You can prepare for the season by purchasing your 2023-2024 Athlete License today! Despite the inflation and increase cost of running events, the Board of Directors has approved a status quo in the cost of the license. Youth B, Youth A, Junior and Senior License is available at $150.
Again this year, we will offer a Youth C one-time license for Youth Boulder Regionals. This license is set at $85 and provide access to the regional events.
Licenses are valid from September 1 to August 31. They can be purchased on the CEC Membership Site.
Coach’ licenses are also available for purchase at the same rate of the previous season – $70. Buy yours today.
To attend any of the CEC Events listed above, as well as High Performance Competitions and Training Camps, coaches must complete Safe Sport Requirements. Please ensure you are up to date with the 2023-2024 Requirements – please note the addition of the Making Ethical Decision Training.
We also want to make your life easier this year! Coaches must register only ONCE to the CEC Master Coach List. Once registered and screened, coaches will have access to all the above listed events, without needing to register each time. The form will remain open until the end of the last event of the season – just make sure you put your name on the list prior to the start of the event you wish to coach at.
