Sport Support Team

The Centre for Sport Capacity is increasing 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 will assist in enhancing local sport associations operations in several functional areas to achieve improved capacity. 

This new initiative will include a small group of enthusiastic and committed student volunteers who will provide practical support to sport organizations that are rebuilding after the pandemic. Team members will also have the opportunity to build meaningful connections and make a positive change in the community. 

This program will primarily run in the 2022 Winter Term, with professional development opportunities such as training workshops and industry expert networking beginning in November 2021. Collaboration between the local sports organization and student volunteer will begin shortly to establish a workplan to be implemented with support.
