Speed Requirements:

    • Holds must be IFSC certified: the host must be able to provide proof in the form of invoice or letter from the manufacturer.
    • Holds must be in “new” or “like new” condition (i.e. no chipping or surface variations and with adequate surface friction). 
  • Ability to use standard timing systems.
  • Regional Events only – Enough Speed holds to create the Official Youth C Speed route. Standard and certified holds are preferred, but not required for Youth C route.

Speed Format

  • Two (2) practice rounds run in the same running order as qualifiers
    • This can be changed on the discretion of the Technical Delegate and Jury President based on timing for the event
  • Two (2) qualifiers – Timed
  • Top sixteen (16) – elimination races

QUALIFICATION

Pathway #1 – Pre-Qualification Pathway

  • HPP Athletes
    • Current HPP Athletes at the 5 months mark will receive a direct invitation to the National Championships
    • Quotas will be discipline-based (HPP athletes in lead will receive invitation for lead event, etc)
  • Automatic Qualifying Times
    • Athletes performing an automatic time (determined by the HP staff) will receive an invitation to the National Championships
    • Automatic time will be determined at the start of the season, based on world-level averages
    • Time must be performed in sanctioned competition using an electronic timing system within the previous 12 months

Note: Unused quota from Pre-qualification Pathways will be re-allocated (added) to Provincial Qualification Pathways

Pathway #2 – Provincial Qualification Pathways

  • PTSO Guaranteed Nationals Quotas
    • Each province and territories will start with a fixed number of quota spots for the National Championships. The fixed number of quotas will be determined at least 5 months ahead of the National event based on capacity
    • Minimum required time may be added to the qualification process. This will be determined at least 5 months prior to the event based on facility capacity
    • Each province and territory has autonomy to decide how they will fill these quotas. CEC highly recommends the hosting of a fair competition to qualify the athletes in an equitable manner
    • Unused quota in this category will be re-allocated to the other provinces in the same region using a membership size priority system

Pathway #3 – Regional Quotas to Speed Nationals

  • PTSO quotas to Speed Regional Event

Day 2 of Workd champs today

Boulderers center stage today.

@rileyclimbs and Madison Fischer in Women's and @zach_richardson_ and @guymcnamee in Men's.

Maddie grabbed 2 tops and 3 zones to post 25th, her best IFSC Senior result to date and just outside semis. Riley managed to find 1 zone in her first ever IFSC Senior Competition to finish 71st. She will undoubtedly learn from the experience and be back stronger in the future.

Guy snagged 51st place in the men's with 1 top and 3 zones. A decent result for his IFSC Senior event. Zach couldn't find his usual form and finished 65th with 2 Zones. We know he'll be back 🙂

So nice to see the Maple Leaf on the World Stage!!
