About Olympic Education
The Olympic philosophy of education is about a balance of intellectual instruction, cultural development and physical education. Olympic Education is based on the concept, Olympism, which blends sport with culture and education. Through values-based learning, participants are encouraged to experience life values such as excellence, respect and friendship, while developing a balanced body and mind.
With the vision of inspiring the next generation of Canadians through the legacy of Team Canada and the Olympic Games, the Canadian Olympic Committee is known as a leader in Olympic Education offering free, world-class programs such as The Canadian Olympic School Program (COSP) and Team Canada Champion Chats (TCCC).
The Canadian Olympic School Program
The COSP offers over 100 free, online resources designed to inspire and challenge students to integrate the Olympic Spirit in their daily lives. Applicable to all grade levels, from elementary to high school, the COSP resources are pedagogically sound, written by teachers, for an effortless implementation in all learning and sport environments.
Team Canada Champion Chats
Hosted by the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee, and Classroom Champions, TCCC connects Canadian students with Team Canada Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Through live discussions and learning programs, students are empowered to embrace and take on challenges, prioritize mental health, achieve goals, and ultimately, be a champion in their school, home, and community.
