The Provincial Development Program
Triathlon Ontario is committed to providing a progressive Provincial Development Program (PDP) for Youth, Junior and U23 athletes residing and training in Ontario. Triathlon Ontario believes that in order for Triathlon to succeed in Canada, Ontario’s athletes must be prepared to race at the International level. It is Triathlon Ontario’s goal to establish the systems and processes for Ontario athletes that will enable Ontario to fill between half and two thirds of the National Development Team spots by 2020 and half and two thirds of National Team spots by 2024.
The Provincial Development Coach’s (PDC) role is to add value to each Provincial athlete’s home training environment by working with the athlete and coach (where applicable) to identify development and sport specific skill GAP’s and to offer information, training support in cooperation with the athlete’s home environment. Triathlon Ontario recognizes that each athlete may have a unique situation and athletes may require varied levels of input and support by the PDC.
