Good Day Athletes,

Please view the information / criteria posted on the SFC Website found here. These
documents supersede any previous versions.

Linked to this message is the 2020 High Performance Program Criteria (National,
Development, Identified and Junior Teams). You will notice that changes to the
criteria have been made in hopes of producing a strong and overall well-rounded
High Performance Team. The High Performance Committee, with direction from
Own the Podium (OTP), has revamped the criteria to make it an easier read and to
align with OTPs targeted sport requirements. The charts are meant to serve as
quick reference points, however I encourage you to read the criteria in its entirety.

NEW FOR 2020
High Performance Team Trials (HPTT):
Mandatory attendance - Junior age eligible athletes who are named to the 2018/19
High Performance Program or Juniors who are not currently named to a High
Performance Team, are no longer mandated to attend High Performance Team
Trials. They may, if they wish, use the HPTT as one (1) or two (2) of three (3)
possible attempts to achieve a High Performance Program score.
Please note that attendance at the HPTT is mandatory if a Junior has paid the
2019 Identified, Development or National Team fee.
If a Junior is using the HPTT for one attempt only, the first course of fire of the
two competitions at the HPTT will count.
All athletes who are either Development, Identified, Junior or not currently named to
a High Performance Team may attain a 5th competition score in their home province.
As directed by OTP and in line with the SFC Long Term Athlete Development
(LTAD) framework document, athletes who have attained National Team status in a
specific discipline (i.e. air rifle) may not attain a 5th qualification score in their home

Documentation pertaining to World Cup Selections will be sent to athletes under
separate cover following the signing of all documentation and payment of team fees.
I wish you all the best in the upcoming season. Pan American Trials and Games
are upon us. We have so many talented athletes in Canada who work hard, and I
know will have a successful year. As always, should you have any questions or
concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your Athlete Representative, Mark
Hynes, at SFC.Athlete.Rep@gmail.com

Building an NCCP Yearly Training Plan

Hello Everyone,

The High Performance Committee is pleased to present an Adobe Connect presentation by Greg Sych on how to build your NCCP training plan. Moving forward, training plans will be an integral part of the High Performance Program. The Athlete Agreement that all High Performance Team members sign requires the submission of a training plan. The problem that many face is the lack of knowledge on how to complete a proper training plan.

The idea of this presentation is for Athletes to have available to them a source of information that they can access while building their plans. Each training plan submitted will be forwarded to the National Team Coach in their respective discipline and must be signed off by the coach before any allocations of World Cups or eligibility to compete for major games quota spots is allowed. This requirement has been part of the Athlete Agreement for quite a number of years, however, it has never before been enforced. As such, we are extending the time limit on submitting the COMPLETED training plan to January 15th, 2018. This will give each athlete plenty of time to work either independently or with the National Team Coach to assemble a working training plan. One thing that is important to remember is that training plans are living documents. What you submit is not written in stone. It is a guide to achieving success in the coming year. Changes to the document will be required throughout the year and these can be made with the help of your National Team Coaches. One never knows what the future will bring but like everything else we want to succeed in within our lives, always requires a plan.
