NCDF-Team Coatsworth Athlete Grants
The NCDF Team Coatsworth Athlete Grant is an annual grant– launching in 2022-2023 – delivered through the Nordiq Canada Development Fund. The aim of the grant is to support individual elite athletes, who are in financial need, and have demonstrated potential for reaching international podiums. Athlete’s involvement in furthering their education will also be a consideration. This is established as a generous gift by long-time Canadian cross-country ski supporter and former Nordiq Canada Board Chair Jamie Coatsworth.
For 2022-2023, the grant will support three athletes with $2,000 of funding each, including:
- One Olympic stream female athlete
- One Olympic stream male athlete
- One Para Nordic athlete
