Canada Games Sport Physiotherapy Leadership Program

Athlete health is a dynamic, expanding area of sport. As our understanding of what athlete health evolves, so too, do the opportunities for health care providers to make positive contributions, with a variety of roles emerging as a result. The Canada Games Council, Niagara Canada Games 2022 Committee, and Dr. Tracy Blake, PT PhD are excited to announce the launch of the Canada Games Sport Physiotherapy Leadership Program (CGSPLP). This program will give TWO physiotherapists of Black and/or Indigenous ancestry the chance to explore sport physiotherapy and athlete health leadership through the Canada Games experience.
