Athlete Assistance Program
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, enabling athletes to combine their sport and academic or working careers while training intensively in pursuit of world-class performances. The AAP assists international caliber athletes with their training and competition needs, through the provision of a living and training allowance and, where applicable, tuition expenses. For more information, please visit the Sport Canada website.
Annually, Wheelchair Basketball Canada nominates the top ranked athletes from the National Team pool to receive funding through AAP. Athletes who are approved for funding and are financially supported through the AAP are referred to as carded athletes. AAP support is referred to as Carding. The AAP has three kinds of cards:
- Senior International Cards (SR1 and SR2 Cards)
- Senior National Cards (SR and C1 Cards)
- Development Cards (D Cards)
