Attention all CNCR Coaches!
 
The Skater Development and Region Development Coordinators are looking for skaters who fit the criteria for the following:
 
1)      Region Talent Team (previously RST)

In order for skaters to be considered for these teams, we are requiring coaches to submit skater’s names though a nomination process which includes a short video submission. Please see the form below the criteria charts. In order to select skaters this year, we are using the criteria as a baseline, and will be specifically looking at age and strong skating skills.
 
All submissions will be reviewed by the Skater Development, Region Development and Section Coaches Representatives. Skaters selected to these teams will be notified by the Section and Region Skater Development Committees.
