You have likely been asked by a potential Falcon Sport School applicant for our September cohort to complete this form on their behalf. Our program is comprised of athletes in grades 9-12 and provides these athletes with additional training to make them better all around athletes. Using a focus on Olympic Weightlifting, Sprinting and Gymnastics as the basis of our training, athletes will have a better understanding and control of their bodies. Our goal is to support our future Territorial team athletes to reach the next level in their high performance pathway, so that they may one day represent Yellowknife, and the Northwest Territories on a bigger stage.
Following the application process, applicants who meet our eligibility criteria will be interviewed and ranked according to a framework which takes into consideration, athletic potential/achievement, academic work habit standards and their interview. This process will allow us to better ensure the athletes coming into our program are aware of the goals, the type of training we do and the overall benefits of being in this program.
Thank you for your assistance in this process and your time and effort is greatly appreciated. As a multi-sport organization, we look to our TSO and NSO partners to provide us with the sport specific technical expertise to help us evaluate our applicants’ athletic performance. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our PE Department Head, Paul Shearme, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Paul will follow up with you as needed (after applications close and before interviews begin) to discuss the applicant if need be.
