2020 Youth & Open Lead/Speed National Team Selection Camp

2020 Youth & Open Lead/Speed National Team Selection Camp

Athlete Information

Dates: June 4 – 7, 2020
Location: Richmond Oval – Richmond, BC
Categories: Youth B, A, Junior & Open Athletes – Male & Female
Estimated Athlete Fees (subject to change):
Athletes will be responsible for paying a team fee in advance of the start of the selection camp. These fees will cover the costs of the facility use, accommodations, expenses for setters and team officials, etc.
● Selection Camp Fee: $400.00/athlete
● Accommodation Fee for three nights: $120.00 – 180.00/athlete
● Travel Costs: the CEC will employ a cost-sharing system in which the total travel costs will be shared equally amongst all participants. Details will be announced in the coming months.

Accommodations:
All athletes will be required to stay at the University of British Columbia Student Residences. At this time, we are booked into their dormitory that will have two athletes in one room together. Shared common washrooms will be available on each floor and there are no kitchen facilities in any of the rooms. A common lounge will have a fridge and microwave available for all to use.
It is the hope that we will instead move to a building that has apartments. This will not be determined until March 2020. If this is the case, each athlete will share a 6-bedroom apartment that will have their own washroom and kitchen in each apartment.
Athletes will be placed in a room according to gender and age category. Team officials will be responsible for all youth athletes during their stay, including those that are also competing as
open athletes. Additional chaperones may be provided for the Youth B athletes attending this camp, at an additional cost to these athletes.
All room bookings will be organized and paid for by the event organizer; athletes will be billed for their accommodation costs and other team fees, which all must be paid in advance of their arrival to the selection camp.

Arrival and Departure Dates for Athletes:
All athletes are expected to arrive at the team accommodations by 7:00pm on June 4, 2020; the selection camp will finish no later than 3:00pm on June 7, 2020 to accommodate travel schedules.
