SportHealthTM is a comprehensive medical management program directed towards early recognition and treatment of injury and illness as well as the identification of health and safety risks during the training and competitive cycles. This program is made possible only through the support of clinics in interior who are focused on treating athletes and are willing to provide discounted treatment rates to our registered high-performance athletes and coaches. It is a community partnership in support of Canada’s top Olympians, Paralympians and other high performance athletes and coaches who call BC their home.
“PacificSport is excited to have our first formal agreement with Sage Sport Institute to offer discounted support for Canadian Sport Institute nominated athletes and coaches who need treatment in Physiotherapy and Massage Therapy,” states Carolynn Boomer, Executive Director for PacificSport Interior BC. “We are always grateful for the support of all our community partners in the Interior region.”
We are honored to work together in partnership with SAGE to support our community champions!
