Team Selection Criteria for Junior Youth World Championships (JYWCH)

The updated sections of the National Team Program (NTP) specific to Junior Youth World Championships (JYWCH) can be found below.
This document takes precedence over the published NTP for the Youth and Junior Tours section. Note that the NTP will be updated early in January with these modifications.

While we are running this selection process, it is not yet confirmed if Biathlon Canada will offer this tour due to the COVID pandemic. An in-depth risk assessment will be conducted in the months and weeks leading up to departure. 

Selection Mechanism: Except for pre-selected athletes, all team selection decisions will be discretionary.
An online Expression of Interest form will be open for applications form January 10, 2021 to January 30, 2021. We will ask applicants to include all relevant results related to the JYWCH Discretionary Selection principles below. 

Biathlon Canada will host a webinar on JYWCH Team Selection on January 5, 2021 at 5pm MST. Please register for the webinar here, all are welcome (athletes, parents, coaches etc.).
