Our focus is the interconnected relationship between sport and health. We engage in academic and practical research related to the physical, mental and social components of well-being.

Our Mandate: Building upon Saint Mary’s University’s tradition of sporting excellence The Centre for the Study of Sport and Health will extend the growing research competence in the area of sport and health that already exists at Saint Mary’s University. Located in the Homburg Centre for Health and Wellness the CSSH is ideally situated to promote scholarly research on sport, health and wellness issues on campus and in the larger community.  Our objective is to establish the CSSH as an internationally-recognized centre of excellence in sport and health studies.
