COACHES ARE MENTORS, MOTIVATORS AND LEADERS
Along with parents and teachers, coaches have a profound impact on the future of our children. It is a great responsibility, and Canada’s two million coaches embrace it with passion and dedication.
We work to provide coaches and coach developers with access to development and education opportunities, support mechanisms and funding resources to continue the pursuit of coaching excellence across Alberta.

WOMEN IN COACHING CANADA GAMES APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
The Women in Coaching Canada Games Apprenticeship Program in Alberta is a partnership between, Canada Games Council (CGC), Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), Provincial Sport Organizations and Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Branch.
This program provides the opportunity for each province and territory to send 2 female coaches to the Canada Games in apprenticeship roles. The apprenticeship program is 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 aboriginals.
The purpose of the Canada Games Apprenticeship Program is to provide women 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.
