SECTION A – PROGRAM INFORMATION

1. INTRODUCTION
The Yukon High Performance Athlete Assistance Program (YHPAAP) is an athlete assistance program offered by the Government of Yukon, Sport and Recreation Branch with assistance of funding by the Yukon Lottery Commission. It is intended to provide grant assistance to help offset training and competition expenses incurred by selected Yukon athletes who are able, through their results, to demonstrate that they are competing at a “high performance level” as defined by this program. The program is intended to assist those selected athletes while they continue to show improvement from year to year. Grants are based upon funding allocated to the program by YRAC as well as demonstrated performance and potential for improvement as shown by the athlete.
All grants will be made payable to the Yukon Sport Governing Body (YSGB) who then reimburses the athlete for eligible expenses.

2. QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PROGRAM



What is considered a “high performance level” of performance?

As a minimum, to be considered to be competing at a “high performance level”, an athlete must have results that show that, were they living and competing in a province such as BC or Alberta, they would be on that provincial team or have the potential to make that team.


What about “senior” or “masters” athletes?

The program is intended to support our developing youth athletes who are progressing through youth competitions up to and including “open” categories. It is not intended to support athletes competing in “masters” or “senior” categories. Based upon the philosophy of supporting developing youth athletes, the committee may choose to favour youth over adults even though they are competing in an “open” category.


How does one become a “selected” athlete as defined by this program?

A High Performance Jury reviews the YHPAAP applications and, based upon the information provided, selects those athletes who they feel are the most deserving of support. All selected athletes must meet the eligibility requirements as described below and must have demonstrated performance at a high performance level.


What if there is no Yukon Sport Governing Body (YSGB) for my sport?

If there is no YSGB for a sport, YSGB approvals are not required and responsibility for monitoring training lies with the athlete and their coach(es). Funds will be disbursed in these situations through Sport Yukon.


Do all athletes who meet the eligibility requirements and are performing at a high performance level receive funding?

No, not necessarily. The High Performance Jury will recommend those athletes they determine to be the most deserving of funding support and how much each should receive. The total amount of funds available for distribution by the YHPAAP is established earlier each year by the Yukon Recreation Advisory Committee. Based upon the amount of money made available to the program and the number and the quality of applicants, the Jury will recommend which applicants should receive funding and how much each should receive.


Once an athlete receives funding under the program can they expect continued funding in the future if their performance continues to improve?

No, not necessarily. As mentioned above, the particular athletes who receive funding and the amount they receive is dependant upon the amount of funds available in a particular year and the number and quality applications received. Also, as stated under the Assessment Criteria, an athlete can receive funding for a maximum of two years at the Bronze Level and a maximum of three years at the Silver Level.


What criteria or guidelines does the High Performance Jury use to make its funding decisions?

The Jury relies almost entirely upon the information provided by the athlete in their application. For this reason, it is vitally important that the athlete ensure that all of the required and beneficial information is provided, that it is accurate, that it is presented in a manner that will convince the Jury of the worthiness of the application and that it is submitted by the deadline. Completeness, accuracy, neatness and timeliness are critical. Applicants are requested to submit a covering letter along with their application so that they can provide the Jury with their personal perspective on where they see themselves as a developing athlete, how they view their future and also provide any additional information they feel would be valuable for the Jury.


Only those applications containing all of the mandatory information and approvals will be accepted. Incomplete applications or those not received by the deadline, will not be considered.
In general, the Jury will first decide on appropriate funding for the highest level (Gold) athletes and then progressively on down through the Silver and Bronze level applicants as the available funds permit.
Applications deemed to be complete will be assessed according to the ASSESSMENT CRITERIA AND MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS as defined in that section of this application.
What expenses does this program propose to offset?

This program’s primarily intention is to help offset actual training and competition expenses incurred by the athlete however it will also consider basic cost of living expenses for athletes who have had to move outside of the Yukon in order to train and compete. It does not propose to cover all of the expenses of this nature that the athlete may incur nor is it intended to cover any loss of wages resulting from training or competition nor any medical expenses unless they are associated with training or competition. Since the program recognizes the fact that it will not likely cover all of the training and competition expenses incurred by the athlete it also recognizes that the athlete will undoubtedly have to look for additional financial assistance elsewhere.


What if an athlete wishes to appeal a funding decision made by the High Performance Jury?

The YHPAAP is a program that provides grants to applicants. The program is designed such that a committee will, once a year, receive and consider all applications at one time and make recommendations on distribution of the total funds available for the year, at that time. As such, funding decisions of the High Performance Jury are final and there is no provision for appeal.



3. ATHLETE ELIGIBILITY



To be eligible for a YHPAAP grant, each applicant must:


  • be a Canadian citizen or have landed immigrant status for at least twelve months prior to deadline of submission.




  • be a resident of the Yukon as of the September 1st prior to the deadline for submission. If attending an educational institution outside of the Yukon, the applicant must have Yukon resident status.




  • be a member in good standing of a recognized YSGB, if one exists.




  • have competed as a Yukon athlete for the previous competitive season.




  • be on a formal 12-month training and competition program agreed to and monitored by the YSGB, the coaches and the athlete. This training and competition program must indicate the nature of training, the number of sessions and hours per week for the 12 months as well as the planned competitions for the complete 12-month period. It is the responsibility of the YSGB to approve and monitor training and competition programs of those athletes training outside of the Yukon. If the training program for the upcoming year has not yet been established, the athlete must provide a copy of the training program for the prior year and be prepared to update it once the new program has been established. Applications that do not include a 12-month training and competition program WILL NOT be considered for funding.




  • include with the application, a budget of expenses for the upcoming year. This budget should include those expenses relating to training and competition and where the athlete has been obliged to move outside of the Yukon in order to train and compete, may include basic cost of living expenses. Applications that do not include a budget of expenses WILL NOT be considered for funding.




  • compete for/represent the Yukon in inter-provincial competitions.




  • have shown potential for national ranking and/or achieved national ranking or placement in recognized provincial/national/international competitions.




  • willingly and voluntarily submit to prescribed testing for banned and/or illegal substances when requested by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, national or territorial sport governing bodies, YTG Sport and Recreation or competition organizers.




  • apply on an individual basis. Teams will be considered under this program on a case by case basis.




  • be willing, upon reasonable request, to share their knowledge and experience with other developing athletes. For those athletes who reside and train in the Yukon, this can occur within the normal training and competition environment. Athletes who have moved outside of the Yukon, in order to train and compete, will be expected to participate in at least one opportunity of “giving back” to their sport. This could occur in the form of making a presentation to local athletes, participating in a training camp with local athletes, providing assistance to Yukon athletes when they travel outside of the Yukon to compete or some other similar manner. Plans for this “giving back” opportunity must be specifically identified in the application and reported upon in the athletes Post Season Report.




  • include letters of endorsement from the athlete’s Head Coach and from the YSGB if one exists. Applications that do not include a letter of endorsement from the Athlete’s Head Coach and from the YSGB, if one exists, WILL NOT be considered for funding.




  • Athletes applying for Gold funding MUST also submit documentation/letters of endorsement from their national sport organization.


4. FACTORS WHICH MAY IMPACT ON ELIGIBILITY
The following factors may impact on funding eligibility:


  • lack of a signed code of conduct and/or a signed contract between the athlete and the YSGB, if one exists.




  • failure to provide a personal covering letter presenting the athlete’s personal perspective on where they see themselves as a developing athlete, how they view their future and providing any additional information they feel would be valuable for the Jury.

  • failure to document any previous YHPAAP assistance, i.e. outstanding post season reports. Goals and objectives that were established in the previous year’s training program that were not accomplished without sufficient reason.




  • failure to identify a “giving back” opportunity or to fulfil commitments to one that has been identified.




  • using non-medically prescribed, and/or banned, and/or illegal substances and/or other similar prohibited performance enhancing substances or techniques.




  • applications that do not have a signature from the YSGB, if one exists.




  • unless justifiable circumstances otherwise prevail, YHPAAP recipients are expected, to actively train on a 12-month basis with Yukon teams and compete with same at Canada Games, National Championships, etc. Failure to comply with this requirement may be cause for termination of assistance.




  • if a funded athlete is inflicted with a lengthy injury, a joint decision by the Yukon Sport Governing Body and YTG Sport and Recreation will be made to determine if funding will be affected (reduced or maintained). At all times the athlete must make every effort to rehabilitate and return to active participation as soon as medically possible and/or appropriate. Medical reports may be requested by the Sport Governing Body and/or YTG Sport and Recreation.


5. MANDATORY INFORMATION WHICH MUST BE PROVIDED
FAILURE TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY INFORMATION WILL RESULT IN AN ATHLETE BEING DEEMED INELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING:
- The Athlete’s One-Year Training Program for the upcoming year (or for the previous year if that for the upcoming year is not yet available).
- A Budget of Expenses for the upcoming year.
- Letters of Endorsement from the athlete’s Head Coach and the YSGB, if one exists.
- All Gold Level applicants must have a Letter of Endorsement from their NSO.
Note: References to YSGB above and its role and responsibilities are applicable only if a Yukon Sport Governing Body exists. If a YSGB does not exist, funds will be advanced through Sport Yukon and responsibility for monitoring training/competition will be assumed by the athlete’s head coach.
