RESEARCH

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
