Program area: Support4Sport High-Performance Coach Assistance
Nova Scotia coaches who work with Sport Canada carded athletes or athletes who have competed at a World Senior or World Junior Championships are eligible to apply. Coaches are eligible for funding up to $2,500.00 once per year. Coaches currently supported through coaching expense grants provided by the Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic are not eligible.
Funding amount: $27,000
The amount of funding allocated in this area could vary depending on how many coaches qualify during any one year.
Criteria for funding from this program will be based on the pre-existing criteria that have been determined through the cooperation of Sport Nova Scotia, the Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic, and the Department of Health and Wellness. These criteria are currently used to determine high-performance athlete funding in Nova Scotia.
Decisions will be made by a Support4Sport review committee including representatives from Sport Nova Scotia, the Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic, and the Department of Health and Wellness. In addition, staff will monitor athlete performances and attempt to contact any coaches who might have met the performance criteria. Once a coach has met the criteria, he/she will be funded for one fiscal year.
Coaches can apply at any time.
