SportHealth Anita Patrick Bursary Logo

For Sport Medicine & Sport Science Practitioners only.

PacificSport interior BC acknowledges the significant contribution of the late Anita Patrick, Sport Massage Therapist. Her dedication to sport and care of high performance athletes was unprecedented. Anita was a Sport Massage Therapist in Kamloops and was a team therapist for the Canadian Rowing Team, Sprint Canoe/Kayak and Whitewater Canoe/Kayak Teams. She was selected to provide her expertise at 4 Olympic Games (1988, 1992, 1996 and 2000).

To honour the contributions made by Anita Patrick, PacificSport will provide financial assistance to a sport medicine or sport science practitioner.  The purpose of this award is to encourage sport medicine and sport science practitioners to further their education (see criteria list below).  Specifically, the financial assistance is provided to help offset travel expenses, exam fees, and other costs that may be incurred.  Certification courses will normally be given higher priority for consideration than professional development opportunities.

Practitioners may only apply once during the Regional Centre’s fiscal year (April 1 – March 31).

Applications are to be submitted to the PacificSport Regional Sport Interior BC Centre's Executive Director, Carolynn Boomer, at cboomer@pacificsport.com. Selection of award recipients will be based on the criteria listed on the application form.

If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact PacificSport Interior BC at (250) 828-3344.
