CEC Scheduling Guiding Principles

CEC will use the following guiding principles when creating the schedule for a competition season. These are not specific rules or policies; rather, these are the guidelines that CEC will endeavour to satisfy when crafting a competition schedule. In some cases, it will be impossible to satisfy all of the guiding principles. Should that occur, CEC will endeavour to strike a reasonable balance between the guiding principles.

Integration with International Sport Climbing

To ensure alignment with the International Federation, CEC will endeavour to

  • align with the IFSC schedule and requirements
  • align with the Olympic format and cycle:
  • Paris 2024: Boulder & Lead (Combined) and Speed
  • LA 2028: TBD (hoping for all 3 disciplines)

Accessibility and Opportunity

To enable athletes across Canada in all categories to flourish, CEC will endeavour to

  • offer opportunities in all three disciplines (Boulder, Lead, and Speed)
  • offer national opportunities for Youth B, Youth A, Junior, and Senior
  • offer regional opportunities for Youth C, Youth B, and Youth A
  • support the development and growth of climbing in all Canadian markets
  • keep events accessible, including by alternating Nationals between East and West

Athlete-Centered

To provide athletes with the best possible competition experience, CEC will endeavour to

  • minimize travel requirements
  • provide adequate lead time for travel bookings
  • minimize competition costs to athletes
  • provide a selection process for the High Performance Program and Youth World Championships
  • avoid holding competitions on weekdays when possible

Follow Long Term Development (LTD) Principles

In support of appropriate and effective long-term development of our athletes, we will endeavour to

  • encourage and support participation of athletes across all three disciplines until athletes reach the Senior level, recognizing that climbing is a late-specialization sport
  • ensure competitions are planned and run with the specific athlete audience in mind based on the long-term development pathway
  • support athletes’ periodization of training vs. competition ratio

Partnership with Event Hosts

Recognizing the importance of Event Hosts to a successful competition season, CEC will endeavour to:

  • minimize expenses to Event Hosts
  • minimize logistic requirements for Event Hosts
  • maximize potential revenue through public and local grants
  • work with Event Hosts to support growth of Canadian climbing facilities
  • avoid scheduling competitions in busier and more profitable times of year

Support for CEC Members and Stakeholders

To provide support and clarity to all our stakeholders, CEC will endeavour to

  • schedule events two years in advance
  • listen to stakeholder input
  • support selection process with clear qualification pathways
  • support innovative ideas and solutions

Today, the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games proposed to the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) to add Para Climbing to the 2028 Paralympic Sport Program. That is one step closer to inclusion of our sport in the Paralympic Games!
