Effective January 1, 2019 the CBTF Competitive Program will consist of 5 levels - C, BN, BI, BA and A.

As an organization, we are fortunate to have great materials and resources that have been developed over the years by many of our talented and knowledgeable members of the Technical Association.

With the abundance of information, it’s easy to forget that it’s available, and with such busy lives, it can be a challenge to find the time to locate all of the resources.

At the 2016 Fall Conference, the Level C (also SDP Silver Pin) and Level B (also SDP Gold Pin) Compulsory #9 was modifed. These changes were made to make a better progression from Level C through Level B and Level A/WBTF Elite.

February 24, 2017 - CBTF is proud of the Pre-Competitive Program that has been in existence for over 15 years. Many of our current elite level athletes started out in the program over 10 years ago, and are now realizing the rewards.

The Canadian Baton Twirling Federation (CBTF) expects that a high standard of professional conduct will be maintained by all members of the CBTF Technical Association (ie: Judges, Coaches, SDP Adjudicators, Course Conductors).

September 2016 clarification for Compulsory #10. This is the only version that will now be accepted.

October 2017 - Changes to the Level C Compulsories (SDP Silver Pin) and Level B Compulsories (SDP Gold Pin) were approved at the 2017 Fall Conference. The revised descriptions are attached below. The revised video demonstrations have been posted online, on the WBTF Role Model page.

February 1, 2016 - The attached tracking sheet, contributed by Tracy Eyssens, is being provided for all Technical Members to use to record their Continuing Professional Development activities during this interim period until these can be tracked directly in the CBTF Membership Database.

At their 2015 Summer Meeting, the WBTF Technical Committee adopted a Contact Material grid with accompanying demonstration video. This represents a significant step forward in their new Freestyle Judging System and also for their Coaching Program.
