World Youth Climbing Championships date change

The IFSC recently announced that the World Youth Climbing Championships (WYCH) have been re-scheduled to September 20-24, 2014 in Noumea, New Caledonia. The ACC, the CEC, and the National Team coaching staff realize that this date change could have an adverse effect on the participation levels of Canadian athletes and officials. We have communicated our concerns to the IFSC by way of a formal letter, as have USA Climbing. We will provide more detailed information once the dates/venue are confirmed by the IFSC in early March 2014.
