Youth National invitations are based on placement at OCF Provincials (in both difficulties). The OCF will send the top 8 athletes in each category, from Youth C to Junior. Byes will be awarded to last year’s National Champions, so the PSO will have one extra quota spot for these athletes. Foreign nationals, who are not permanent residents in Ontario and athletes applying for an injury exemption (i.e. missed their Provincial Championship), will apply directly to the CEC.
Invitations will be sent out after the Provincial Championships (in January) with instructions regarding how to accept the invitation and register for Nationals. Any remaining spots, after the first round of invitations are accepted, may be filled by the OCF, by inviting more athletes in the affected category.
