US Sailing announces Development Team for 2012

'Dean Brenner, Chairman OSC'    US Sailing Olympic Team
Fifty-two talented sailors have been named to the 2012 US Sailing Development Team (USSDT), the youth pipeline team supported by US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC). The USSDT was created in 2007 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.

'We are starting to see pay off from our increased emphasis on youth development in the Olympic classes,' said Dean Brenner (Wallingford, Conn.), Chairman, OSC.

'In the past few years the level of talent has noticeably increased in all classes targeted for the 2016 Games. With the new structure in place and increased resources, we plan to see our performance improve in all areas as we work toward future Olympic medals.'

'The US Sailing Development Team has had two very successful years of results. In 2010, we won three bronze medals at the ISAF Youth Worlds, our best performance in 18 years,' said Kenneth Andreasen (Tampa, Fla.), US Sailing’s High Performance Director/Head Coach. 'In 2011, we improved on that performance with three silver medals.'

For 2012, the USSDT will reflect the advancement of Olympic class sailing in the U.S. as it is now divided into two groups: the Olympic Development Team (ODT), focused on performance in Olympic Class equipment, and the Youth Development Team (YDT), focused on performance in the equipment used in the ISAF Youth World Championship.

In addition to receiving elite-level coaching, guidance and mentoring, members of the USSDT will benefit from joint training with US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics (USSTAG) athletes and other top young sailors from across the United States. The OSC support these athletes with shipping and logistical assistance and advice, as well as access to the OSC’s Performance Enhancement Team of physical therapists, trainers and nutritionists.
