The Canadian Scottish Athletic Federation (CSAF) is chartered to preserve the traditional athletic heritage of Scottish culture through Highland Games in Canada in the form of the Heavy Events. We seek to respect the diversity of the Games in Canada, while providing support and opportunities for national unity through dialogue, education, and championships.

CSAF will support regional Heavy Events associations, athletes and individual Games by:

  • Maintains results of games across Canada
  • Message board for Heavy Events participants in Canada
  • Recording Canadian records and past champions
  • Recognizes the contributions of athletes in a “Hall of Fame”
  • Canadian Heavy Events Championships

Announcements

Inaugural CSAF Lightweight Championship

Congratulations to the Moncton Highland Games on being the Host of the Inaugural CSAF Lightweight Championship, taking place Saturday June 15th.

Athletes will be selected based upon those applying via email to robertlionelyoung@hotmail.com before April 10th. 8 athletes will be decided upon by the Selection Committee based upon 2018 performance. Because this is the 1st Championship for a relatively new class, the selection will not be done strictly from the 2018 Lightweight Rankings, as athletes may not have had the opportunity to compete in the Lightweight class at games in their region. The Selection Committee will look to ensure at least 1 athlete from each CSAF Region.

Thanks and happy training!

CSAF President

Scoring Policy Change

Please note the following policy changes to the database for the 2018 season.

Implement weights and measurements must be verified prior to competition and after any changes to the implement are complete. This includes, but is not limited to, cutting the caber, replacing hammer handles and changing links on the weights.

And

Caber weights must be based on actual measurements taken and represent the caber entered into the database, not field-side guesses as offered for the audience’s entertainment. This must be done with a calibrated scale and must be done at the competition site on the day of competition. Significant scrutiny will be applied to cabers thrown outside of Canada

Any questions can be forwarded to me. Thanks!

Rob Young,
CSAF President
