Canadian and Eastern coach leader assembled to put together rules for both projects. This information and more will be up on the USSAEast site later this Fall. Please share this with your club coaches.

J4 Can-Am event will include a skills assessment day
- The assessment is made up of three drills randomly chosen from a list of six. Our three eastern skills (pole plant, one ski and apex) and their three drills (picket fence, skating and speiss). But they will only see three at the event. The Canadians need to provide more detailed information on their three drills along with video which they have said they will get to us by the first of the year. The athletes will not know until the event which 3 drills have been chosen.
- This year the skills part of the Can-Am does not count towards qualification to any Eastern projects/events.
- There will be two evaluators for each skill station, 1 U.S. and 1 Canadian
- There will be one boy and one girl named as overall champion of the Can-Am and the same with the Am-Can based on a scoring system of 500 which is included in the Rules document.
