OUR OBJECTIVES

The goal - 2024 Paris Olympics.  Though this does not mean that our focus in solely on the elite.  To build a sustainable sport structure in Canada we will need to focus on:

  • Grassroots: Functional Fitness is a safe, rewarding, and easily accessed sport to many Canadians.

  • Officials: Sport officials need a development pathway the same way athletes do.

  • Coaches: Responsible and trained coaches are critical to the success of any sport.

  • Promotion: The sport of Functional Fitness exists in most Canadian regions.  There remains huge potential for growth and recognition of what our athletes do.

  • Sanctioning: Many Functional Fitness events are held in Canada each year.  CFFF can sanction events that meet the highest standards in safety and quality of experience.
