The 2014 Canadian Junior National Racquetball Championships happened last week in Grande Prairie, Alberta. The Boy's and Girl's U18 champions repeated from 2013, as Coby Iwaasa won the Boy's title and Michele Morissette the Girl's title.

Iwaasa and Morissette also won their respective U18 doubles titles. Iwaasa won with Matthew Swaine and Morissette won with Danielle Drury.

The top two finishers in the singles divisions are named to the Canadian Junior National Team that will compete at Junior Worlds in Cali, Colombia in October. Six of the players on the 2014 team were on the 2013 team that competed in Sucre, Bolivia, including Iwaasa, Morissette and Drury.
