SFU STUDY: RELATIVE ENERGY DEFICIENCY IN SPORT & THE FEMALE ATHLETE TRIAD

Simon Fraser University is offering an online education workshop, which can be used for NCCP credits, on Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S) and the Female Athlete Triad as part of a study.

If you are interested in participating in the study, please contact Braeden Charlton at Braeden_charlton@sfu.ca.

 


 

Event: Relative Energy Deficiency In Sport (RED-S): How it can impact all sports and all athletes

Overview:

WHAT IS RED-S?

In 2014, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) convened a group of experts to address and update the topic of the female athlete triad (Triad). A critical review of the evolution of the body of science that has been published since the origin of the Triad in 1972 found that the syndrome is much broader than originally thought. In response to this discovery, the IOC introduced a broader, more comprehensive term known as ‘Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport’ or RED-S.

Overview:  Canadian Sport Institute Pacific’s (CSI Pacific) is happy to announce that they have made their Sport Performance Speaker Series free to the general public. Previously limited to only targeted, high performance athletes and coaches, CSI Pacific has opened the education program up to anyone with an interest in cutting edge sport science, practical solutions to performance barriers, and thoughtful conversations with Canada’s best athletes.

Having recently completed a re-design of their Speaker Series On-Demand webpage (http://www.csipacific.ca/athletes/sport-education/on-demand/), CSI Pacific chose to allow access to anyone interested in high performance sport in Canada to find out more via a collection of webinars and recorded events. Topics and seminars are across eight key disciplines:

  • Coaching
  • Life Services
  • Medical Sciences
  • Mental Performance
  • Nutrition
  • Performance Analysis
  • Physiology
  • Strength & Conditioning

Webinars and recordings range from a deep-dive into a featured topic (e.g. Nutrition) to view unique presentation material, all of which provide insight about elite sport in Canada.
