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 OTP’s 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
province.

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

Sincrerely,

Lisa Deneka
VP High Performance

Chers athlètes,

S'il vous plaît utiliser les informations /critères affichés sur le site Web de la FTC trouvé ici. Ces documents remplacent toutes les versions précédentes.

Vous trouverez le document Critères du Programme de haute performance de 2020 (pour les équipes nationales, de développement, de la relève et junior) en pièce jointe. Vous constaterez que des modifications ont été apportées aux critères afin de renforcer l’équipe de haute performance et de s’assurer que la composition de cette dernière soit équilibrée. Avec les conseils d’À nous le podium (ANP), le Comité de haute performance a reformulé les critères afin qu’ils soient plus faciles à comprendre et qu’ils correspondent aux exigences d’ANP pour les sports ciblés. Les tableaux vous permettront d’avoir une vue d’ensemble rapide, mais je vous encourage à lire tous les critères attentivement.

NOUVEAU EN 2020
Essais de l’équipe de haute performance (EEHP)
Participation obligatoire – Les athlètes admissibles d’âge junior qui obtiennent une place au sein du Programme de haute performance 2018-2019 ou les athlètes juniors qui ne sont actuellement pas membres de l’équipe de haute performance ne sont plus obligés de participer aux essais de l’équipe de haute performance. S’ils le souhaitent, ils peuvent toutefois effectuer une (1) ou deux (2) des trois (3) tentatives prévues pour l’obtention du pointage de qualification du Programme de haute performance lors des EEHP.
• Il convient de souligner que la participation aux EEHP est obligatoire si l’athlète s’est acquitté des frais pour l’équipe de relève, de développement ou nationale de 2019.
• Si les athlètes juniors utilisent les EEHP pour une seule tentative, le premier parcours de tir des deux compétitions des EEPH sera pris en considération.
Tous les athlètes des programmes de développement, de la relève ou junior ou qui ne font actuellement pas partie de l’équipe de haute performance peuvent obtenir un cinquième pointage de compétition dans leur province.

Comme le conseille ANP, et conformément au cadre de développement à long terme de l’athlète (DLTA) de la FTC, les athlètes qui ont accédé au statut de membre de l’équipe nationale dans une discipline donnée (p. ex., la carabine à air) ne peuvent pas obtenir un cinquième pointage de qualification dans leur province.
La documentation concernant la sélection en vue de la Coupe du monde sera transmise aux athlètes séparément lorsque tous les documents pertinents auront été signés et que les frais d’équipe auront été payés.
Je vous souhaite la meilleure des chances tout au long de la saison à venir. Les essais et les Jeux panaméricains approchent à grands pas. Les athlètes canadiens regorgent de talent et ne ménagent pas leurs efforts, et je suis persuadée que le succès sera au rendez-vous. Comme d’habitude, si vous avez des questions ou des préoccupations, n’hésitez pas à communiquer avec Mark Hynes (SFC.Athlete.Rep@gmail.com), votre représentant des athlètes.


Merci!

Announcing 2018 World Championships Eligible Athletes

Good Day All,
 
Attached please find the list of athletes who are eligible to compete at the 52nd ISSF World Championship All Events in Changwon, Korea.  As the SFC has been allocated a limited number of starting positions, entries will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. 
 
Please email the Technical Director, Susan Verdier, at sverdier@sfc-ftc.ca with your intention to attend or to decline participation in the 2018 World Championships no later than 10 am EST, Friday June 22nd, 2018.

The High Performance Committee would like to remind athletes that the CAT Championship in Guadalajara MEX is the absolute priority for SFC High Performance Program athletes.  Please ensure that you focus all possible resources (vacation and money) on attending this event.  We cannot stress the importance of competing in the CAT Championship enough as it provides one of the best opportunities for Canadian athletes to achieve quotas in the shooting sports for both the Pan American and Olympic Games.

2019 Athlete Selection Criteria - Update

December 22, 2017

To adjust for the new courses of fire for women as just approved and released by the ISSF and to clarify item 12 of the 2019 selection criteria, the HPC has amended the 2019 criteria. The affected areas and amendments are listed below.  We encourage everyone to read and review the entire criteria as available on the SFC website. 

Item 12. now reads: 

Athletes are expected to complete all courses of fire, including finals if applicable, in any cut score, team trials, or international match (including US selection matches) in which they are registered unless there are unforeseen circumstances (examples: illness/injury, equipment malfunction, match rescheduling)

This expectation extends to the Canadian national matches which may have multiple courses of fire that go beyond the HPTT criteria/designation of 2 courses of fire.

Items 22. National Team Ranking,  27. Development Team Ranking and 31. Identified Team Ranking have been amended to reflect the new courses of fire:

The scores from the two (2) complete courses of fire shot in each event at the HPTT/selection match held in conjunction with the Canadian National Championships shall be added together to produce an aggregate score. This aggregate score (without finals) will be used to rank all eligible athletes for each event.

In men’s Prone rifle, two (2) rounds will be used for High Performance Team ranking. When the HPTT is conducted at the Canadian National Championships and three matches are shot over two days, the first match of each day will be used for National Team selection. (N.B. items 12 & 16 of these criteria)

In Trap and Skeet events for both men and women, the first 250 targets shot during the Trials will be used to determine team ranking.  In the Double Trap event for men, the first 300 targets shot during the Trials will be used to determine team ranking. (N.B. items 12 & 18 of these criteria)

N.B. Full ISSF finals shall be conducted if there are two or more competitors in any given event.


Qualifying Scores

All score levels of affected events have been updated to reflect the additional shots/targets that are in the women’s events.  Score levels have been extrapolated based on the previously released criteria (ex women’s air rifle identified team = 400 for 40 shots, now is 600 for 60 shots). All new score tables are available for viewing in the updated 2019 criteria available on the SFC website.  

Any qualifying score matches completed prior to this announcement that produced a qualifying score based on the previous scores listed in the 2019 Team Selection Agreement will be honored.  We will revisit the scores at the end of the shooting season.

2019 SFC Athlete Selection Criteria - Update December 22, 2017

 

What’s new in 2019 - Letter to SFC High Performance Athletes

November 13, 2017

Good Day Athletes,

Linked to this message is the 2019 Athlete Selection Criteria.  You will notice that major changes have taken place to the criteria in hopes of producing a strong and overall well-rounded High Performance Team.

New for 2019 is the addition of a third level in the team structure.  The Identified Team has been created to recognize up-and-coming athletes and encourage their participation in training camps as well as introduce them to the National Team coaches who will help guide them to success and support them in their journey.  It’s all about transitioning and supporting our athletes through their careers.

We are putting emphasis on the required submission of athlete training plans.  To aid you in developing your plan, we have created an Adobe Connect Webinar to help guide athletes and their coaches in the proper construction of an NCCP based training plan.  Please take advantage of the webinar.  All National Coaches will also be able to help guide you in your training plan.  As training plans are new to some athletes, we are extending the deadline for submission of the training plans to January 15, 2018.  This will give athletes the opportunity to build, adjust and finalize 2018 training plans with the help of their personal and National Coaches.  The only exception to this extension will be to athletes who are applying for 2018 AAP carding support.  Those athletes musts adhere to the deadline provided by the Technical Director, Susan Verdier.

Also new this year is the addition of another High Performance Team Trial (HPTT).  All athletes must attend both Trials as these make up 4 of the possible 5 opportunities to achieve qualifying scores for 2019.  The extra HPTT being held May/June 2018 (exact date TBD) is also the Phase 1 CAT Championships Trial event and the World Championship Trial event that is open to all 2018 Development and National Team members.  

I wish you all the best in the upcoming season.  Train hard and kick ass.  We have so many talented athletes in Canada, let’s work hard to let that shine through by having a successful year.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to send me an email at:  vphighperformance@sfc-ftc.ca

Building an NCCP Yearly Training Plan

?October 30, 2017

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.
