Oval High Performance has built a reputation for providing quality programs and services delivered by knowledgeable coaches, sport scientists and medical practitioners. This reputation is a product of our collaborative approach, track record of developing athletes and our ability to provide comprehensive solutions to challenges faced by many associations and teams.

Oval High Performance Practitioners collaborate as part of a larger integrated support team (IST).  We regularly deliver customized educational seminars and hands on practical workshops to local, provincial and national sport organizations. An objective of these sessions is to help provide athletes with the physical foundation, performance mindset, technical sport skills and nutritional knowledge necessary to successfully and seamlessly make the jump to a national team programs whether in the lower mainland or elsewhere in Canada.

After having delivered live workshops and seminars to 1000+ athletes, our local, provincial and national program clients expressed a need for a performance education solution that was accessible, cost effective, customizable and that could be consistently delivered year over year.

Oval High Performance now offers a customizable webinar solution delivered by the same integrated support team that supports Canadian national team athletes and Olympians under the Oval roof.  This team consists of industry leading and experienced strength and conditioning coaches, sport dietitians, sport psychologists, sport scientists and allied health professionals who are committed to help maximize an athlete’s or team’s performance in their sport.
