Dear Masters and instructors,
An updated version of the CTFI Canadian Team manual has been posted here. Recently reviewed and approved by the CTFI Board of Directors, this document has some major revisions to take into account changes over the past 2 years in both ITF and CTFI rules. It describes the roles of the various members of the Canadian Delegation to a World Championships, including job descriptions and qualifications for selection. It gives full details on the recent changes to the process for athletes to qualify for the Delegation. It also contains a detailed description of the seeding system, how athletes accumulate points and how the standings are used to seed the competition draws for CTFI Regional and National tournaments.
