RE: 2025 Canada Summer Games, St. John's Newfoundland
The purpose of the Canada Games Apprenticeship Program is to provide women and indigenous coaches with a practical and integrated major national multi-sport Games experience. Selected coaches have direct involvement in preparation and competition and receive support from an identified mentor coach throughout the duration of the program.
These programs provide the opportunity for each province and territory to send 2 female coaches and 2 indigenous coaches to the Canada Games in apprenticeship roles. Apprenticeship programs are an essential part of the development of a coach. Furthermore, apprenticeship programs can be used as a means to build capacity in underrepresented populations in coaching, such as women and indigenous.
Coaches applying to either Canada Games Apprenticeship Program must meet eligibility requirements that include no higher than NCCP Competition – Development in Training, or NCCP Level 2 Certified. Applicants must also be able to commit to the program objectives and requirements.
From all coach applications received, each PSO may nominate ONE coach for each program and submit to SPAR for final selection. Up to two women and two indigenous coaches will be selected by SPAR to participate in the 2025 Canada Games Apprenticeship Programs with successful applicants being notified by April 2024.
