Further to the announcement of the cancellation of the Case Competition, we have received feedback from some teams. We have an alternative solution! 

The CKA will host a ONE CASE CHALLENGE on Nov. 27th 2021 at 16hET.

There will be 4 teams taking on this challenge!

The Case Competition is changed to a One Case Challenge. We believe that this challenge will help reach the initial objectives, and in addition, it will give other students, profs etc a chance to see what it's all about, what is the commitment and what to expect. Hopefully, it will convince others to register for next year.

The case will be released on Wed. Nov. 24 2021 at 11hET.
Teams will have to submit their case solutions by Nov. 27 at 11hET.
Teams will have to make a "Live" presentation on Nov. 27 at 16hET...
Same rules...5-minute presentation via zoom...

2021 CANCELLED....See you in 2022!

It is with regret that the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance must cancel the 2021 Kin Case Competition due to insufficient number of registered teams.

Join us from Nov. 19 to 28 2021 
at the 1st national virtual kinesiology event
Kin Case Competition!

The Kinesiology Case Competition is a national competition for students in the third and fourth years of Canadian university kinesiology, human kinetics and physical activity programs.

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 businesspeople attending the competition either as judges or sponsors. Participants are encouraged to develop cases and then present and defend them. Most importantly, teams should have fun!

The format is a round-robin tournament consisting of four kinesiology cases. Three of these cases are live presentations about a real-life kinesiology-related challenge. With up to 24 hours (decreasing time per round) to prepare, teams of three students analyze and evaluate unpublished cases using the skills, knowledge and experience they have acquired from their respective kinesiology curriculums. They will have to consult with at least one researcher and one practising Kinesiologist. Students create a presentation that demonstrates their ability to dig into the problem and develop a feasible solution. A panel of judges grade the presentations according to a set list of criteria, using their unique backgrounds, experience and perspectives to critically assess the participants’ presentations. Winners receive bursaries and recognition from the kinesiology community.

Spread the news!
Students are encouraged to participate. Registration includes access to the KinCanConference on Nov. 27 & 28.
