Athletics NS Sport Science Program

Date: 
Tuesday, 2017, December 12 - 1:15pm

Athletics NS, in conjunction with the Canadian Sport Center Atlantic, will be offering sport science services to Midget, Youth and Junior aged athletes. This is an exciting opportunity for athletes, coaches and clubs to work with CSCA staff to aid in the development of Athletics in Nova Scotia. The initiation of this program comes as part of a restructuring of resources. The previous resources available through the Canada Games Funding Program are being redistributed and this is one of the new programs that will be initiated in its place. Over the coming years, this program will likely be expanded to include other initiatives from the new NS Performance Pathway Initiative (NSPPI).

The following criteria must be met to be eligible for this program.

1)     Meet the Sport Science Group Standards (shown below). These are based of performances at your respective age groups national championships AND/OR

2)     Placed in the Top 5 at your respective Age Group National Competition (National Legion Championships, National Junior Championships) AND

3)     Your coach must be in support of this initiative and be able and willing to attend some of the training sessions with you, as this will be a working relationship with the CSCA staff.

The Sport Science program will primarily consist of strength training, with other services such as mental performance and nutritional services added at a later date. In most cases, these will likely be in a group setting and in a central location.

Location: The strength training portion of the program will be available in 3 different locations: 1) Acadia University 2) Canada Games Center (CSCA Atlantic) 3) STFX University.

Dates: January 8th until April 1st (This could be extended but will not be determined until the program is up and running.
