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


CSAF Championship Bids

The Canadian Scottish Athletic Federation is now actively seeking Championship bid proposals from Games organizers for the 2020 CSAF Men's Open Championships, Women's Championships and Lightweight Championships. Questions and bid proposals can be submitted in confidence to CSAF President, Robert Young via email to robertlionelyoung@hotmail.com. All Championship bids will be reviewed for their eligibility and winners will be chosen after a review by the CSAF board. 

Thanks and happy training!
Robert Young
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.


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
