The Ski & Snowboard Australian XC Committee (SSAXC) is seeking expressions of interest from athletes to take part in an AUSXC Junior Development Tour to Canada this summer. The intention is to provide an opportunity for athletes aged approximately 15-17 (born 1999-2001) to gain international training experience in preparation for a step up to World Junior Championship level in the next 1-3 years.

The lead coach for the tour would be former Australian Team athlete and Level 1 coach Chris Darlington, who represented Australia at the World Championships in 2009 and 2011. Potential locations in Canada include Silver Star and Canmore in Canada, where there are good opportunities to work in with the local athletes and coaches.
