Athletics Alberta Athlete Support Funding

The 2015 Athlete Support Funding has been finalized please review the lists below and contact your club administrators for access to your funding.  If you have any questions please contact [email protected].  If you wish to appeal please review the policies and submit your appeal via the online form.  Appeals will be accepted until until April 13th, 2016.

Alberta Athlete Development Program (AADP)
Through direct support and assistance by the Alberta Sport Connections, 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.

National Championships Funding

Through the financial assistance and support of the Alberta Sport Connections, 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.
