Canada Games Apprentice Coach


The Canada Games Apprentice Program is a joint endeavour between CAO, the Canada Games Council and the Coaching Association of Canada that provides 2 female coaches and 2 aboriginal coaches the opportunity to attend the next Canada Summer or Winter games as an apprentice coach in their sport.

The goal of the program is to provide developing coaches with a practical and integrated major national multi-sport games experience. There is no cost to the coach, and selected coaches have direct involvement in preparation and competition and receive support from an identified mentor coach throughout the duration of the program.
