Overview - Coaching Development Funding

Coaching education, particularly locally through clinics, conferences, and symposiums is first priority with the Committee.



Applicants may be eligible for up to two-thirds of the funds required; the individual/club is to provide remaining.

Coaches who are being paid may be eligible for up to one-third of the funds required. Coaches accepting honorariums are not considered to be paid coaches. Continuing contribution to amateur sport in Grande Prairie will also be a factor in approving funding.
