Sport Science Workshop at Trials

Swimming Canada is proud to present a complementary sport science and medicine workshop for coaches and/or their support staff at the 2016 Olympic Trials. 

We understand that many support staff have a keen desire to grow their careers within our sport but lack the resources or time to be exposed to current swim related courses and research.  As such, we are fully committed to supporting your staff by providing an opportunity to learn some key swim related modalities and training principles.   We also are aware of their professional development needs within their respective careers.  We have received full approval for continuing education credits from their regulatory bodies.  Those that are pending approval will be given all the workshop resources to vet the individual process. 

The workshop will be held prior to the start of the Olympic Trials meet on Sunday after the morning practice sessions to minimize the impact on your meet preparation.  We have scheduled it in hopes that you will fully support your staff members' interest in attending and learning.

Please provide the following information to your sport science and sport medicine support staff.   The workshop is open to your coaching staff as well. 

Please RSVP if you or your staff plan to attend.
