Selection Criteria

The High Performance Committee is responsible for ensuring that the selection criteria for the national High Performance Program is implemented as published.  Athletes who aspire to be in the High Performance Program must commit to the program requirements outlined in the Selection Criteria.  The selection process is open to all Canadian bowlers that meet the eligibility criteria as outlined in the Selection Criteria. 

Bowlers wishing to be considered for a National Squad must also complete the Expression of Interest form and submit the requested materials within the time frames indicated.

Athletes are only selected to a National Squad within the time frame outlined in the Selection Criteria and Expression of Interest Form with exception of the Youth Squad which is identified based on placing in the top 2 at the Under 18 Junior and Under 25 disciplines of the Canadian Youth Championships.

Athletes who so wish will have the opportunity to participate in a Regional Evaluation Camp at their own cost.  Dates and locations can be found here.  Participation in a Regional Evaluation Camp is not mandatory for consideration of selection.
