The Talent Identification Program (T.I.P.)

The Talent Identification Program (T.I.P.)

T.I.P. cards and scholarships are handed out by our program leaders and coordinators to athletes who we identify as top finishers. The program was designed to offer to promising young athletes the opportunity to explore track and field through our Youth Program or our Foundation Program. These Scholarships are handed out at elementary school X-Country meets in the Fall and at Track and Field meets in the Spring time. Over the past 8 years, hundreds of athletes have taken advantage of this opportunity.

T.I.P. Scholarships:

These scholarships are given at the Eastern Ontario Elementary Schools Cross Country Championships. It is good for one free seasonal session (Fall, Winter I, Winter II, Spring I, Spring II, or Summer) in the Youth or Foundation programs.

These scholarships can be applied to the Youth Summer Camp, for one week of camp.

T.I.P. Cards:

TIP cards are awarded at elementary school board cross country meets in the fall and track & field meets in the spring/summer. Athletes are entitled to 2 free weeks in our Youth or Foundation programs.  They can attend once or twice a week over the two week period.

If athletes wish to continue in either Program the regular price will be prorated to reflect the 2 free weeks in the program. You will need to register online for the program, then pay on-site with the prorated amount. Please email if you will be choosing this option to receive the correct pricing.

The T.I.P card can not be applied to the Youth Summer Camp.

T.I.P. Limitations

Athletes who have benefited from a previous T.I.P. scholarship are not eligible for a T.I.P. scholarship.

Athletes who have previously been in an Ottawa Lions Track and Field Youth or Foundation programs can benefit from the T.I.P. card, but must register for a complete session and pay for the session at the lower registration fees.
