Q4G Ontario Athlete Assistance Program Funding – Direct to Athlete Support

The Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries (MHSTCI) has provided funding to Cross Country Ski Ontario to be directed towards either Direct to Athlete Funding or High Performance Program Funding.  Cross Country Ski Ontario is directing this funding to athletes.  The criteria for athlete nomination and selection will look much as it did pre-COVID with some added flexibility due to the flexible nature of the MHSTCI funding.

FIS Survey for Athletes YOB 2002-2009

The FIS Youth and Children cross country skiing committee wants to conduct a survey amongst young athletes (birth year 2002-2009) in order to get a better view of athletes’ thoughts about cross country skiing. These views help FIS to evaluate the current status as well as to determine the direction that cross country skiing should be taken.
The survey must be completed by April 30 2022!

The result of this survey will be revealed and shared in the FIS Congress meetings in May, and all nations participating will of course get the results for their own nation.
