How does the waitlist work

Only applicants who receive a waitlist invitation via email are eligible for the waitlist.

Crew members on the waitlist are not rank ordered. If a space opens up on a crew, SCA will identify a candidate from the waitlist who meets the requirements for the open position. 

For example, if a 15-year-old girl drops out of a backcountry crew, SCA will use the waitlist to identify a 15-year-old girl who is able to serve in the backcountry.

Waitlist candidates can expect to be contacted by SCA by phone or email as late as July 31st

Candidates can request to be removed from the waitlist by contacting
