The Elite Program was borne out of the Provincial Athlete Pathway Review Project that took place in 2020.
You can acess the PDF of the project’s Final Report here.
The Elite Program is a high-performance program designed to provide individualized support to athletes that have been identified just below the NextGen level, and is comprised of athletes that have been selected to the FHBC – Canadian Sport Institute Targeted Athlete list, but are not actively training in the FHC NextGen program (either not selected to NextGen or have opted out). The program is designed to support athletes in their goals to reach the National team level.
The CSI Targeted Athlete List is updated yearly. The next opportunity for evaluation will be through a series of Provincial Talent Identification events. Please note that the Elite Program is separate from the Provincial Program.
