"The Active Circle is a family, I feel like I'm part of something. I feel really supported in the work that I do."

Evan Chamakese, Pelican Lake First Nation

The Canadian Sport Institute Calgary is proud to announce their first ever Next One summer camps. Two camp sessions are being offered, taking place from 9am to 4pm during the weeks of July 20-25 and August 10-14, 2015. The camps are an amazing opportunity for youth who are already involved in sport and want to stay active during the summer to gain valuable insight into the world of high performance sport.

Next One is designed for athletes age 13 to 18 who are already enrolled in a sport to further their training base and knowledge of sport. The program is open to athletes from any sport, and aims to advance athletes' fitness, strength, and mental components. Attendees will also be given an Under Armour t-shirt to be worn while working out in the CSIC's high performance facilities at Canada Olympic Park.

The camp design is in line with the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model set out by the Canadian Sport for Life organization. The LTAD outlines the skills and training that developing athletes need to do at various stages in their lives in order to reach their full athletic potential. Through the Next One program, athletes will be encouraged to develop skills that are applicable to more than one sport, while having fun and working out with like-minded individuals. The chance to train in the same facility as many of Canada's Olympians and professional athletes is a bonus that goes along with the camp.

The trained CSIC staff will lead the camp's components, which include strength and cardiovascular training as well as classroom sessions in the fields of sport psychology and nutrition. Additionally, there will be motivational talks by Olympians who train at the CSIC with the chance for the attendees to learn from question and answer periods. Of course, because this is a sports camp, there will be a ton of fun for everyone involved!
