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.
