As cited in the 2010 report from the Canadian Sports Centre, Sports Schools in Canada: The Future is Here, it is evident that there is a growing need for schools to accommodate committed athletes. 


They cite five key factors for a successful sports program model:


   1. Quality human resources


   2. Connections – partnerships


   3. Proximity to world class facilities or centres of excellence


   4. Flexible educational requirements


   5. Integration with “traditional stream” students
