The Canadian Sport Institute (CSI), through a partnership with the Province of BC, ViaSport the network of PacificSport Centers and Triathlon BC, collaborate to deliver value added services to springboard qualified BC athletes on to Triathlon Canada’s National Team, and ultimately, the world’s top podiums.
Through this unique partnership, Triathlon BC is fortunate to be designated as an Integrated Performance Sport (IPS) within the Enhanced Excellence program, receiving high performance funding to ensure athletes and coaches have every advantage to win medals for Canada. The partners within the IPS work jointly to raise the bar in high performance sport delivery, encourage sport excellence and increase podium performances in communities across British Columbia and Canada.
