The Southern California Youth Yacht Racing Association sponsors a program to recognize advanced junior sailors from Southern California who have shown tremendous dedication and accomplishment in youth sailing. Each year a select number of the top junior sailors from San Diego to Santa Barbara are chosen by a selection committee to become members of the annual SCYYRA Racing Team and are invited to participate in advanced sailing clinics and to be recognized in other ways. Selection of the 2025 SCYYRA Racing Team will be based on regatta results between September 1, 2023 to August 31, 2024, as well as age, ability, sportsmanship and geographic location.
All Southern California sailors that have placed well in Local, Regional, National and International regattas are encouraged to complete an application for consideration onto the SCYYRA Racing Team. The Selection Matrix is used to help select the elite team of sailors. The most competitive regattas that are sailed throughout the year are those that should be included on the application, as only the Top 5 regattas are considered when totaling points.
