National Sail Training Centres
More training opportunities, more support staff
To be part of the National Sail Training Centres, athletes will first be invited to Regional Talent ID Camps, where they will be assessed. Following these camps, the Sail Canada High Performance Director, in consultation with national and provincial coaches, will select talented athletes and invite them to be part of the National Sail Training Centres. The National Training Centres will provide daily training sessions, regional training camps as well as support from performance science and sports medicine programs. Dedicated and specialized single and double handed coaches will work with these selected athletes. The coaches themselves will have ongoing professional development opportunities to ensure they have the latest coaching skills, technical knowledge and experience.
These integrated and clustered services will better allow young Canadian sailors to follow their Olympic dream in a world-class training development and support environment, without being constrained due to financial challenges.
