In late November an open tryout took place where just under 75 athletes from 6 Provinces came together with the Team Canada coaching staff. Simultaneously, we received just over 50 video submissions from across the country. Coaches have been pouring over their notes, reviewing vids and discussing and debating each and every athlete to form the following teams. These are the strongest, youngest and most well-rounded teams Canada has ever fielded. We have no doubt that they will make Canada proud.

  1. How old do you have to be to try out for your team and what level stunting is required.

    • The season the age requirement was 17 in 2014. And both teams will be competing in the Premier division (which is similar to Allstar Level 6).

  2. I know that flights are not included to Florida but will there be shuttles available to the hotel once the athletes arrive in Florida on the 21st?

    • The travel day for athletes is Saturday, April 22nd. There is currently no plan to pick up, or house athletes who travel this day unless there are extraordinary circumstances (such as no flights available from their locale). Athletes will be responsible for the costs associated with housing and transportation on the 22nd.

  3. When athletes go to live tryouts do they need to come with a stunt group or can they attend individually?

    • Hi Katie – You should ideally come with a group or partner. Last season 5 of 6 AG Premier groups were chosen together. It puts you at a huge advantage. If its impossible to find a group you will be put with the other Individuals.
