British Youth Sailing Squads 

Squads offer eligible young sailors an opportunity to develop skills at an appropriate stage through World Class coaching and support.  Find out more about the different squads by using the navigation on the left.

Squad Applications

Any sailors wishing to be considered for a Youth squad place must attend profiling.  Please visit our dedicated Youth Profiling page here which provides more information.  The dedicated page will also provide details of the sign up as and when this becomes available.

For Junior squad profiling, there is no sign up for this as this takes place once the squad are selected; profiling is part of the squad training for Junior.

Please ensure you read the Notice of Selection regarding eligibility, including the indicators that have been set for the squad.  You can access the Notice of Selection for the relevant level of the pathway by clicking the relevant to the left of this page under 'Information' and then opt for 'Selection'. 

Please note that double handed sailors must apply using the same application, providing helm and crew details under the one application.  Please do not submit separate applications for helm and crew for one boat.  If offered a place, this will be per sailor, therefore acceptance must be done per sailor regardless of being double handed or single handed.

Applicants are normally notified within 2 weeks of the final indicator via email.
