The OCF is seeking an Ontario coach to design and implement training camps for both the Bouldering and Difficulty seasons. Training camps offer an opportunity for athletes to learn, interact and become better competitors as well as prepare for regional and national events.
Tentative 2019-2020 training camp dates are as follows:
Nov 30/Dec 1 – A/Jr/Open Boulder Training Camp
Jan 4/5 – C/B Boulder Training Camp
Apr 18/19 – C/B & A/Jr/Open Difficulty Training Camps
Launching the training camps will operate in two phases. Phase 1 is the design of a complete training camp plan. Phase 2 will be the execution of the camps.
For Phase 1, the chosen applicant will be asked to develop a complete training camp plan which includes the following:
Full schedule including ideas such as:
Mock comp rounds;
Drills and exercises;
Mental workshops; and
Compensation for Phase 1 will be an honorarium of $500.
If the OCF Board decides to proceed with Phase 2 (implementing the camps), the successful applicant will be hired to run the training camps and support the Ontario team at CEC events. Full job description and compensation for Phase 2 will be determined based on the plan and budget.
To apply for this position, an applicant must provide:
Resume including details of coaching experience, coaching certifications and any past experience with training camps;
Brief vision for the training camp(s)
Interested candidates are asked to submit their application to email@example.com by Friday September 6, 2019.
GOOD LUCK to all 91 of our athletes traveling to Montreal this weekend to represent Team Ontario at LSN 2019.
The competition starts early Saturday morning at Allez Up in Montreal and will consist of both Difficulty (D) and Speed (S). Check out the event website – http://climbingcanada.ca/en/lsn-2019/ for additional information.
The OCF Registrar (Davis Barton) will register all Ontario athletes during LSN Registration on Friday afternoon. She will be at Allez Up between 7:00 and 7:30pm (the half hour before the Technical meeting) to distribute athlete bibs to Ontario coaches. For any alternate arrangements, please contact Davis directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to space restrictions at the competition, the CEC will only permit one coach per team/gym to enter ISO at a time. The coach “ISO badge” is interchangeable (i.e., coaches can switch out between rounds), but it can only be used by a coach that has a valid CEC membership. Coach badges will be distributed at the same time as the athlete bibs (see above). For any alternate arrangements, please contact Davis at email@example.com.
In addition, please ensure that you are monitoring the event page that the CEC has created http://climbingcanada.ca/en/lsn-2019/ to ensure that you are aware of any last minute changes or other important information.
Please arrive at gym in plenty of time for the Technical Meeting for your heat. Heats will start immediately following the conclusion of previous heat’s Final.
Note: There is only one practice run for each category immediately preceding the Qualifying Races. The running order for practice round will be randomized and posted at gym. Competitors must remain in the competition area for the duration of their heat until eliminated.
In order to meet the CEC’s new
eligibility criteria for Speed Nationals, the OCF Speed/AGM Event that was
planned for May 11th will now serve as the official qualifier for Ontario athletes
