Sport Science Community Connections

At the Sylvan Adams Sports Science Institute (SASSI) our research projects, community events, and student education thrive off our connections with community partners. Provincial and National Sport Organizations, as well as a variety of other research institutes and sports teams create our network of coaches, athletes, support staff, and researchers that help us in advancing sports science. These symbiotic relationships allow us to work together to improve elite sport performance through roundtable discussion that dictate the future of sport science, questions about performance asked by coaches and athletes, symposia and lectures on current research, as well as many other outlets.
