Athletics Alberta Grants
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.
AADP Allocation 2020
2020 AADP was allocated at a 50% reduction to 2019 recipients that completed applications. Several athletes were added to the 2020 allocation based upon their indoor performances as ranked by the IAAF score. Championship funding was not allocated as Nationals did not take place in 2020.
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.
