The Academy for Student Athlete Development program is focused on removing barriers and creating equitable access for athletes looking to pursue aspirations for competitive and sport.
Our model is intended to make high-performance sport training more equitable to aspiring young athletes from a variety of backgrounds with a focus on serving those who face the greatest social and economic barriers to pursuing athletic and academic achievement.
Utilizing an innovative partnership-based framework, ASAD leverages nationally and globally recognized experts in the delivery of the program, ensuring optimal academic, athletic and psychosocial benefits for participating athletes.
Through support from the Sport Canada: Innovation Initiative, ASAD is collaborating with Provincial and National Sport Organizations to build a pathway for Para Athletes to pursue their athletic goals.
