Sport North's Rising Star Funding

The Rising Star follows the CS4L train to train model. It is a program that provides funding to athletes (females 11-15 and males 12-16) that exhibit potential in their sport of choice and wish to receive additional training through a camp format.

Grant Details:

·         Females must be between the ages of 11-15 years & males must be between the ages of 12-16 years

·         The camp should focus on sport specific skill development/training more so than competitions, and tournaments

·         The camp/schedule must show that there is sport specific technical, tactical and fitness training approximately 9-12 times per week

Understanding Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L)

There has been a nationwide shift in the education and delivery of sport, known as Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L).   This movement has generated a new way to train and develop our youth.  As a result, the Rising Star program will focus its funding on the Train to Train category of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD). Additional information on CS4L can be found at

Train to Train

Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT)

At the last Hockey Northwest Territories board meeting , a motion was passed that as of November 15th of this year every team must have at least one person on their travel permit who has the CATT training. If a team has a Safety person, that person is ok to be the team official for this year but they must be listed on the travel permit as a team official in the Safety person role.

For the 17/18 season all team officials will be required to have the CATT training.  This training is now mandatory in BC and may come into play for those travelling to BC for tournaments.

This training takes around 40 minutes. The link for this training is
