Sail Canada announces the formation of a 2020 Canadian Youth Development Squad

Sail Canada is proud to announce that the 2020 Canadian Youth Development Squad (CSYS) will be selected in 2019. The purpose of this initiative is to identify our top youth sailors in Canada and assess their current stage of development through high-level training and coaching opportunities to identify areas of improvement.

Sailors who successfully make the CSYS will be given the opportunity to attend the following event as part of the team:

1/ attend the 2020 Canadian sailing team camp (CST)
2/ attend a minimum of 2 CST/CSDS training camps in 2020 as determined by the national coaching team
3/ attend 2 European events including their relevant age-class World Championships

Sailors will be selected to the CSYS from the 2019 Canadian Youth Development Squad Trial Camp which will be held January 2-6 2020 at a location to be determined. There will be a qualification process to attend this camp.
