Saskatchewan’s high-performance athletes are coming to Mosaic Stadium in Regina on Saturday, Sept. 23 for a Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan (CSCS) holistic athlete combine.
The goal of the day will be for athletes to gain a holistic understanding of their relevant baseline data which can then be used to help ensure the most effective program planning and support is available to help the athletes pursue their performance potential. During the event, athletes will go through physical testing, as well as meet with sport science and medicine service providers from a variety of specialties.
“Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan believes that for athletes to best pursue their goals, whether that be making Team Canada or medalling at an Olympic or Paralympic Games, that they must be supported holistically, both on and off the field of play,” said Brie Jedlic, CSCS Athlete Services Manager. “Hosting this combine provides us with the opportunity to work with athletes and discover the best ways that we can assist them along their athletic journey.”
Attending the combine will be Olympic diver Rylan Wiens, who was recently named to the Canadian squad for the 2023 Pan American Games, as well as Paralympians Marie Wright and Jessica Frotten. They’ll join more than 40 other athletes from multiple different sports, all of whom have either competed for Team Canada on the international sport stage or are working toward that step.
