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.
