Team Bio

Team Muyres is a new squad this season featuring two sets of brothers. Kirk and Dallan Muyres grew up in St. Gregor, Sask., and curling played a central part in the family unit with their father and uncles representing Saskatchewan at the 1986 Brier.

Kirk Muyres rose up the ranks as a third playing for Saskatchewan at the 2007 Canada Winter Games with skip Josh Heidt and the 2011 Canadian junior curling championships with skip Braeden Moskowy. They posted a perfect 13-0 record at the 2011 Canadian juniors to capture the title. Muyres represented Canada at the 2011 world junior curling championships and finished in fourth place.

Kirk joined his brother Dallan on Steve Laycock’s team in 2012. They were regulars on the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling circuit with their best result of a runner-up finish, falling to Team Brad Gushue, at the 2014 Canadian Open on home-province ice in Yorkton, Sask. Team Laycock avenged the defeat with a win over Team Gushue for bronze at the 2015 Brier.

The Marsh twins previously played with skips Bruce Korte and Colton Flasch. Team Laycock defeated Team Flasch in last year’s Saskatchewan men’s provincial championship final.

Although this is Kirk Muyres’s first season skipping at the men’s level, he’s left quite the impression already leading the team to the Tour Challenge Tier 2 title and rising to the elite ranks of the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling.

Kirk Muyres has also played mixed doubles with Laura Walker winning the Canadian title and world bronze medal in 2018. They also won the inaugural Curling World Cup mixed doubles event in September 2018 in China.
