Foothills Nordic Finishes in the Top 3 for CCC’s Club Podium

Foothills Nordic finishes in the top three in two categories of CCC’s Club Podium, a new National racing club ranking system designed to recognize and promote club successes regarding HP development.

In the Large Club category for the Overall Ranking (total points of all metrics), Foothills Nordic won third place behind Nakkertok, ON-QC and Canmore Nordic, and finished third for Most Improved Club Overall behind Fondeurs Laurentides, QC and Telemark Nordic, BC.

CCC’s Club Podium 2017-18 final standings were determined based on the following criteria:

  • Number of CCC licensed athletes (as per final distance CPL)
  • Year Over Year (YOY) progression of athletes on the distance and sprint CPL
  • Athletes meeting International Points Benchmarks for their age on final distance and sprint CPL
  • Number of athletes taking part in CCUNC ranking at Nationals or in a sanctioned Para-Nordic race during the season
  • Number of CCC licensed coaches and their NCCP status

Club Podium ranking can be used by all clubs for the following purposes:

  • Recognition and prestige used to support club recruitment, visibility and sponsorship
  • Sharing of best practices between clubs
  • Setting overall yearly performance objectives expressed in % of pts increases YOY (for example, increase membership points by 10%, athletes’ progression points by 15%, etc.)

Awards will be presented in June at CCC’s Annual General Meeting.

Way to go Foothills Nordic!!!
