As Program Coordinator at Canadian Women & Sport, Vanessa is focused on the retention of girls in sport in Canada. Vanessa is a former varsity basketball player for the University of Toronto and now uses her passion and experience to teach life skills through sport at Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment LaunchPad.

Amélie was introduced to the sport of boccia during preparation for the 2016 Rio Paralympics. She has a Master’s degree in sport psychology from the University of Ottawa, and a doctorate in organizational psychology from the University of Sherbrooke. She is now a mental training specialist at the Québec National Institute of Sport and works with the Canadian boccia team.

Lindsey has a long history in sport. She started out as a figure skating judge, which was a role she filled for more than 30 years. After that, she went on to be involved in ladies’ ice hockey, as well as youth and adult 5-pin bowling. She coached the Youth National Seniors Boys Team to a gold medal win in bowling, and also coached men’s, ladies’ and mixed teams at four national championships. She has a rich experience in sport, be it as a coach, referee, or judge. She is now a performance partner in boccia to her daughter, Hayley Redmond.

Marylou has been playing boccia since she was nine years old. She is the youngest female on the National Boccia Training Squad and was quickly identified as a rising star in the sport. As a high-performance athlete, she has multiple international competitions under her belt, including the 2016 Rio Paralympics and the 2019 Lima Parapan Am Games. To support her dedication to the sport, her family built a boccia court on the second floor of her house to make sure she never misses an opportunity to practice.
