Ryerson University business student Alex Champ is a member of the Ryerson Rams men’s curling team, which he helped bring back to Ryerson. The team narrowly missed the playoff round in the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Championships. The program, which also includes a women’s team, is entering its second year.

In addition to being a student curling on the school team, Champ is also competing professionally this season with Team Retchless. At this level, Champ competes against some of Canada’s well known teams, including defending Olympic gold medalist Team Jacobs. While Champ will not be participating in some of the big-name events, he will be watching on TV.

As we enter the winter season, several curling events are on the horizon for Champ at the university and professional levels.
