The CBTF Technical Committee

Over the years, the CBTF Technical Committee has introduced many innovative steps to improve the development of our athletes, coaches and judges.  To name a few:

  • Creation of “Medley” – CBTF’s own unique competitive routine 
  • CBTF Set System used at all competitions using timed standard music for all individual/duet events
  • Adoption of flashcard scoring use at all competitions
  • Grand National Titles for Level A Champions
  • Development of Qualification Procedures for Canadian Team Trials, Championships and International Cup events
  • CBTF Pre-Competitive Events Program with standardized mini-routines for young athletes
  • CBTF Minimum Score to Advance Policy
  • CBTF Individual Group Status Determination process

CBTF celebrated 25 years of growth, unity and pride in 2004 and the organization is the recognized sports governing body for Baton Twirling in Canada.  Through the dedicated work and efforts of many volunteers, CBTF continues to update and revise its coaching, judging and skills development programs, improve its policies and procedures, interact progressively with other countries and maintain a high standard of athletic and professional development.
