Coaching Association of Canada

Research Support Requests

As part of its research strategy, the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) works closely with researchers in Canada and various partners to value, leverage, and contribute to the expansion of sport and coaching science in Canada. Over the years, the organization has partnered with various stakeholders to conduct or find participants for internal and external research projects, to offer peer-reviewed communications opportunities and letters of support for researchers to funding agencies.

Possible Research Support Options

  • The CAC as a partner in a research project (may require a formal agreement)
  • Conduct research on the CAC or on CAC’s programs and policies (may require a formal agreement)
  • Connection to a specific partner or portfolio lead (requires contact approval)
  • Access a pool of external jury members (Masters, Ph.D, calls for research proposals)
  • Research participants for your projects through the CAC's communication channels (requires strong alignment with Sport Coaching Research)
