At Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba, our mission is to support high performance athletes in their pursuit of performance and personal excellence. The programs and services provided for athletes are designed to enhance their preparation for national and international competition. CSCM provides services and programs for individual athletes and training groups at different levels depending on the athlete’s achievements.

Are you a visiting Athlete?
Please note that available support for visiting athletes differs from support listed above. Carded Athletes travelling to Winnipeg for training or competition who wish to access services during their stay should contact CSCM upon arrival by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss available support.
Registering with CSCM
To be considered for access to CSCM services, athletes must be nominated by their provincial and/or national sport governing body. Each year an athlete must complete an intake (or retake) interview and provide up to date information for the database. Intake interviews can be arranged by the coach for a group session or delivered as a one on one session for identified athletes.

Coverage of Sport Medicine Expenses
Athletes are reminded to make use of their provincial health care and personal insurance prior to CAIP & CSCM support.
Initial appointments with external providers are to be arranged through CSCM. This ensures the provider is aware the athlete is a CSCM athlete and therefore eligible for the preferred rate.
Individual Athletes: Financial support for sport medicine will be put towards the purchase of Canadian Athlete Insurance Program (CAIP) coverage at the level chosen by the athlete. Should the athlete require, or desire, a level which costs more than the support from CSCM, they will be responsible for paying the difference.
Should CAIP not be conducive to your situation, direct financial support from CSCM is available on a case-by-case basis.
Training Group Athletes: Please contact your coach or CSCM for information.
Invoices received at the CSCM office for services that have not been pre-approved will be returned to the service provider and are the responsibility of the athlete.
Parameters of Service Access
The limits on service access may change without notice. Changes may be necessary based on the remaining budget as the year progresses. Services may have to be limited, and in rare cases services may be extended beyond the limits that are set. Athletes are expected to exhaust any individual insurance coverage they may have before using the CAIP insurance offered by the CSCM.
Evaluation of Services
Please note that servicing and support are fluid and as such CSCM welcomes feedback regarding support and providers.

The Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba acknowledges that our offices are situated on Treaty 1 Land, the original lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Ojibway-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
The Treaties made on these territories are respected by all those who work at CSCM. We acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past that were made. In a spirit of collaboration and reconciliation, we dedicate ourselves to continually move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities for ongoing education and learning.
We understand that acknowledging this truth, though important, is only a small part in cultivating the strong relationships we strive to build and maintain with Indigenous communities. We continue to work towards this, with particular attention being paid to the sport specific calls to action #87-91 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
We recognize we are not the first to live on this land, and thank these Nations for allowing us access to their land and water.
