As part of the Canada Games Apprenticeship Program, 21 women and 18 Indigenous coaches from across Canada will meet in the Niagara Region of Ontario to participate in the 2022 Canada Summer Games.

In an effort to provide women and Indigenous coaches with a practical and integrated major national multi-sport games experience, the Canada Games Apprenticeship Program supports those selected with professional development opportunities and mentorship. Connecting apprentice coaches with high-performance mentor coaches, the Canada Games Apprenticeship Program encourages continued education and participation from populations that are traditionally underrepresented in coaching.

“The Canada Games is a time for us to witness and celebrate rising stars in sport and coaching from across the nation, ” says Lorraine Lafrenière, Chief Executive Officer of the Coaching Association of Canada. “It’s the ideal setting  for the selected coach apprentices to gain valuable experience with coach mentors in a multi-sport context  over the course of the Games.”

The Canada Games is a high-level, national multi-sport competition held every two years, alternating between summer and winter. Top amateur athletes in Canada train to be chosen to represent their respective province or territory. This year’s Canada Games take place August 6th to 21st, showcasing 18 different sports.

“We would like to congratulate all of the coaches selected for the Aboriginal Apprentice Coach Program,” says Matt Tapper, Chief Executive Officer of Aboriginal Sport Circle. “After the games being delayed due to the pandemic, we are excited to see all the hard work that the Indigenous apprentice coaches have put into the program finally come to practice, and that we appreciate the partnership with the CAC and look forward to continuing that work.”
