The Canadian Sport Institute Pacific’s Athlete Advance returns in 2017 with double the excitement of previous years. For the first time, there will be two events: one each in Vancouver and Victoria.

The Athlete Advance is designed to help educate and inspire British Columbia’s future and current Olympic, Paralympic, and World Championship athletes in their quest for podium performances. Athletes will have the chance to attend a full day of interactive workshops and seminars presented by leading experts in their respective fields.

On March 18, the Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre at the University of British Columbia’s Point Grey campus will host CSI Pacific’s Vancouver edition of the Athlete Advance. Athletes will have the opportunity to learn about Scholarship and University Commitment Navigation; Mental Performance; Transferable Skills; and Recovery.

The event will be keynoted by former Vancouver Whitecaps FC team captain Jay DeMerit. The United States international represented his country at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and was Whitecaps FC's first signing after joining Major League Soccer in 2010. The native of Green Bay, Wisconsin became Whitecaps FC's inaugural MLS captain, leading the club for four seasons before retiring in 2014.

Registration is now open for the 2017 Athlete Advances and is limited to Canadian Sport Institute Pacific or PacificSport registered athletes.
