CEC is currently undergoing a complete independent review of its High Performance Program, and the recommendations from the consultant are expected to be delivered to CEC by January 15, 2024.
Due to the timing of this review, the High Performance Committee recommends a status quo in the selection process for the 2024 Season. This means that the current HPP, CNR, and Team Selection Policy will be utilized for 2024 selections. Note that only the single-discipline CNR will be used in 2024, not the Combined CNR.
The High Performance Committee also recommends that CEC utilize all quotas available to Canada, throughout the 2024 IFSC season. All quotas will therefore be offered in priority order to athletes within the High Performance Program.
Taking into consideration the aforementioned, the High Performance Committee reserves the right to make small adjustments to the selection process following the recommendations from the independent consultant. Should there be any adjustments, they will be clearly communicated, along with an implementation timeline, and will not affect the selection process retroactively, but rather moving forward from the date of the change.
More significant changes to the selection process, based on the recommendations from the consultant, will be implemented for the 2025 World Cup Season.
More information regarding High Performance Competitions, as well as the 2024 North American Cup Series, will be communicated by the end of 2023.
For questions or concerns, please contact the Chair of the High Performance Committee, Melanie Marier, at firstname.lastname@example.org Alternatively, athletes can also reach out to their Athletes’ Commission co-chairs: Babette Roy and Michael Finn-Henry at email@example.com
