The Canadian Sport Psychology Association (CSPA) is an organization devoted to applied sport psychology. Applied sport psychology involves facilitating the development of mental and emotional skills, techniques, attitudes, perspectives, and processes that lead to performance enhancement and positive personal development. The CSPA logo embodies the yin-yang symbol to reflect our vision and appreciation of the physical and psychosocial dimensions of well-being and performance as well as the holistic development of individuals who are not just "athletes" performing in sport but "persons" performing in life. The CSPA (a) recognizes those individuals from various backgrounds who have the necessary competencies to deliver applied sport psychology services in Canada and (b) provides mentoring and supervision opportunities to students and young professionals striving to develop such competencies. The CSPA is comprised of both mental performance consultants and registered psychologists and asks its members to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with their training and qualifications.
