We are pleased to announce the 2017 National Youth Team for the Pan Am championships.
We have gone with four Combined athletes in every category except Junior Girls, where there were only two possible selections to make. We feel that as many athletes as possible should be experiencing this new format and we think this will be a great training opportunity leading in the 2018 YWCH here in Canada.
We have taken the top four athletes in each discipline just by going down the ranking. As you can see, there are many duplications between the Combined and individual discipline athletes. It was important to list the team in this way because if an athlete chose NOT to accept a spot in the Combined but they wanted to do an individual discipline, we needed to include them in the individual discipline list so they would get their earned spot. However, if an athlete does confirm they ARE doing Combined, we will remove their name from every individual discipline they are listed in and the next ranked athlete in those disciplines will be invited to join the team.
Athletes need to confirm their attendance with me. If an athlete doesn’t accept their place we will go down the ranking to fill all the spots available. When an athlete accepts their spot in Combined, we will take them out of the individual discipline listing and they will be replaced by the next ranked athlete.
Please contact me as soon as possible to confirm your spot or if you have further questions.
