KSA's Athletic Excellence program
Initiated in late 2012
Updated Sunday October 15, 2017 by Kitchener Sports Association.
The Athletic Excellence Program was established in October 2012 to facilitate provision of KSA financial assistance to local minor athletes requiring extensive travel to compete at national (or equivalent) or international events/competitions and/or extensive coaching, training or equipment expenses/needs.
Local minor sports organizations are encouraged to inquire and forward information on behalf of their top performers. Funding, up to a maximum of $2,000, will be provided on an annual basis based on an athlete's annual budget, performance record and validation from his/her local sports club, provincial sports body (PSO) and national sports body (NSO).
Athletes wishing to be considered for funding under this program should submit the necessary documentation as soon as possible to ensure consideration can be given for the current funding period. It is expected that there will be two main submission dates for consideration: one in the fall (September/October) and another in the spring (March/April). Note: Applications may, depending on circumstances, be given consideration in the interim periods.
The first athlete to receive funding under this KSA funding program was Monica Burgess. Other athletes who have received funding under this program include Mandy Bujold (boxing), Tyler Varga (tackle football), Joey Daniels (track/hurdles), Ben Flanagan (cross-country track), Victoria Wilson (water polo), and Matthew Hall (curling).
