Jocelyn Peterman

Junior career

Peterman and her team of Brittany Tran, Becca Konschuh and Kristine Anderson won a silver medal skipping Alberta at the 2011 Canada Winter Games, losing to British Columbia's Corryn Brown in the final. The next season, the team represented Alberta at the 2012 Canadian Junior Curling Championships. They won the event, defeating Manitoba's Shannon Birchard rink in the national final. This qualified the team to represent Canada at the 2012 World Junior Curling Championships. After posting a 6-3 round robin record, the team lost to Russia's Anna Sidorova in a tie-breaker match, thus failing to make the playoffs. In 2013, her rink failed to even make the Canadian Juniors, having not even made the playoffs in the Alberta playdowns.[4] In 2014, her last year of junior eligibility, Peterman's team lost in the Alberta junior final to Kelsey Rocque, who would go on to win that year's World Junior championships.

During her junior career, the Peterman team entered a number of World Curling Tour, including the Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic twice, which was a Grand Slam event at the time. She would win just one match at the 2012 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic and was winless at the 2013 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic.

Women's career

After juniors, Peterman joined the Heather Nedohin team in 2014 as their alternate, later becoming their second.[5] On the World Curling Tour that season, the team entered four slams, making the playoffs in three. Their best result was a semi-final finish at the Canadian Open. They also played in the 2014 Canada Cup of Curling, finishing in third place. The team played in the 2015 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts, the first provincial championship appearance for Peterman. There, the rink made it to the semi-final, where they lost to Chelsea Carey.

Nedohin retired from curling in 2015, and Chelsea Carey would take over the team as skip, with Peterman becoming the full-time second, replacing Jessica Mair.[6] The team would fail to qualify for either Slam they entered that season. They did however win the 2016 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts, defeating Edmonton's Val Sweeting in the final. The win sent Peterman to her first ever national women's championship, the 2016 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. At this event, her team of Carey, Amy Nixon, Laine Peters, alternate Susan O'Connor and coach Charley Thomas went 9-2 in the round robin, clinching the first place seed in the playoffs. The team defeated Jennifer Jones of Team Canada in the 1-vs-2 game and then Northern Ontario's Krista McCarville in the final. Peterman represented Canada at the 2016 Ford World Women's Curling Championship, in Swift Current, where the team went on to finish in fourth place.

Early in the 2016-17 curling season, the Carey rink played in the 2016 Canada Cup of Curling, finished with a 2-4 record. Later in the year, the Carey rink represented Team Canada (as defending champions) at the 2017 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, where they won a bronze medal.

Team Carey had a strong run at the 2017 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials, going undefeated until losing to the Rachel Homan rink in the final. The team continued on this roll into the new year, winning the 2018 Meridian Canadian Open. Their success stopped at the 2018 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts, with the team losing both of their playoff games. They had a second chance at making that year's Scotties Tournament of Hearts, where they played Kerri Einarson in a wild card game, but they would lose that event too. After the season, Peterman left the team, moving to Winnipeg to play for Jennifer Jones, replacing the retiring Jill Officer.

In her first season as a member of Team Jones, the team won the 2018 Canada Cup and the 2019 TSN All-Star Curling Skins Game, but failed to win any Grand Slam events. As Jones had won the 2018 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, the team represented Team Canada at the 2019 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. There the team failed to make the playoffs, finishing with a 6-5 record.

In their first event of the 2019-20 season, Team Jones won the 2019 AMJ Campbell Shorty Jenkins Classic, defeating Tracy Fleury in the final. Next they played in the 2019 Colonial Square Ladies Classic where Fleury would take them out in the semi-finals. They had two quarterfinal finishes at the first two Slams of the season, the Masters and the Tour Challenge. At the Canada Cup, the team struggled, finishing with a 2-4 record.

Mixed doubles

In April, 2016 Peterman and teammate Brett Gallant won the 2016 Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Trials after battling to a 12-8 win over Laura Crocker and Geoff Walker at the Nutana Curling Club in Saskatoon, Sask. The new champions were playing in their first Mixed Doubles event together.[7] The pair played in the 2018 Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Olympic Trials, going undefeated in group play, but lost to the eventual champion John Morris / Kaitlyn Lawes pairing in the semifinal. Peterman and Gallant also won the 2019 Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, defeating Nancy Martin and Tyrel Griffith in the final. The pair represented Canada at the 2019 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, where they won the silver medal, after losing 6-5 to Sweden's Anna Hasselborg and Oskar Eriksson on the last rock.[8]

On the World Curling Tour, Gallant and Peterman have won the 2018 Battleford Mixed Doubles Fall Curling Classic, and the 2019 China Open.[9]
