Nova Scotia Performance Pathway Initiative (NSPPI)
The NSPPI is a new funding and training vehicle to develop young performance athletes in Nova Scotia. It replaced the old Canada Games funding model.
NSPPI is now in the process of assembling a squad of young squash players who will participate in this program.
PURPOSE: To assist provincial Junior Squash Athletes (JSA) on a performance pathway leading to a higher level of performance and showing promise towards achieving a position on a National Athlete Development Team (age group) and/or a National Team (Junior and/or Senior) Training Squad.
