Masters Athletes' Funding Initiative
The RMC will continue to offer its age group funding initiative for Masters Athletes looking to represent our club at international events. More information can be found below:
In 2019, the Regina Multisport Club (RMC) will make $7,000 of sponsorship available to qualified athletes representing the Regina Multisport Club while competing at international championship events. This funding will be divided equally among eligible athletes, to a maximum of $1,000 per athlete.
To qualify you must:
1. Hold a current annual membership of RMC and STAC.
2. Register and participate in one of the following events through earned entry:
* as a member of Team Canada (by winning a qualifying spot or roll down) to attend the 2019 Pontevedra ITU Multisport World Championship Festival or 2019 Lausanne ITU Triathlon Grand Final.

Possible other events include:

* The intent of the Funding Initiative is to reward the excellent performance of community-minded RMC members through support to attend highly competitive special triathlon events. Triathlon event can also mean aquathlon, duathlon or off road event.
* This funding is intended for athletes who have met competitive standards to attend the listed events. It is not intended to fund athletes who are able to register for the listed events through later date general admissions or other means. Team Canada registrations must be Stage 1 or Stage 2 registration.

* This funding is available to all RMC members who meet the qualifications, including board members, race directors and coaches.
* Eligible athletes will not be funded for multiple events.
* Ongoing availability, criteria, and amount of the Competition Funding Pool will be reviewed by the RMC Board of Directors annually.
