Shawn Adams (born April 4, 1974 in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia) is a Canadian curler originally from Upper Tantallon, Nova Scotia.

Career[edit]

Adams rose to curling prominence being runner-up in the 1992 Canadian Junior Championship, and then the next year, won the 1993 Canadian Junior Championship, however he was stripped of the championship because of alcohol violations1 after the victory.

7 years later Adams came back to the scene winning the Nova Scotia championships for the right to go to the 2000 Labatt Brier, where he finished 3-8. Two years later, at the 2002 Nokia Brier he improved on that record with a 6-5 record. Finally, at the 2005 Tim Hortons Brier, Adams would finish the round-robin with an 8-3 record earning him a berth in the playoffs. In the playoffs, Adams defeated Quebec's Jean-Michel Menard in the 3-4 game, then he defeated Manitoba's Randy Dutiaume in the semi-final before losing to Randy Ferbey and Alberta in the final. Adams won his final Nova Scotia championship in 2011, and went 5-6 at the 2011 Tim Hortons Brier.

In 2011, Adams moved to Newfoundland and Labrador. In 2013, he played in his first provincial championship in the province.
