We have world-class athletes and coaches in Canada. They have performed very well against top countries like China, Malaysia, Denmark, and Indonesia. Our priorities are to help get these dedicated athletes on more podiums around the world.
Our target is to raise $250,000 over the three years through this program by 2020. This crowd sourcing platform will be used to collect your initial pledge but we hope this is a start to a long-term relationship with all donors and that support will continue each year.
You may be surprised to learn that only 15% of Badminton Canada’s funding comes from government sources. We need to self-generate funds and resources to allow for our sport to grow and flourish in Canada.
Badminton Canada is rewriting the book on High Performance for Badminton in Canada and Identified three pillars that will uphold our vision. Your support will build these pillars for 2020. The pillars are:
Next Generation Team – We are investing in our future top players and supporting them with dedicated National Coaches, Training Camps, and Sport Science.
Targeted Support – As we get closer to the Tokyo Olympics (and future Olympic Games) Badminton Canada will invest heavily into those players who have the potential to win medals.
Enhanced Coaching – Badminton Canada will invest heavily into ensuring that our players have the best coaches to support their Olympic potential.
