Canadian Sport Institute & PacificSport Athlete and Coach Registration
The Canadian Sport Institute Pacific, through a partnership with the Province of British Columbia, viaSport, the network of PacificSport centres, and Swim BC, delivers programs and services that help to place BC athletes onto national teams, ensuring athletes and coaches have every advantage to win medals for Canada. Swim BC nominates provincial team athletes and their coaches for consideration by this partnership to receive these enhanced programs and services.
Commonly referred to as “Provincial Carding,” this is now known as Canadian Sport Institute & PacificSport Athlete and Coach Registration, and provides senior international-level athletes with funding and resources to pursue excellence.
An outline of athlete and coach programs and services can be found here.
Nominations may be made based on the following criteria:
- CSI-Pacific Approved Criteria
- Swim BC Athlete / Coach Application Process
- Approved carding nomination list
Notification letters are sent out to approved swimmers and coaches in early December, informing them of their acceptance into the program, along with the process for them to register with their appointed centre. Athletes and coaches must register with their local centre to initiate their access to programs and services.
Any enquiries regarding the selection criteria can be made to the Swim BC Performance Director or designate.
Swim BC gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
