Overview - Athlete Development Funding

The second priority will be to assist in the training and development of individual athletes. For some sports this may mean assistance in novice training. Other sports that already hold ongoing development programs will be given assistance for advanced or elite development.


Applications must include one or more letters from a coach/mentor or Club Executive, as well as a letter from your provincial sport association verifying your membership.



Applicants may be eligible for up to two-thirds of the funds required; the individual/club is to provide remaining. Funding assistance to attend sports camps is not available from this fund; however, specialized or elite training camps may qualify.

Pursuit of Excellence encourages attendance at local clinics. There is also funding assistance available, up to a maximum of $1000.00 per year, for athletes selected to national or provincial teams.
