During the later months of 2011 the CBBF modified the rules for all CBBF events and changed the structure of our Executive Committee. We believe these changes were required to enhance the competitive opportunities for our athletes and to improve the CBBF as an organization.
Following extensive discussions with the IFBB President, Dr. Rafael Santonja and the VP of N.A. and President of the IFBB Professional League, Mr Jim Manion, we have overhauled our rules for all our events.
Athletes will certainly be happy with the changes to the rules for competitions and the various avenues they will have to continue their competitive careers into the IFBB Professional League or the IFBB International stream.
As far as changes in rules for competitions, they are as follows:
We have increased the number of classes for Bikini and Figure (Body Fitness).
At the Natural Physique Championships, weight classes for Bodybuilding have been limited. Depending on number of competitors the number classes may be increased.
All athletes at the Natural Physique Championships will be weighed and heights recorded. This will facilitate correct classes for selection by the CBBF Selection Committee for members of Team Canada, when official classes are combined.
The CBBF Selection Committee shall determine whether athletes will be provided financial or other assistance to compete at IFBB International events.
At the discretion of the CBBF Executive Committee, IFBB Professional League Cards will be provided at following CBBF National events.
We are opening all events for any promoter in Canada, for 2013, 2014, and 2015. If you are interested or know of a group or individual who may wish to bid on any or all of our 3 national CBBF events, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you know of interested sponsors for our events again please have them contact us at the above email address.
We are confident that these changes will provide additional stage presence for all our athletes and at the same time allow for a more efficiently run events.
The judging will also take place in a manner to enhance the presentation of athletes to our nationally and internationally qualified judges.
Thank you for your continued support of the CBBF and please stay tuned for additional changes during the coming months.
