The Youth Olympic games (YOG) were created in 2007 by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as a new elite sporting competition for young people with both summer and winter editions.
These exciting new events offer a unique opportunity to showcase the sporting superstars of tomorrow and reach out to young people – both in the host country and around the world.
As a major global event that brings the youth of the world together, the YOG offer a unique opportunity to inspire young people to participate in sport and adopt and live by the Olympic values.
Skate Canada supports Youth Olympic Games as an excellent development opportunity for some of its NextGen athletes.
