Island athletes headed to Junior World Cup

The Junior World Cup will take place in Potchefstroom, South Africa from December 5-16, 2021. Struchtrup and Sajko were a part of the Canadian side that won gold at the qualifying tournament earlier in the year, while islanders Anna Mollenhauer and Sara Goodman who helped Canada qualify are now too old for the Junior World Cup itself.
The trip and training are all completely self funded. You can show your support for the island athletes directly by donating online here:
