2024-2025 Taekwondo AAP Carding Criteria

2024-2025 Taekwondo Athlete Assistance Program (AAP) – Carded List

The Athlete Assistance Program (AAP) is a sport funding program that contributes to the pursuit of excellence through its contribution to improved Canadian athlete performances at major international sporting events. This program enables athletes to combine their sport and academic or working careers while training intensively in pursuit of world-class performances.

Athletes who are approved for funding and are financially supported through the AAP are referred to as Carded Athletes. As stated in the Sport Canada AAP Policies and Procedures, “National Sport Organizations (NSO) may nominate Eligible Athletes for senior or development cards according to their published NSO approved AAP compliant carding criteria up to the maximum of the monetary value of the senior card quota”. Taekwondo Canada has received a quota of five cards for 2024-2025. Our quota for 2025-2026 will remain the same. However, Sport Canada regularly reviews its Carding allocations, therefore, this amount is subject to change.

Review of nominated athletes and final approval of the athletes are validated by Sport Canada and are in accordance with Sport Canada AAP Policies and Procedures.
