Canadian Sport Institute Pacific invites athletes between the ages of 14 and 22 to test their capacity for sport performance at PODIUM SEARCH on Saturday, September 20th, at 10:30 am at the Whistler Athletes Centre. This is the second time that this event will be hosted in Whistler. Those who perform exceedingly well may be contacted for further assessment and an offer to enroll in one of the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific's Sport Programs.
PODIUM SEARCH is a free, half-day athlete identification camp offering athletes basic physiological field testing and anthropometric test results to measure how they stack up against National Team standards. Assessments include the vertical jump test, medicine ball throw, and 45 metre sprint among other field tests in use by National Team programs. Each participant will walk away with a copy of their test scores and an understanding of what it takes to become part of Canada's sporting elite.
In addition to the testing events, athletes will also have the chance to hear from keynote speaker Julia Murray, Olympian and 2011 World Silver Medallist in Ski Cross.
