US Sailing Development Team 2012

The 2012 US Sailing Development Team (USSDT) is comprised of two teams: the Youth Development Team and the Olympic Development Team.
2012USSDT_at COS

This is the youth pipeline team supported by US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC). The USSDT was created to help young athletes, who have been identified as future Olympic prospects, acquire the skills necessary to launch successful campaigns and compete at the Olympic level.

In addition to receiving elite-level coaching, guidance and mentoring, members benefit from joint training with 
US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider members and other top young sailors from across the United States.

The USSDT is comprised of talented, up-and-coming sailors, who were the top finishers at US Sailing's Youth Worlds Team qualifying events (Youth Worlds Team) and US Sailing's 2012 Rolex Miami OCR (Olympic Development Team).
