Structured high performance middle distance training
CTAC, like many non-profit corporations, has numerous operating costs and expenses. Now that we have established ourselves as not only a viable, but successful club, we need to begin planning for the long term. In order to operate our club effectively, we need to have two revenue streams, program fees and fundraising.
Monies generated through fundraising will be needed for expenditures like equipment, a team tent, travel expenses, training camps, and most exciting of all, a bursary for our athletes, assisting them in their pursuit of excellence. For example, did you know that most National Teams (Cross Country and Track) are self-funded? Each member of this year’s National Cross Country Team will pay $3500 for the privilege of representing Canada in Jamaica (NACAC) and Poland (World Championships).
A basic tenet of CTAC is to provide athletes with the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our goal is excellence. As our young members continue to improve, race opportunities further afield will be the norm rather than the exception. They will need races in the U.S.A. and all across Canada to ensure their continued development. In the very near future, many will be strong candidates for Junior and Senior National Teams.
Through these fundraising efforts, we can ensure the CTAC community fosters a positive and nurturing environment for all its members. CTAC is passionate about supporting our athletes and we want them to be able to avail themselves of every possible opportunity to succeed.
