2021 Canada Games Apprentice Coach Programs

The Canada Games Council, the Coaching Association of Canada, and the Provincial/Territorial Coaching Representatives strongly believe that coaching apprenticeship programs are an essential part of the development of a coach.  Furthermore, apprentice Programs can be a means to attract and support underrepresented populations in coaches, such as female and Aboriginal coaches.  The Canada Games have featured apprenticeship coach programs in every Games since the 2005 Canada Summer Games.  The program provides up to two females and two Aboriginal coaches from Alberta the opportunity to develop their coaching skills through the Canada Games.

Team Alberta Logo

Every province and territory at the Canada Summer Games has official team colors. Alberta’s color’s are blue, white and grey. The blue portrays the vast prairie skies while the grey symbolizes winter. The lightning bolt in the logo reminds us of Alberta’s thunderstorms, but mostly it represents the power and electricity that Team Alberta athletes will possess! The bolt is located on the southwest corner of the logo to indicate the location of the rugged Rocky Mountains in the province. Also, the lightning creates the shape of an evergreen tree symbolizing Alberta’s many forests, in the middle of the “A”.
