Australian Canoeing (AC) is committed to supporting the development of future Champions, assisting athletes and coaches to reach their full potential, and enabling clubs to provide high quality daily training environments for National Team athletes and future prospects.
As such, AC will be implementing Pathway Program Accreditation for training centres offering elite development programs for athletes in the Olympic disciplines of Canoe Slalom, Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe.
The Pathway Program Accreditation scheme aims to recognise and reward training centres actively contributing to the AC High Performance Pathway.
Eligible training centres will be recognised as Gold, Silver or Bronze Pathway Programs, primarily based upon participation and performance in National events and initiatives, representation on National Teams and Squads, and capacity to provide a suitable daily training environment for pre-elite athletes.
Accredited Pathway Programs will receive direct financial and/or in kind support to enhance the quality of the daily training environment for National Team athletes and future prospects, and encourage continued participation in National events and initiatives.
Recognition as a Pathway Program will be reviewed annually, for the period July–June.
Applications for Pathway Program Accreditation are now open!
For more detailed information on Pathway Program Accreditation including an outline of the levels of recognition, eligibility criteria, rewards / benefits, and Accreditation processes, please view the Pathway Program Accreditation Outline.
To apply for Pathway Program Accreditation, please complete the Pathway Program Accreditation Application form before July 5, 2015.
Pathway Program Accreditation is an initiative of the AC National Elite Development Program (NEDP), and is graciously supported by the Australian Institute of Sport.
