Sport Yukon inducted two Yukoners to its Yukon Sports Hall of Fame recently, James (Jamie) Shaw and Ken Sylvestre.

On Tuesday, May 16, 2023, Jamie Shaw was inducted into the Yukon Sports Hall of Fame.  Shaw was a dedicated coach and teacher as well as serving as the athletic director at F.H. Collins Secondary School from 2007 to 2016, when he became the school’s Vice-Principal. 

He coached a number of teams across a variety of sports, including basketball, hockey, and athletics, and coached for Team Yukon in numerous national and international competitions, including the Canada Games, Arctic Winter Games, Western Canada Games, and more.

Shaw believed that hard work paid off and saw sport as the perfect conduit for athletes and coaches alike to challenge themselves, to grow, and ultimately to succeed. 

“Sometimes in life things go wrong,” Shaw said. “It’s how you deal with it. Sports give us the avenue to learn how to deal with it.”

He cherished education, both as a responsibility and privilege as a teacher, but also as a life-long student, who continually trained and gained coaching certifications in a variety of sports.

Sport Yukon also inducted Ken Sylvestre into the Yukon Sports Hall of Fame. The induction happened as part of the celebration of life for Sylvestre held on Sunday, May 28, 2023 at the Mount McIntyre Recreation Centre.

Sylvestre was a cornerstone of the Yukon sport community. He was a founding organizer of the Yukon River Trail Marathon (YRTM) and a long-time volunteer board member and organizer of the Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay (KCIBR).

A born-and-raised Yukoner, Sylvestre’s love of the outdoors was well known, and fed his passion and involvement in outdoor sport. He believed in serving his community and in sharing his excitement for outdoor sport. 

In addition to his major roles with both the Yukon River Trail Marathon and the Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay, he was a dedicated volunteer who gave his time to the Yukon Soccer Association, the Klondike Road Relay, and more.

In his professional life, Sylvestre was a talented systems expert, which he applied to sport as the Vice-President of Information Technology for the 2007 Canada Winter Games and Assistant Director of Communications and Information Technology for the 2000 Arctic Winter Games.
