Alberta Athlete Development Program (AADP)
Through direct support and assistance by the Alberta Sport Connection, Athletics Alberta is able to assist Alberta’s top athletes with their future individual training and competition expenses by awarding funding based on individual accomplishments at the Provincial and National levels as well as those performances measured against Athletics Alberta standards.
The philosophy of the program is to fund the top athletes in the province. AADP is a stepping-stone to National Carding. It is hoped that athletes receiving this funding will participate in Athletics Alberta events, such as provincial championships and take part in Athletics Alberta programs, such as Canada Summer Games.
Appeals – Appeals will be accepted for the 2017 Athlete Funding Allocation until April 18th, 2018. Please CLICK HERE.
National Championships Funding
Through the financial assistance and support of the Alberta Sport Connection, Athletics Alberta is able to annually fund various levels of athletes to various Canadian competitions. Athletics Alberta has always maintained the need to have representation at the various championships. The policy will not apply to events in which Athletics Alberta specifically selects a team prior to the event and the team competes representing “Athletics Alberta”.This policy will outline how travel funds to athletes will be determined, and distributed, within the budget category, and the appropriate club category.
