An athlete-only Co-op discussion will be running for those in preparation for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. These calls are designed to help athletes connect with peers and gain new insight, perspective and support among those who share challenges. They are based off the COC CO-OP program, which has helped more than 500 sport professionals. Talks are always confidential to promote open (even difficult) topics, which you are encouraged to bring up. Please visit our community resource to register.
The Game Plan team has developed a private Facebook Community: Game Plan’s 2020 Virtual Team | Équipe virtuelle de Plan de match pour 2020 where you can connect with other Olympians, Paralympians, 2020 hopefuls, and other athletes during the COVID-19. You can share tips, workouts, recipes, and connect with one another. The idea is to create a virtual athlete to athlete support group. Game Plan will also bring in experts to answer questions and post webinars.
