Organising the future of SCSC
A message from the president was sent on August 14, 2019 to all SCSC members in view of reorganising the SCSC.
With his message the members of the SCSC were asked to vote on three subjects, namely 1) acceptance of a general assembly vote by electronic means, 2) financial support of 20'000CHF to the project of the 6th year of studies at the university hospital in Lausanne, and 3) acceptance of a revision of the SCSC statutes.

Voting result:  All three subjects were accepted with an over 2/3 majority of the entire SCSC membership.

Winter Youth Olympic Games
January 9 - 23, 2020    


Winter Youth Olympic Games    -     Info and Registration                                           Schedule and Distibution of Shifts

In January next year Switzerland will be hosting the Winter Olympic Youth Games (Jeux Olympiques de la Jeunesse d’Hiver in French). Head-quarters are in Lausanne and competition sites for the seven disciplines are in the Engadin, Jura and Swiss Alps.

This event is under the patronage of the IOC (International Olympic Committee) and Roland Noirat, in collaboration of the local sports MDs in charge, has obtained the inclusion of chiropractic in the medical organisation in three competition  SITES. Two are in Lausanne and one is in Champery.   

The WYOG are the second-largest winter multi-sport event in the world after the Olympic Games. To have chiropractic present at these games within the framework of the medical team is a privilege for our profession. We want to live up to the challenge and provide the best professional service there is. It is an opportunity to contribute and be part of an exceptional event and live a unique experience.

Have a look at the attendance requirements at the different game sites   HERE
Depending on the site and/or function, it is not necessary to hold advanced sports certification.

It is necessary to pre-register as soon as possible using the form   HERE
As of June 2019, there are only three more DCs that are needed to complete the delegation.

Surely you must have questions.
As it is not possible to list here all the details, we encourage you to contact Roland at:

General Assembly 2019 -  Saas-Fee
The last general assembly was held on Friday March 8, 2019

Below the major items :

Committee and executive: The executive members announced that a younger team must step forward and get involved for running the SCSC. Nobody of the members present wanted to take on responsibility. An extraordinary assembly will be called to rediscuss the issue.
Membership:  Membership has increased by 4 to a total of 76 paid-up members at the end of 2018.
Treasury: The SCSC finances are solid and no extraordinary expenses are expected for 2019.
The budget 2018 was presented. Books, budget and auditors report were accepted by the assembly.
Ways were considered to keep surpluses lower than in the past. They included lowering the membership fee and/or seminar fees.  
A financial help for chiropractic equipment for the students wishing to do their clincial 6th year at the CHUV in Lausanne was discussed.  
Considerations: Can the SCSC continue without a committee as it is set up presently by the statutes of the       constitution? The Jolly Organizers are willing to continue to organize at least one annual event.

The date of the next General Assembly will be announced when the seminar location in 2020 is known.


Project for a SCSC Sports Certificate endorsed by ChiroSuisse

At the GA 2017 interest was expressed to offer beyond the ICCSP a more advanced sports education leading to certification and a title given by SCSC, endorsed by ChiroSuisse. This postgraduate professional specialized certification program is called in German „Fähigkeitsausweis“, in French "Certificat de Formation Complémentaire" and is meant to be equivalent to an academic education such as a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) or a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS).  More information :   Project
