Funding the future; Athletics Canada announces high school scholarships

Athletics Canada understands the importance of introducing and keeping youth involved in athletics. As a result, the Athletics Canada Foundation is pleased to announce funding for two scholarships for 2017 graduating high school student-athletes.

“We are committed to promoting excellence and nurturing the development of young athletes. With this mission in mind, we are proud to announce the creation of the Athletics Canada Foundation Scholarship,” said Rob Guy, Chief Executive Officer. “Athletics Canada will continue fundraising efforts to ensure the Athletics Canada Foundation Scholarship becomes an annual opportunity for graduating student-athletes.”

The $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to one male and one female multi-sport athlete with a passion for athletics who is graduating from high school and committed to continuing athletic and academic pursuits in Canada.

Athletics Canada’s commitment to supporting high school athletics does not end there. For the third year in a row, www.athleticscanada.tv will produce and webcast live coverage of the ASAA High School Track and Field Championships, B.C. High School Sport Track and Field Championships and OFSAA Track and Field and Cross Country Championships. 

In close partnership with School Sport Canada, Athletics Canada has also developed three Fundamentals of Athletics Learning E-Modules that are available at no cost to high school coaches across Canada. Fundamentals of Athletics Jumping Events, Throwing Events and Track Events are available at www.schoolcoach.ca/courses.aspx.
