In addition to working with podium potential athletes, we provide support to close to 20 different sport organizations in the development of the next generation of Olympians and Paralympians
* CSI Calgary Cycling
We continue to offer year-round programming for over 60 cyclists of all ages and abilities ranging from youth development to national team and Olympic/Paralympic cyclists.
Top results include newly crowned World champion Mike Sametz in para-cycling men’s C3 and Sara Poidevin who won the U23 ITT Canadian Championships.

Biathlon athlete Megan Bankes, who receives support through our Talent Lab, made history this year becoming the first Canadian female to win the gold medal at the Biathlon Junior World Championships.
* Game Plan YYC Summit
On June 22, the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary hosted the first ever Game Plan YYC Summit for Alberta athletes with the theme of Side Hustle. The summit was full day of presentations for athletes on topics covering Effective Communication, Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship and Positive Self Coaching. More than 70 athletes registered to the Summit.
