Calls for applications that precede major and developmental Games selections are managed by the organizing committees and will vary in length of time in advance of the specific Game. SPC establishes internal member deadlines for application submission to meet organizing committee criteria.
SPC members are electronically notified directly of all Calls for Applications. Calls for Applications are also available to members on the SPC website when a member has logged in.
SPC members who are in the Credential Program and have maintained an Active status are considered for Games selection.
Applications are submitted to Sport Physiotherapy Canada by the specified deadline date. Late applications are not considered. The applicant’s membership status and eligibility as per the selection policy are checked.
The Sport Physiotherapy Canada Selection Team (comprised of 3-5 Diploma holders working independently) is forwarded all applicants’ biographical sketches and submitted applications for ranking. The ranking is based on a pre-established National selection criteria grid and is applied equally to all applicants.
Each Selection Team member follows the established grid to score the applicants. Their resulting scores are submitted to the Selection Team Leader who compiles all scores to determine the overall rankings. These are sent to the SPC National Office.
SPC National Office provides the names in ranked order to the Games Organizing Committee based on their specific guidelines.
Final selection is made by the Games organizers. They decide which and how many of the ranked candidates will be offered positions on the medical team. The Games organizers are responsible for notifying the selected individuals and SPC of their decision. SPC will notify the unsuccessful applicants before announcing publicly the names of selected members.
Games organizers are responsible for all further communication with the successful candidates.
