Competition Trip Criteria 2020-2021

December 16, 2020

Nordiq Canada is pleased to announce that the 2020-21 Competition Trip Selection criteria is now posted. Please review this document for more information.

Nordiq Canada’s objective for the 2020-21 competition season is to maximize Canada’s nation ranking through world cup points, while managing risk associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to achieve the necessary points for Canada to maintain or improve its nation rankings so as to secure quota spots for the 2022 Olympic Games. In the absence of competitions in Canada in the 2020-21 season from which to evaluate athlete performance, Nordiq Canada and the High Performance Committee – after lengthy discussions – have decided on the approach outlined in the Competition Trip Selection criteria for selecting athletes to compete for Canada on the World Cup, World U23 and World Junior Ski Championships and the World Ski Championships.

Team selections for upcoming international competitions will be announced and posted in the ‘News’ section of the Nordiq Canada website on Friday, December 18.

The following policies are relevant to the competition trip team selection process:

We would like to thank the ski community for their patience and understanding as we navigate through the ever changing and emerging challenges of the current competition environment.
