    • CCC awards AltaGas Club Coaching Support Program grants to three new clubs for next 3 years

      October 7, 2015

      The AltaGas Club Coaching Support Program (“ACCSP”) is a CCC initiative aimed at supporting Canada’s high performance clubs and coaches by optimizing High Performance coaches’ ongoing practical education and training. The financial support aims at improving the outlook for more full-time professional club coaching positions in Canada and consequently at increasing the number of Canadian clubs delivering year round, full-service programs. 
      The ACCSP selection committee has selected the following three clubs to benefit from 3 year support program:

      •    Caledonia Nordic Ski Club (Prince George, BC)
      •    Golden Nordic Ski Club (Golden, BC)
      •    Avalon Nordic Ski Club (St John, NL)

      The ACCSP will support these clubs for a period of 3 years (ending August 2018), provided that clubs meet the expectations specified in the related agreement on a yearly basis in regard to meeting deliverables and demonstrating progress towards achieving the clubs’ goals.

      The financial support over the three year term will be allocated according to the following schedule:

      1.    First year: $12,000
      2.    Second year: $10,000
      3.    Third year: $8,000
