AAP (Athlete Assistance Program)

The BC Athlete Assistance Program (BC AAP) is an athlete-centered program of financial assistance funded by the Provincial Government which provides a system of recognition and financial support for BC's high performance athletes. The intent of the program is to provide support

How does it work?

Each year the Provincial Government allocates a certain amount of BC AAP funding to each Provincial Sport Organization (PSO). Along with the funding are guidelines regarding minimum funding criteria that the PSO must follow when allocating funds to the athletes. These are included on the following pages. In addition to these guidelines, the PSO (Synchro BC) is responsible for forming a Selection Committee that establishes criteria to further select athletes for the program. Once the athletes are selected, the funds are distributed. The BC AAP program seeks to “relieve some of the pressures associated with training and competition needs when participating in national and international sport.”
