Hub Information

The objective of Athletics Canada’s high performance program is to create sustainable success at the Olympic and Paralympic Games and at the World Championships.

  • Success at the Olympic Games and at the IAAF World Championships is defined by medallists and finalists.
  • At the Paralympic Games and IPC World Championships success is measured through gold medallists.
  • The high performance program is comprised of three layers of support:
  • High performance Hubs, whom all carded athletes have access to, are defined by quality coaching, critical mass of elite athletes and access to appropriate facilities and services. Athletes can choose to live and train in a Hub environment or drop in with their coach to access first-rate services.
