    Youth Selection

    Here you can find out how to get selected for the RYA UK Youth Squads including selection policies for the squads and other important Youth events.

    Youth winter squads 2019/20 applications are now open. Please click here to apply.  All sailors wishing to be considered for a squad, regardless if in the current squad will need to apply. For the summer teams, all Youth squads will be reviewed following the Youth Nationals, but only non-squad sailors will need to apply, so that means if you are already in a squad and wish to remain, you do not apply!  But if you are in a RYA squad and wish to be considered for a different squad, you will need to apply for that squad!

    Please ensure you read the BYS Notice of Selection policy (link below) to check the eligibility and to check which indicators you should be competing at!  Please also check the Profiling page here.  Applicants will usually be notified within 2 weeks of the final indicator via email.

    For more information on the changes to the RYA RS:X UK Youth Squad please click here.

    For details of the international events the RYA are supporting, this can be found via the BYS Notice of Selection policy (see below) or our 'International Events' webpage here.
