Important information for those seeking to qualify for Speed Nationals:
- Open athletes: there are no quotas in place for open categories; however open athletes must attend the event in order to qualify for Speed Nationals.
- Youth athletes: the OCF has been given a quota of 8 athletes per age/gender category. We will fill this quota with the top eight athletes in each category (who are interested in attending Nationals) based on the results of this event. It is important that athletes identify whether they wish to be considered for Speed Nationals so that we choose our roster only from those who plan to attend Nationals if selected.
- Open athletes who have competed internationally within the previous 20 months (Pan Am Championships, World Cup) are automatically qualified for Speed Nationals and are exempt from the above requirements.
- Athletes who are eligible for a Special Invitation (see CEC post dated April 17th) must apply directly to the CEC by the deadline of April 30th.
- For more information on the CEC’s new provincial quotas and qualifying requirements policy, please see the CEC post dated March 27th
- Note: We have secured an extension of the CEC Speed National registration deadline for Ontario athletes until after the May 11th event
