High Performance Program

 

Climbing Escalade Canada’s High Performance Program (HPP) enhances athlete development and performance through support from CEC Coaching Staff, invitations to Training Camps and access to Canadian Sport System resources.  

The objective of the HPP is to increase the number of Canadian athletes achieving top 15 results at World Cup, World Championships and Olympic Games competitions.

CEC High Performance Program identifies athletes in Train to Compete, Learning to Win, and Winning for a Living stages of CEC’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework. The HPP is aligned with CEC’s high-performance strategies and funding partners, such as Sport Canada and Own the Podium (OTP).

 

HPP Framework

The following documents and corresponding program components work together to provide the framework for High Performance Program:

  1. The High Performance Program document outlines program eligibility, benefits and program entry criteria.
  2. The Continuous National Ranking (CNR) document describes how National Rankings are determined. More info and the rankings themselves can be found here.
  3. The Event Team Selections document details how athletes are selected for international competitions.

 

Annual Review and Amendments

CEC conducts an annual review of all HPP components to ensure fairness, accuracy and that each component continues to most effectively serve it’s purpose within the HPP. This review is performed in collaboration with HP staff, Athlete Commission, High Performance Committee and Sport System Advisors (OTP, SC, COC). The review results in amendments to each component.
