US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC) revealed the selection process for the 2014 U.S. Youth Worlds Team. To qualify for the 2014 U.S. Youth Worlds Team, sailors must compete and be scored in two qualification events.

The second event is one of three class-specific events:

'All the events involved in qualification, starting with next month's U.S. Youth Sailing Championships in Corpus Christi, Texas, are high-quality U.S. events.'
