About Canadian Sport School
High school athletes typically struggle to manage their time, commitments and demands of being a teenager along with the expectations of being a high performance athlete striving for excellence. Life for a young athlete requires balancing entire days at high school with afternoons, evenings and weekends spent training and competing. This often leaves inadequate time for homework completion, rest, recovery and sleep which ultimately leads to a decrease in performance both in the classroom, on the playing field or in athletes’ optimal health.
The Canadian Sport Institute Pacific has created a program to help alleviate these pressures and ensure that our future Olympians and National Team members have all the skills and resources needed to continue to progress as competitive athletes in the performance pathway, while excelling both on the playing field and in the classroom. The Canadian Sport School provides an opportunity for secondary school athletes to use school hours and to earn academic credit for:
- Physical training through the IGNITE™ Athlete Development Program – Developing athleticism and new skills in the following areas; Strength Training, Sprint Training and basic gymnastics movements.
- Independent Study Blocks – Daily time for homework completion, quiet study or online learning.
- Sport Performance Seminars – Weekly seminars in the areas of high performance will support the students’ athletic knowledge and development towards success.
