Established with a generous donation from Jim and Margaret Fleck of Toronto, the Fleck Awards for Excellence support young Canadian athletes who have the potential to achieve Top 50 singles rankings on the Sony Ericsson WTA and ATP tours.
The selection criteria for the awards include past performances, future potential, and participation in Davis Cup and/or Fed Cup. The sole purpose of this fund is to offset the costs associated with on-tour coaching.
The fund will provide up to $25,000 per year, split among a maximum of two Canadian players. To be eligible, athletes must be Canadian citizens and full-time professional or transition players.
