BCS and CSI - Pacific partner up for PODIUM SEARCH

September 20, 2014

The Canadian Sport Institute Pacific (CSI Pacific) is pleased to confirm that the date for the
next PODIUM SEARCH™ event is September 20, 2014 in Whistler, B.C.

PODIUM SEARCH™ is a free one-day athlete identification camp designed to test athletes’
capacity for sport performance at its highest level. Each PODIUM SEARCH™ participant will go
through a set of basic physiological and anthropometric tests, plus one or two sport-specific
tests, administered by CSI Pacific staff to find out how they measure up to National Team
standards. All participants will receive their results within 10 days of the camp. On-line
registration for the event is now available here.

CSI Pacific invites a member of your HP sport leadership team (HP coach, and/or High
Performance staff member) to join our CSI Pacific staff to observe, and/or participate with the
testing with the intent of identifying future High Performance athletes for your sport.
