Types of Membership
The CSPA welcomes three types of membership:
CSPA Professional Member
CSPA Professional Members are individuals who meet the CSPA Membership Requirements. As well, they have professional liability insurance either through the CSPA (see Insurance for summary of insurance plan available and insurance application form) or another organization offering a $2,000,000 coverage plan.
Student members are students or young professionals who have an interest in applied sport psychology and who may be training towards achieving the membership requirements with the CSPA. A student can maintain student membership up to 1 year post graduation. After that time period, in order to maintain membership status with the CSPA the student member must apply to be a professional member.
Associate members are individuals who meet the CSPA Membership requirements who temporarily are not practicing, and did not purchase professional liability insurance at the time their membership was approved for reasons of maternity leave and/or for other personal reasons. Once they resume their practice and secure a minimum of $2,000,000 in professional liability insurance, they will be become a Professional Member. A member can maintain associate member status for a maximum of 3 years.
