What is Elevate?

Launched in 2019, Elevate is a series of Athlete and Coach Symposiums across the PacificSport Vancouver Island region focusing on Holistic Education, Training Methods, Sport Health, Athlete Performance, and more!

Year-to-year the Elevate symposiums travel to different areas highlighting local sport organizations, local coaches, local partners, and more from across the region.

Our inaugral Elevate events in 2019 were hosted in Nanaimo and Campbell River, and due to Covid-19 are being hosted online in 2020.

Please see below for our upcoming events!

PacificSport Vancouver Island is taking our Elevate Symposium online as we host an Athlete and Coach Speaker Series! We understand in this challenging time that access, motivation, or availability can become difficult and as a result athletic training and development may suffer. In order to support our athlete community we will be offering this series of online presentations and interviews to the sporting community, designed to inspire and create an educational platform!
