The purpose of the Rise Up Project Management Committee is to bring new perspective to cultural challenges faced by CAS and propose workable solutions that can be executed at NSO, PTSO and Club level. Additionally, the RUMC will oversee several sub-groups to ensure timely completion of tasks. This group will guide and direct some aspects of the decision-making process to continually move the detailed actions within the Rise Up Plan forward – for presentation to CAS Board as applicable.
We are currently in the process of putting together the Rise Up Project Management Committee (RUMC). We plan to announce the composition of this committee as well as other partners in the next 90 days (phase 01).


We welcome everyone to share their ideas and opinions to be able to create a better environment for our athletes. We invite you to follow us on social media and to communicate all questions and feedback at [email protected]
