It gives athletes access to facilities and sport science staff and presents opportunities for training alongside the nation’s best swimmers, rowers, cyclists and track and field athletes. It is located in the Victoria Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre and established in partnership with the Government of Canada, City of Victoria, 94 Forward, Canadian Sport Institute Pacific, Saanich Commonwealth Place and Pacific Institute of Sport Excellence.
