The EVA of BC is a registered not-for-profit society, with the mandate to support and grow the sport of equestrian vaulting (or “vaulting” for short) in British Columbia through education and actively supporting the development of coaches, clubs and vaulters. The EVA of BC operates under its Constitution and By-Laws .
Sport Canada has produced version two of the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) resource paper entitled "Canadian Sport for Life". This paper is a must read for all coaches, upper-level athletes, and anyone else who works closely with them.

Membership in the AEVA is open to anyone who is interested in vaulting; two types of memberships are available:
The Provincial Vaulting Trainer Program has been established since 1995 and is recognized by Horse Council BC, the Alberta Equestrian Federation, and the Saskatchewan Horse Federation.
The Saskatchewan Equestrian Vaulting Association (SEVA) is a non-profit corporation, founded in 2010 by a small group of interested vaulters and parents from the Living Skies Vaulting Club. The SEVA is recognized by the Saskatchewan Horse Federation (SHF) as the Provincial Vaulting Organization for the province.
To meet the minimum annual updating requirements of this certification, trainers must submit proof of their attendance at approved courses/seminars/clinics. All instructional events organized by your provincial vaulting organization are automatically approved for upgrading, as are all such events organized by your provincial equestrian sport organization. All other educational events must be preapproved by the chair of your provincial vaulting organization's Education Committee.

When you want to enter an event like a CVI or world championships, the requirements are quite different than what you would expect at regular Canadian vaulting competitions. You will be entering on behalf of your country so this involves both Equine Canada and the International Equestrian Federation.
