Sport Physiotherapy Canada recognizes Summer and Winter Olympics, Summer and Winter Paralympics, Pan-American, and Commonwealth Games as Major Games. SPC recognizes FISU Games and Jeux de la Francophonie as Developmental Games.
Effective May 2009, SPC removed the “2 in 6” rule criteria for members responding for Games calls for application.
SPC Diploma Credential holders are eligible to apply for consideration in all Major and Developmental Games. All applications are reviewed and independently scored by Sport Physiotherapy Canada’s Selections Committee before being submitted for consideration for the Core Medical Team positions.
SPC Certificate Credential holders are eligible for consideration in certain Games as designated. Certificate holder eligibility for a particular Game is noted specifically in the formal Call for Applications. Again, all applications are reviewed and scored before the submission is made by the SPC Selection Committee to the Games organizing committee.
SPC members who do not hold any SPC Credentials (Certificate or Diploma) are NOT considered by the Selections Committee for any Games consideration.
Calls for Applications to Games are announced via the Sport Physiotherapy E-Blast system and posted on our website. Games applications are time sensitive and often our Selections Committee is required to work under tight timelines. Late applications, unfortunately are not eligible for consideration by the Committee.
