The Centre for Performance program will consist of 5 three-hour training sessions (15 hours total) per age category, to be held once a month from October to February – Session dates and times with each university partner are below. The cost for the program will be $400 per player. All CP athletes will be provided with a t-shirt, reversible jersey, and a subscription to the PRO ATHLETE app.

Spots are limited to 20 athletes per age group, per each regional pod (120 athletes total per partner), so we encourage interested athletes to register as soon as possible. There may be a waitlist for certain regional pods, so register as soon as possible if interested.
