SSO is excited to announce our improved, innovative, and comprehensive 2019 Canada Games Team Plan, which will encompass this summer’s Provincial Team programming. 
 
After review of the 2015 Canada Games Team program and results, and in alignment with the development of the 2017-2020 SSO High Performance Plan, it was determined that a new development program, training plan, and selection process was required. It was decided that Ontario should implement a 2-year training and team development plan that monitors a larger pool of athletes in Year 1 (2017-18) and selects the final team earlier in Year 2 (2018-19).
 
A more detailed explanation of the above information, including Canada Games Teams FAQs, can be found in the posted “2019 Canada Games Team Plan” document.

Only the Junior (16-18) & 13-15 Teams will fall under the 2019 Canada Games Team Training Pool, in alignment with the 2019 Canada Winter Games age eligibility.
 
The new Junior (16-18) Team Selection Criteria has now been posted online on the High Performance page. Junior Provincial Team Trials Phase I will take place at the Hilton Invitational.
 
Any 16-18/FINA Junior Athletes interested in attending the first Phase of Provincial Team Trials at Hilton should register on E-Reg by Wednesday March 15th.
