TEAMS

The competition is open to undergrad students at Canadian universities and is recognized as the largest of its kind in Canada. Its main purpose is to bridge the gap between the practice of kinesiology and academic worlds, which ultimately enriches students, professors, researchers and practising kinesiologists. Up to 24 teams from provinces throughout the country participate in the week-long event. The competition offers participants great opportunities to meet new people and network with practising Kinesiologists, academics, researchers and prominent business people attending the competition either as judges or sponsors.

A team is to include three students from the same university, one professor (acting as a mentor/coach), one practising Kinesiologist and one researcher (acting as consultants). The practising Kinesiologist and researcher may be different from case to case. Only practiciting Kinesiologists need to be currently affiated to the CKA and PKA.

To register a team, you must register:

  • three (3) students, one prof (mentor), one researcher and one practicing Kinesiologists (consultants). Although the researcher and practising Kinesiologists may change from case to case, your original registration must include one of each.
  • a student is one currently in its 3rd or 4th year attending an undergraduate degree in a kinesiology, human kinetics or physical activity university program.

Qualifying teams: From all registered teams received by November 10, 24 teams will be selected by the jury in priority according to these criteria, provided all teams include the required individuals: one team per province, one team per university and then the best of the remaining teams.
