winnipeg.
      There’s a small possibility a small selection will be on sale following the Brier in February but at this point, it’s too early to tell.
      Sorry to disappoint.
      Warmly,
      The Mondetta Web Team

  2. I echo Brian Cleaver’s comments. Are these curling jerseys available to purchase?

  3. To Whom It May Concern:
    I am also interested in Purchasing a jacket and jersey if possible in Kevin Martin’s colors or whatever combination available. I live in rhode Island; hope that is not a problem.
    Thank You

  4. Its too bad that Mondetta and the Canadian Curling Association cannot sell the apparel designed for our mens and women’s curling teams to the general public. As an avid curler myself, I would love to purchase one of these jerseys myself not only to support Canada’s curlers, but support Canada as a whole as well. If Mondetta and the CCA were to sell these jerseys to the public, it would for sure be a big sell with the public and curling fans across Canada and it would for sure raise a lot of money for Mondetta, the CCA, and the athletes curling at the level that they do and provide them with funding to continue their development to continue to compete at the level that they do and allow the curlers to continue to devote the time that they do to curling at a high level.

    • We’re delighted to announce the jerseys are now available for purchase at Eventmax.

  5. It’s too bad the CCA has not woke up to the revenue potential this could bring them. I would love to get a Canada Olympic jersey like the ones worn by team Jones. Hopefully they will see that selling the jerseys would be popular among the fans.

    • We’re delighted to announce the jerseys are now available for purchase at Eventmax.

  6. I agree with the comments of everyone else. I think the CCA could use this opportunity to market a limited number of these shirts and jerseys. Even if they were to eliminate the olympic logo it is a great design.

    • We’re delighted to announce the jerseys are now available for purchase at Eventmax.

  7. I can’t help feeling that this is a rather short sighted decision by the CCA and hope that they will reconsider, given that the Olympics have concluded. Revenue generating considerations aside (and they would undoubtably be substantial) the sale of these jerseys would prove a very tangible way in which to publically support and lend greater profile to the sport as well as give tribute to our Canadian Olympic Champion Curlers! As a patriot and proud supporter of our Olympic Team, this would have been a nice way to recognize the widespread support and reward your fan base, much like our Olympic Hockey Teams have done by marketing their jerseys! Mark me down for an order, should the CCA ever reconsider their decision.

    • We’re delighted to announce the jerseys are now available for purchase at Eventmax.
