The Centre for Sport Capacity has grown its opportunities to provide meaningful experiential learning to students while offering valuable support to community sport organizations in Niagara with the introduction of the Sport Support Team (SST). The SST assists in enhancing local sport associations operations in several functional areas to achieve improved capacity.
This initiative includes a small group of enthusiastic and committed student volunteers who provide practical support to sport organizations that are looking to build capacity. Team members gain the opportunity to build meaningful connections while making a positive change in the local youth sport community.
Below is a list of the organizations we have previously partnered with. With more exciting opportunities and support added in the 2022-2023 school year, the Sport Support Team is a growing entity that has and will contribute meaningful assistance to the Niagara Region.
