Performance Services is the foremost pillar of service at the CSCC, partnering worldleading service providers and National Sport Organizations to deliver targeted training and support services for high performance athletes and their teams. We focus on crucial areas of performance including: Sport Medicine, Sport Science, Strength and Conditioning, Sport Psychology, Biomechanics, and Nutrition. Our aim is always to provide an integrated and supportive environment in which anything is possible.
Under the CSCC Performance Service leadership team, athletes and coaches work with over 75 sport experts who operate as Integrated Support Teams (IST). Optimal individualized and team training and recovery programs are generated in a proactive environment that is informed by the latest technological and scientific research, developments and equipment.
Much of our sport science takes place in the Human Performance Lab (HPL), the largest facility of its kind in Canada, where every aspect of the athletes’ physical state and athletic performance can be tested, monitored and improved, from their technical efficiency to their physiology to the effect of environmental changes.
As we move forward, we seek to further build on our existing close relationships with partnered facilities, particularly around program development and management at the new Canadian Winter Sport Institute, currently under construction at Canada Olympic Park and due to be completed in 2012.
