CEC Licences

The CEC does not have individuals as members. The members of CEC are the Provincial and Territorial Sports Organizations (PTSOs), as well as the Alpine Club of Canada (ACC). 

A CEC licence (Athlete or Coach) is mandatory for participation in all CEC-sanctionned events and programs (National Series events, National Championships, North American Cup events, etc). Yearly licences are valid from October 1 to September 31 of the following year. Please note that the 11 & Under age group (Youth D) does not compete at Youth Nationals.

If you reside and compete in a province with a Provincial and Territorial Sports Organization (PTSO) we encourage you to register with your PTSO for your local, provincial, or territorial competitions. Your provincial membership allows you to participate and be ranked in your Provincial Series, benefit from your PTSO services and vote for your provincial representatives.
