2017/18 Squad Application Update

Wednesday 2 August, 2017

RYA UK Junior and Youth squad applications for winter 2017/18 are now open.  Please refer to the RYAs  ‘Latest News’ webpage here which provides the relevant link.

The applications will close midnight of the last indicator, which is specific per squad (details can be found in the Selection Policy, or on the Squad Application page).

Key closing dates for anyone interested in Topper squads are:

  • Midnight on Sunday 17th September 2017 for Topper Junior, Intermediate, ITCA (GBR) 4.2 and ITCA (GBR) 5.3 squads
  • Midnight on Saturday 7th October 2017  for Topper zone squad

Selection will take place immediately after these dates, so if you miss the deadline you will not be considered for a place in squads.

Any sailors applying for an RYA Youth Squad place must attend Physical Profiling and meet the minimum benchmark.  The RYA have a dedicated webpage for Profiling – click here  . Sign up is now open and the deadline is Friday 25th August 2017. 

Sailors applying for a Junior Squad place do not sign up for profiling.  Profiling takes place during squad training and full details will be provided nearer to the time.
