Nova Scotia Performance Pathway Initiative (NSPPI)

The goal of the Nova Scotia Performance Pathway Initiative is to position the Province as a recognized leader in the Nation when it comes to athlete and coach development. This will be achieved by creating a pathway that will lead to athletes, coaches and administrators contributing to Canada’s international success.  We have been accepted into this project that will replace the current Canada Games Funding Program. All Provincial Sport Association in Nova Scotia were eligible to apply.  Athletics NS will be working closely with Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic, Province of NS, Athletics Canada and Dr. Peter Davis on this project.  A working group (Staff and Board) has been set up and we will be reaching out to our membership at various times for further support and input on the plan.  The first workshop was held for working groups on October 25 and the draft plan part 1 will be due in early December.  In December we will have one on one meetings with supporters to review of draft plan.  In January the working group will meet again to discuss implementation and timelines on this project.  The final plan will be due March 15, 2017 and we will be notified on our funding status by May 31, 2017.
