Re-Integration

FOCUSED ON ENSURING THAT WORLD-CLASS TECHNICAL EXPERTISE REMAINS IN THE SYSTEM, THE RE-INTEGRATION PROGRAM PROVIDES FUNDING TO NSOS TO SUPPORT COACHES WHO WISH TO TAKE ON A MENTORSHIP ROLE WITHIN THEIR SPORT OR ANOTHER SPORT THAT MAY BENEFIT FROM THEIR EXPERTISE.

The intent is to allow senior coaches (and/or Olympic, Paralympic and World Championship medalist athletes transitioning to coaching in exceptional cases) to work in the pathway system in order to influence athletes and coaches. This may be due to coaches nearing retirement, a shift family circumstance or a desire to return to a more technical coaching role, including the transition to a next generation coaching or pathway leadership roles.

Re-integration Principles
  • Next Generation, Pathway Impact – Investment should clearly support circumstances that result in experienced coaches influencing other coaches and athletes in the NSO pathway system.

  • Type of Investment – There are two types of investments:

    • Salary-based; a supplement to a salary commitment from the NSO for a Re-integrated Senior coach to assume a pathway role for a set period of time

    • Project-based; an investment to an NSO that allows the re-integrated Senior coach to educate and influence Next Generation coaches and/or Pathway Leads

  • Complimentary Commitment, Diminishing CEP Investment – The NSO should be prepared to fund the majority of a salary-based investment required to support the initiative. The investment philosophy of this program is to decrease the CEP funding over time.

Targeted Coaches

Ultimately, the intent is to keep intelligence in the system (or bring it back to Canada) and to effectively support talented coaches who will benefit long-term from a shift in their current circumstance.

  • Senior coaches from Olympic and Paralympic sports currently in the system who are entering the retirement phase or will benefit from a break from senior coaching for a set period of time

  • Coaches who are working abroad who wish to share technical expertise with targeted NSOs

  • Rapidly evolving sports/disciplines retired medalist athletes who carry important sport intelligence and technical expertise who are committed to rapidly developing themselves as high performance coaches may be considered for this program
