Athletics Canada regrets to inform that NACAC has cancelled the 2018 NACAC U18 Championships / Youth Olympic Games Trials slated for June 21-23 in Nicaragua.
Nicaragua is in a situation of political unrest with daily protests, marches and confrontations.
CONCACAF recently had to cancel the remainder of the Women’s U17 Championships staged in Nicaragua over safety concerns. The tournament was halfway through the group stage when the decision was made.
The national team unit is working on revised selection criteria for selection to the Youth Olympic Games team, we hope to have the criteria published shortly. It is expected that PASO will select the 10 athletes from Canada using our rankings system with performances up to and including June 24. We are awaiting further information from PASO and NACAC before being in a position to write an appropriate policy signed off by the National Team Committee.
