First selections and preselections

The Canadian Association of Harness Dog Sports is honored to announce the top 3 selections and preselected athletes approved by the CAHDS selection committee to represent Canada at the 2017 International Federation of Sleddog Sports World Championships in Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve Ltd, Ontario.


All selected applicants will be receiving an email confirming there selection.

If you are not on the list:

If you are not on this list you may still be getting your participation approved at a later date. We will be announcing more selections when we get confirmation of extra participant allowance and/or as current selected athletes withdraw.

As host country Canada will be entitled to fill additional spots but we can not announce any more team members at this time. Unfortunately we need to hear from other countries before we can be allocated more participation, so there will be a delay in finalizing the team.

Applicants that are not on the list of pre selected or top 3 ranked are currently still on the list of potential participants in there ranking order (as ranked by selection committee). All applicants will be personally emailed  with details.
New selections will be announced as any of the two following happens:

  1. Currently selected athletes withdraw from participating or fail to confirm within deadline
  2. Canada gets allocated opportunity for more participants

Keep training and be optimistic about being part of the team and that it may be as late as December that we can confirm with them.
