Ever Wonder If YOU Could Be An Olympian / Paralympian?
CSI Pacific PODIUM SEARCH™ is an athlete identification and standardized fitness testing program for able-bodied and para-athletes. Athletes participate in a series of basic field tests that measure anthropometry (height/arm span/weight), power, strength, speed, and endurance. The data gathered offers insight for individual athlete fitness evaluation and monitoring, and can be compared across sports and/or sport specific athlete development benchmarks. Athletes may have the opportunity to be invited for further sport specific assessments if they meet PSO/NSO athlete identification benchmarks.
Lead by Canadian Sport Institute Pacific staff and members of partnering PSO and NSO sport organizations, PODIUM SEARCH supports the identification and development of athletes by providing them with exposure to a high performance environment and basic field-testing results. PODIUM SEARCH also creates awareness for national and provincial sport organizations’ athlete identification programs by helping athletes identify transferable talents from other sports.
PODIUM SEARCH™ Field Tests include:
- Anthropometry (Height, Arm span, Weight)
- Power – Vertical Jump
- Speed – 10m / 30m running sprint (10m / 20m wheelchair sprint where appropriate)
