Youth Olympic Games - Date Change


Mar. 11, 2019

 

The Youth Olympic Games (YOG) dates have changed. The new dates are January 9 - 22, 2020 in Switzerland. Because the dates for the U21 New Holland Junior Championships are January 18-26, 2020, any athletes selected to compete for Canada at the Youth Olympic Games next year will not be able to participate in the U21 Junior Nationals. The YOG dates do not conflict with any U18 events so YOG athletes can participate in any U18 competitions next season. 
 
The Team Canada players will be selected from the pool of players (meeting the age criteria) from the 2019 Canada Winter Games and the upcoming 2019 U18 National Championships (April 2-7th). All athletes who apply, meet the age criteria and have/are competing in the 2019 Canada Winter Games and/or the 2019 Canadian U18’s will be given equal consideration. The deadline for application from athletes who competed at the Canada Winter Games was February 1st, 2019 is now closed. The deadline for submission of application for athletes competing in the U18 National Championships is 4:00 p.m. (EST) Friday, March 22nd, 2019.
