Purpose of the Athlete Commission
The purpose of the Athletes’ Commission (AC) is to represent and promote the views and interests of the various athletes of Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) to the CEC’s Board of Directors and management on all issues which directly or indirectly affect athletes.
The AC is a group of athletes (former or current) that give recommendations to the CEC in order to bring about the best conditions for open competitors to compete, train and expand in. Discussions in the AC can vary from rules and regulations, quotas, performance, training camps, etc. The AC is responsible for thinking objectively for the good of all athletes in the country. Where possible, the AC should represent the diversity of the sport in Canada, from gender and geography to disciplines.
