SCHEDULE

This event will take place over 5 days:

  • Day 1 and Day 2 – Boulder Competition
  • Day 3 – Rest day
  • Day 4 and Day 5 – Lead Competition

Athletes can register and qualify in both disciplines, or only one discipline.

HOSTING REQUIREMENTS

CEC is looking for:

  • 1 host for the entire event (hosting both disciplines), or 
  • 2 hosts for this event (hosting one discipline each)

In the case that the event is held at two different facilities, both host facilities must be within 50km of each other (same city or region). Applications can be combined (two host facilities applying together) or individual (1 host facility applying and asking CEC to pair them up with another host). 

Strong consideration will be given to facilities that are supported by their Provincial / Territorial Sport Organization (PTSO). PTSOs can support more than one facility in their jurisdiction.

Boulder Requirements:

  • Minimum 30/40 linear wall space with independent fall zones allowing for 8 boulders to run simultaneously.
    • Consideration will be given to a 20m linear wall space with independent fall zones allowing for 4 boulders to run simultaneously should the above requirement not be met.

Lead Requirements:

  • Must be able to accommodate a minimum of 4, but ideally 6, individual lead routes at one time.
  • Walls should be at least 12m+ in height. Walls that do not meet this height requirement may still apply, but preference is given to those who fulfill this criterion.
  • Ability to drive one or two actuating boom or scissor lifts in the gym for event prep/setting is preferred.

COMPETITION FORMAT

Bouldering Format

  • Qualifiers – 5 on 5 off isolation. 4 Problems
  • Semi-Finals – 5 on 5 off isolation. 4 Problems
  • Finals – World Cup format, 4 minutes.  4 Problems 

 Lead Format

  • Two (2) qualifiers – Flash Format
  • One (1) Semi-Final – On-sight 
  • One (1) Final – On-sight. 

QUALIFICATION

Pathway #1 – Pre-Qualification Pathway:

  • HPP Athletes
    • Current HPP Athletes at the 5 months mark will receive a direct invitation to the National Championships
    • Quotas will be discipline-based (HPP athletes in lead will receive invitation for lead event, etc)
  • Continuous National Ranking
    • Additional athletes ranked in the CNR (ex: positions 7 and 8) may receive invitations as well, based on event capacity
    • Number of quotas will be determined at least 5 months prior to the National event
  • Youth Nationals
    • Top finishers from the most recent Youth Nationals in Youth A and Junior Categories
    • Number of quotas will be determined at least 5 months prior to the National event

Note: Unused quota from Pre-qualification Pathways will be re-allocated (added) to Provincial Qualification Pathways

Pathway #2 – Provincial Qualification Pathways

  • PTSO Guaranteed National Championships Quotas
    • Each province and territories will start with a fixed number of quota spots for the National Championships. The fixed number of quotas will be determined at least 5 months ahead of the event based on capacity
    • Each province and territory has autonomy to decide how they will fill these quotas. CEC highly recommends the hosting of a fair competition to qualify the athletes in an equitable manner
    • Unused quota in this category will be re-allocated to the other provinces in the same region using a membership size priority system
