    Dear Members,

    We hope that this newsletter finds you healthy and warm as winter is upon much of the country now. COVID-19 impacted us all in 2020.  The safety of our families and our athletes came first in all our decisions this year. We have been fortunate to not lose funding and are managing better than many sport organizations. Not all our clubs and provincial organizations have been so fortunate and that may impact our sport in the longer term. We hope you all stay committed to rebuilding the foundations for our sports in 2021.  

    While our National championships were cancelled, Olympics postponed and many of us had to forgo competitions March through to June, our Domestic program has attempted to “go Virtual” in this new, less-travelled world and we now have a new and improved website in both official languages, a classification system for rifle and pistol (shotgun coming in the next year), co-hosted Community Satellite Events and a monthly coast to coast championships program.

    We have secured and updated our staff positions and job descriptions and have three employees whose duties are posted on the website for all to understand how our office functions. These staff, Connor, Joey and Sue have helped us improve our office procedures, our responsiveness to our membership and meet our obligations as a National Sport Organization. Our financial accounting and new and improved Finance committee is up and ensuring we improve our fiscal risk management.

    Our major funder SPORT CANADA has required that the SFC commit to align with the Universal Code of Conduct and the Respect in Sport movement. This has added commitment for our volunteers and athletes to take the training and walk the talk of respectful conduct in all aspects of sport. We have contracted a third party to deal with respect and harassment complaints required of us as a National Sport Organization. This should provide athletes, parents, officials and coaches assurance that complaints can be dealt with in a fair manner.

    We have supported our High Performance team members and coaches with their broken up training programs and improved our mental training program and our mental health policies in the process.

    We are still working on a few things: We are trying to improve our connectedness to our Provincial and Territorial Sport Organizations; we have a volunteer liaison trying to influence Hamilton bid for the 2026 Commonwealth Games to including target shooting sports and we are trying to improve the availability of coaching programs for both community and high performance level coaching. Our year of funding doesn’t end in December and we have work planned through to March to meet our operational goals.

    Please, if you are looking for things to do, think about becoming an SFC volunteer to become a trained coach, official, design and implement our marketing strategy, help out on a committee or just help us proof read our webpage to improve it for our members. Any skills you have to offer would be welcomed.

    Hello Athletes, Coaches and Members of the SFC,

    The Shooting Federation of Canada believes in providing a respectful safe environment for the enjoyment and pursuit of excellence in our sport. We have developed a Mental Health Strategy (MHS) to guide our IST practitioners, coaches, athletes, and support personnel. The MHS includes the steps and parameters needed to ensure the health and safety of the individual in crisis as well as the health and safety of those around them.

    To help us create a robust and clear MHS we joined forces with Susan Cockle, Psychologist and Sport Mental Performance Consultant. Please join us via BlueJeans on November 24th, 2020 @ 6:30 pm for the launch of our Mental Health Strategy.


    Thank you.

    Lisa Deneka,

    VPHP, SFC


    Chers athlètes, entraineurs et membres de la FTC,

    À la Fédération de tir du Canada, nous croyons que notre sport doit se pratiquer dans un environnement sécuritaire afin que tout le monde y trouve du plaisir et que nos athlètes puissent y atteindre leur plein potentiel. Nous avons donc développé une Stratégie de santé mentale (SSM) afin de guider les membres de l’équipe de support intégré (ESI), les entraineurs, les athlètes et le personnel de soutien. La SSM inclue les procédures et les paramètres nécessaire pour s’assurer de la santé et de la sécurité des individus en crise, de même que de celles de ceux qui les entourent.

    Afin de nous aider à créer une SSM claire et solide, nous nous sommes associés avec Susan Cockle, psychologue et consultante en performance mentale. Vous êtes donc tous invités à vous joindre à nous sur BlueJeans le 24 novembre prochain, à 18 h 30, pour le lancement de notre Stratégie de santé mentale.


    Merci !

    Lisa Deneka,

    V.-p. HP, FTC

    New virtual championship for rifle, pistol and shotgun shooters. Visit our Coast to Coast Championship web page and we hope you will be able to participate!


    Updates:

    October 2, 2020

    Dear members,

    We’ve had a few questions regarding the Coast to Coast Championship, specifically with regards to score submission.

    At this time, we are all working through a second wave of COVID-19, which will likely result in limited access to, or closure of clubs throughout the country.

    If there is a concern about timing of score submission due to lack of access to your range, please just focus on submitting your scores by the end of the month each month. We have set up the schedule, and hope that most will be able to compete within those dates, however I recognize that we cannot predict what will happen in terms of Municipal, Provincial, or Federal mandates in the coming weeks and months. Your personal comfort levels and safety should be the main priority.

    To ensure your participation is logged and added to the leaderboard, please submit your scores for the month no later than Saturday, October 31st, 2020.

    If there are any further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

    Yours in Sport,

    Connor Deneka
