Sport Solution is a program of AthletesCAN, the association of Canada’s national team athletes. The Program Managers for the Sport Solution program are law students who can provide athletes with legal information and resources on: sport dispute resolution procedures, athlete agreements and contracts, selection and discipline procedures in sport, and related legal and policy issues.
The Sport Solution Program Managers are not lawyers, and they cannot provide legal advice or opinion. AthletesCAN respects an individual’s privacy and any personal or confidential information that is provided to the Sport Solution will be used solely to assist the athlete with their issue or concern, and will not be shared with others without the athlete’s consent.
