National Winter Sports Development Association (NWSDA) Request for Club Proposals

News May 31, 2022
A financial assistance opportunity aimed at supporting the development of internationally competitive Canadian athletes in cross-country skiing.

The “National Winter Sports Development Association” (NWSDA) was established through the foresight and donation of the Disbrow family to assist cross-country ski clubs with proven ability to develop competitive skiers and coaches based on long-term development planning. The NWSDA has a Board of Directors which decides on the direction and allocation of the NWSDA grants.

Nordiq Canada manages and administrates the annual funding allocations of the NWSDA Board. Previous selection for club support strongly considered National competitive performances, as determined by results at the annual Canadian Ski Championships. While still relevant, prioritization has shifted to sustaining quality programs and enhancing the competitive sport development in Canada at the club level.

Submit to: Stephen Novosad, Coach & Athlete Development Manager, 

Closing Date: June 30, 2022
