Athlete Services

Members of the CSIO performance team.

Eligibility

All Sport Canada AAP carded athletes are eligible to receive individual services from CSIO.

The services we offer carded athletes are in addition to those services we provided targeted athletes through our Integrated Support Team Services and OHPSI Programs.

Note: At this time, Quest for Gold and provincially carded individual athletes are not eligible to receive services from CSIO.

Registration

In order to be eligible to receive access to CSIO and the services we offer, athletes will first need to be registered. To register, please contact Manager, Athlete Services, Danielle Gelineau at athleteservices@csiontario.ca. Once registered, the athlete will be invited to book an Onboarding Session, either via Skype or in person at our office. During this session, the Athlete Services Manager will discuss the services that are available to the AAP Carded Athlete and how CSIO can best support. The benefits of registering with CSIO are outlined below.

Benefits

CANADIAN ATHLETE INSURANCE PROGRAM (CAIP)

All carded athletes are eligible to purchase CAIP at a subsidized rate. CAIP is not a full supplemental medical insurance plan – but a sporting injury insurance plan. It covers both sport related injuries and overuse. Please contact Manager, Athlete Services, Danielle Gelineau at athleteservices@csiontario.ca for more information.

GENERAL FACILITY ACCESS PASS

AAP Carded Athletes living outside the GTA are eligible to be reimbursed for up to $100 towards Facility Access Fees. Please contact Manager, Athlete Services, Danielle Gelineau at athleteservices@csiontario.ca for more information.

ACCESS TO TPASC

All carded athletes also have access to the public gym at TPASC. Once registered with CSIO you may request membership at the main TPASC reception desk located at the South entrance of the building. There is no charge for the membership and it provides access to their strength training area, as well as the free open swim times during the day.
