Supporting Canadian Athletes

Athlete-Centered Sport

In an athlete-centered sport system, the values, programs, policies, resource allocation, and priorities of sport organizations place primary emphasis on consideration of athletes’ needs in a holistic sense, and performance goals within that context.  Those responsible for leadership and decision-making in sport must include the athletes in both defining the needs and goals of the sport or event, and in determining how to meet them. The athlete should be an active subject, not the object of sporting programs.
