Two experts from Grand INSEP Network visit Montreal

INS Québec welcomed two experts from Grand INSEP last week as part of the collaboration agreement of the two sports institutes.

Marian Malaquin, Senior Manager of the Centre de ressources d’expertise et de performance sportives (CREPS) Boulouris and Ahcene Kerrou, Academic assistant, High Performance division, Institut national du sport, de l’expertise et de la performance (INSEP), took part in the sport studies provincial meeting and met various INS Québec partners.

The main players of the Quebec sports community gathered at the sports studies provincial meeting also attended a presentation given by Mr. Malaquin and Mr. Kerrou on the “double project” of the French sports system. They also met INS Québec partners Alliance Sport-Études, le Canadian Olympic Committee and the Ministère de l’éducation et de l’enseignement supérieur.

It was very interesting to discover this “ double project,” which targets both the athletic and academic development of athletes. Young athletes who reside on sports campuses, also receive their schooling there. Canadian and Quebec sports systems opting for a different approach were given the example of Waterpolo Canada whose training schedules for national teams are made according to the school schedules of each athlete. A difficult task, but a necessary one for the general well-being of athletes.

On April 23, 2018, INS Québec welcomed a French delegation, along with French Sports Minister Laura Flessel. The culminating point of this visit was the signature of the new collaboration agreement between INSEP and INS Québec. This agreement focuses on, among other things, the exchange of expertise in high-performance sports and high-performance sports medicine.

INSEP is a long-standing partner of INS Québec and the new agreement is a renewal of both institutes’ willingness to collaborate.
