On-demand Services

These services are intended for athletes in the high-performance sport process, as well as for professional and semi-professional clients.

You benefit from a fully customized service offering, based on an assessment of your specific needs.

  • Following an analysis of your needs during a preliminary meeting, our team of experts will propose a package of services specifically adapted to your sporting reality, in line with the latest developments in the field.
  • By centralizing your services at the Institut national du sport du Québec, you benefit from the expertise of our renowned interdisciplinary specialists, who have access to cutting-edge technologies in world-class facilities.
  • Following the services we offer, we will provide you with a variety of relevant documents to help you make the most of your project.



The experience and expertise of INS Québec staff guarantees that when physical tests are performed, they are done according to a rigorous protocol that ensures the accuracy and reliability of results.


In a physical assessment context, the selection and assessment protocols are designed to ensure that the results are easy to reproduce when the test is repeated under the same conditions, regardless of which specialist is subsequently called upon to repeat the test. This makes it possible to assess improvement or lack of progress for each variable evaluated.


The Institute is committed to the efficient planning and delivery of your services, guaranteeing rigorous, realistic and appropriate intervention planning.

INS Québec reserves the right to accept only one-time activities for which:

  • 1) The quality is sufficiently high;
  • 2) The safety of the participants is assured;
  • 3) The proposed tests are appropriate, meet the needs of the sport, and the required material and human resources are available.

Applicants will be invited to consult specialists from INS Québec’s medical or scientific teams when developing or reviewing their applications, to assess them in terms of quality, safety, feasibility and scientific merit.

Services on Demand

Many INS Québec services are available on demand.

These range from medical-scientific assessments (medical pre-season, functional assessment, physical test, VO2Max, etc.) to workshops and conferences (nutrition, mental preparation, physical preparation, etc.). Also, the Institute has rooms available for meetings and events, as well as training facilities.
