Ontario High-Performance Sport Initiative
CSIO support for high-performance curling
About the Ontario High-Performance Sport Initiative (OHPSI)
The Ontario Curling Council has been a proud member of the Ontario High Performance Sport Initiative (OHPSI), operated by the Canadian Sport Institute of Ontario, since 2017.
Designed in 2010, the Ontario High Performance Sport Initiative (OHPSI) supports a comprehensive provincial high performance sport system that allows for sustained success of athletes and coaches at the very highest levels of international sport.
The overarching objective of the OHPSI is to identify and support Ontario athletes who are best capable of achieving future international success on senior national teams in targeted winter and summer Olympic/Paralympic and Pan/Para Pan-Am Games sports.
The program also aims to build robust and aligned relationships across Provincial and National Sport Organizations (PSOs and NSOs), ensuring efficient and appropriate use of system resources, to enhance opportunities for athletes and coaches to train and compete across the full Long Term Athlete Development pathway right here in Ontario. This approach is intimately tied and aligned to Own the Podium’s vision and strategy to optimize a targeted approach to increasing Canada’s potential for future international podium performances.
Participation in the OHPSI program affords the Ontario Curling Council additional resources to support coaching and technical leadership, access to sport science/sport medicine professionals, assistance with program development and planning, and supporting the daily training environment and competition aspirations of program athletes.
The Ontario Curling Council values our partnership with the CSIO through the OHPSI.
