Before heading to Singapore for the Youth Olympic Games, all young athletes will have to stop by somewhere closer to home first, for a series of trials to be fully qualified.

That said, the European athletes will be making a visit to the Land of the Tsars, as it’s just been announced that Moscow will be the host of the first ever European Youth Olympic Trials.

The European trials will be held from the 21 to 23 May, 2010.

For everyone else,

the African trials will begin late April next year,
the North American and South American trials will commence in May,
trials for Asian athletes will be held in Singapore, also in May,
and trials for Oceania will be held in March, in either of two cities in Australia, Brisbane or Sydney.
