WHAT IS OHPSI?

The Ontario High Performance Sport Initiative, or OHPSI program was designed to support 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 goal of the OHPSI program 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 Team Ontario program will act as a support system for the province’s top athletes identified in the OHPSI program by providing an athlete kit, training camp opportunities, competitive opportunities, competition based funding, sport science/sport medicine support, and coach support.  Athletes will be given the opportunity to interact, and train with other top athletes within their event group across the province in training camp environments designed to engage and build relationships. 

WHO CAN APPLY?

The OHPSI program is available to all AO members, however there are some age restrictions, and restrictions on athletes who have or are nationally carded athletes under the Athletics Canada CAAP program. See below for an eligibility checklist.
