Swimming Canada announces year of birth eligibility for Canada Games

Canada Games

Swimming Canada has been advised by Canada Games Council that our application to amend the age eligibility for the 2017 Canada Games has been approved.  In response to Sport Canada’s request to align Canada Games with LTAD stage appropriate development, and to better consider the step-wise progression necessary for swimmers progressing along the National Team development continuum, Swimming Canada has determined the Year of Birth eligibility for Canada Games will be 2001 for Male and 2002 for Female able body participants. There is no change to Para-swimming and Special Olympic age eligibility.
