For the past 4 years, the Coupe Espoir Canada Carrossier ProColor has offered young swimmers the opportunity to achieve long-distance races with conditions similar to those of the International Swimming Federation (FINA). The purpose of this circuit is to encourage the emergence of a new generation of Canadians in open water for international competitions.

The competition, which is open to women and men aged 14 to 19, will start on Saturday, June 23 in Montreal (2 km) and will continue Monday, July 9 in Shawinigan (5 km).
