Repsol Sport Centre – Sport Partners

Repsol Sport Centre is home to 35 Clubs that train and compete within the facility. These Clubs, or Sport Partners, represent 11 Umbrella Organizations including Artistic Swimming, Athletics, Basketball, Diving, Fencing, Field Hockey, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Soccer, Swimming, Volleyball and Water Polo. As Partners, Repsol Sport Centre plays a vital role in the success of each Club, and, in turn, the Clubs play a role in the overall success of the Centre. Barriers to entry in sport are varied and often lead to exclusion. For those with disabilities, these challenges are often magnified.

Repsol Sport Centre’s Sport Partner Criteria has been created in alignment with our Dual Mandate, Mission, Vision and Values. The Sport Partner criteria was created for the purpose of supporting clubs that share the same passion for training and competition along Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model. The criteria is based on a rewards system that values the investment that all partners make in the development of their athletes.

The following Sport Partners offer adapted specific programming (please refer to club website for full program details):

Nose Creek Swim Association: Features a para-swimming program where swimmers with a physical disability are accepted, classified, and integrated into NCSA’s program.

Calgary Track and Field Club (CALTAF): Features a para-athletics division within. The Power Speed/Distance/Throws/Jumps para-athletics group strives to bring out the best in every athlete.
